Bud, I have read about happenings like that. That would mess one up in a hurry. It all boils down to the fact that if a vehicle is submerged in water it is risky business. Evey year after bad storms or hurricanes, ( I live in NC, so we are familiar with hurricanes) I read articles cautioning people about looking a vehicle over before buying, because of possible flood damage. Kinda like the dealership where I once worked. The owner would purchase lease and rental vehicles from northern states where they use a lot of salt in the winter. Our techs then had to inspect them and perform any needed repairs. You have never hears so much cussing in your life, because if a vehicle only needed front brake pads, chances were that one or two bolts would be so corroded that they would break and have to be drilled out. I guess it all boils down to that popular Latin phrase, Caveat Emptor, (Buyer beware).
