Nigeria consumer's society carried out an investigation on the credibility of imported automobiles in Nigeria and we discover that most of the automobiles shipped into Nigeria through Republic of Benin, Niger or even directly shipped from renowned international countries like the United Kingdom and even United state of America have been subjected to heavy flooding.
It's no longer news that importers of automobiles in Nigeria deliberately imports slightly or heavily flooded cars at a very cheap prize and often sell them at good prices here.
The honest truth is a once flooded car is almost a totally damaged car irrespective of how much these importers tends to temporally repair, wash and repaint them to look appealing to the eyes of intending customers, there are always this high level of rottenness internally hidden in around flood cars an automobile expert confided in at his car stand in Lagos Nigeria.
Are you considering buying a used car? Endeavour not to buy a flooded fairly used car.
WHY YOU SHOULD NOT BUY IT:
1. The electrical system will never come back to a 1oo percent normal state.
2. Mechanical system failure is bound to be constant.
3. Metal works breakdown or degrading no thanks to hard fighting corrosion.
Note: Any cars that have been submerged in salt water suffer serious corrosion.
HERE ARE TIPS ON HOW TO AVOID FAIRLY USED CARS:
1. INQUIRE THE COUNTRY THE CAR IS IMPORTED FROM.
Most US cars mostly areas that have suffered hurricanes have the tendency to be a flood car.
2. IDENTIFY FLOOD CARS BY THE WAY THEY SMELL
Most flood cars smell damp and musty when you open the door.
3 CORROSION EATEN
No matter new a flood car might seems, under the car would have corroded faster than the rest of the body, inspect under and check for corrosion (rust).
4. 3. A WHITE, MAYONNAISE-LIKE EMULSION ON THE UNDERSIDE OF THE CAP. The white mayonnaise-like molten presence could suggest water in the engine oil or, even worse, head gasket failure.
5. DASHBOARD MALFUNCTION
Every flood car electronic system has the tendency to malfunction, no matter how much repairs the dashboard signals will malfunction one way or the other.
Inspecting an automobile to see if it's been flooded or not can be quit technical, we advice you contract experts to carry out car inspection service for you.
