What to look for on a flooded vehicle?
The smell is probably the most recognisable thing. Like a mildew smell.
Moisture beneath the carpet. Most dealers just clean the carpet because that is what customers see, it also happens on leather seats inside there is a sponge and the water is found inside.
Foggy windows on the inside could also reflect there is moisture inside the vehicle.
When you turn on the ignition switch, check and make sure all electric components are functional.
- Check for water marks/stains in the headliner, in the seats and carpet.
