When flooded to such depth, it is better to scrap the vehicle.
The engine and transmission control units and some other electrical components have been damaged due to water entry.
The wire harness and interior has to be cleaned and dried out.
The brakes calipers would have to be serviced to prevent them from seizing in the near future.
Cables for trunk, fuel lid and hand brakes would be soaked and over time, they are going to seize as there is no way of cleaning them.
The engine and transmission has to be flushed if water had gained entry.
All these are not going to be cheap.
