FLOOD BUT DASHBOARD DISPLAYS

2012 Honda Accord • 4 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 22,000 miles

I am buying a 2012 honda accord and its a flood but the dasboard lights up. What do you think is the extent of damage because I aint there to inspect physically. It just wont start but dashboard lights up or displays.

So this car was in water flood?If so stay far away from it no telling the extent of the damage plus problems you will see later for years to come down the road.

I totally agree with Saturntech. Why would you ever want to buy a flood car? Unless you only need the sheet metal parts, that will be the biggest nightmare you ever had. There are all kinds of expensive electronic modules, some at floorboard level. The insurance companies total those for a reason.

Guys,

Thanks for your response.I am just thinking this flood is not totally submerged. The dashboard displays well.

If it reached the bottom of the seats, it's junk.
