In many states, they do not require totaled vehicles to have a
Auto nation then has them transferred to other states to be sold as Vehicles that were not in a wreck.
Buyer be wear! You can easily tell if this is the case.
No matter what state or what dealership you buy a vehicle from,
do check all around the vehicle for "over spray" paint, where paint does not belong. Any good mechanic can tell this for you and they would know what else to look for.

CARS THAT WERE IN THE FLOODS IN THE LAST YEAR
