A friend of mine recently looked at a used car to purchase. Thankfully, a friend went along who happened to notice alot of rust under the carpet in the trunk area. Beware. Some of the cars that were written off as total loss by insurance companies from the hurricane ARE BEING SOLD by individuals. Be careful. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is trouble. There are ways of tracing the car's history through the vin???? number on the car. It is well worth the $ to find out the used car's history; especially since unscrupulous people are selling cars that flooded in the hurricane.
