“Flood Cars” may be coming to NY

State officials are warning New Yorkers to check out used vehicles that may have been totaled by recent storms.

Governor Andrew Cuomo notes that Hurricane Harvey has left hundreds of thousands of seriously damaged cars with many more possible as the hurricane season continues.   That leaves the potential for re-sale in other states, including New York.

The State Department of Motor Vehicles website (https://dmv.ny.gov/registration/flood-or-stolen-cars#_blank) has a link to the National Insurance Bureau to check out the VIN…the Vehicle Identification Number.  It allows consumers to find out if the car they want to buy has been salvaged or stolen.

The DMV website also has tips on buying vehicles and the protections available when purchasing a used vehicle.
