Being in the car biz, I can say from experience that flooded cars are a nightmare. They can be dried out, but they are never "right" after being flooded because of all the electronics. Window motors and locks begin to fail, bad connections everywhere due to corrosion, bad ECU connections and corroded wires caused strange drivability problems that were a bitch to run down and fix.

Back in 1998 we had a big flood in the town where I had the car dealership, and I got extra greedy and decided I would make lots of money doing flooded car insurance claim work. I created an entirely new group of people who hated me after that fiasco. [emoji30]
