I'm next to Danbury, we got no floods, but we had a bunch of tree damage.

Yeah exactly - this flag is likely for FEMA areas relating to flood damage and you're up in the mountains...

Yes, we all do. Save this to your favorites and put your VIN in where it's obvious.

Fine line here, but it just really seems like government overreach to me. The inclusion of this language is sure to decrease the value of any car registered in a flood area, even though the vehicle may have been nowhere near the area during the event or unaffected. If someone is looking at two identical cars, but one has that language, my bet is that most people will walk away from the flood area titled vehicle without bothering to have it checked. Bend over, big brother is coming in.

Why do you think the government is adding it? Couldn't it be the insurance companies not want to insure flood damaged vehicles?

Auto heck is not a government organization. They are a private company who chose to add add that verbiage.

My guess is that someone in a post Katrina world bought a flooded out car, that rusted out and sued.

Do now the lawyers tell them to cover their asses.

Good point Jason. I was just narrowly focused on government, but can appreciate the other influences.

As with anything, due diligence and buyer beware should be guiding principles.

Well, I was just about to call AutoCheck today to get an explanation on this, when I decided to run the report on my truck again. Magically, it's gone!

I wonder who else caused a stink to make them delete the wording from the report(s).
