The Iowa Attorney General’s office is warning used car buyers to beware of purchasing a vehicle that may’ve been damaged by flooding last year in North Carolina. Bob Brammer, a spokesperson for the Attorney General, says there were thousands of cars damaged in the flooding caused by hurricane Floyd. Brammer says some states don’t have laws requiring that flood damage be noted on a car’s title. He says a car could go to one of those states and then end up in Iowa without any indication that it’s damaged.Brammer says Iowa has worked with North Carolina to put a list of the flood-damaged cars on the internet.The Iowa A-G’s website is: www.state.ia.us/government/ag/consumer.html. Brammer says you could be stuck with your purchase if you don’t check it out first.Brammer says the A-G’s office doesn’t know of anyone in Iowa yet who might have unknowingly purchased one of the flood-damaged cars from North Carolina.
