The U.S. Department of Justice reports that the 2017 hurricane season left up to one million cars partially or completely submerged. State and federal officials are warning used-car shoppers to beware of vehicles with undisclosed flood damage. Pennsylvania’s Acting Insurance Commissioner Jessica Altman and Kurt Myers, the deputy secretary for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, issued a joint warning to consumers to look out for flood-damaged cars being sold as new or used vehicles. “Car buyers should beware of any deals that seem too good to be true,” they said. Consumers are advised to use automobile background check services before buying a used car.
