Does any of this sound alarmimg as to stay clear of this vehicle?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Sorry, there's a lag. I have pics. Stand by

Yes, definately, especially if its inside, it would have to have been flooded to get it under the set and on the rails, and since it has a fresh coat of undercoa, they obviously are trying to cover it up,, can you post the pictures?

Ask Your Own Ford Question

that is definately not normal, I do believe it was a flood vehicle, the problem with flood damage, is it could a year down the road when problems start occuring, and it can be very exoensive,Tim

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
