I would never buy a car with a flood title. If it is in RI, chances are it is salt water. Salt water that seeps into the doors, floor, etc causes unseen rust and body rot. Just the title tells you everything. Not to mention what it has done to the engine: ie rusty cylinder walls, corroded electrical, cables etc. Save your money and invest in another vehicle.

Dont even consider it we repaired 5 or 6 of them and within a couple of thousand miles they shot craps, also you cant get a title, they must be fixed within minutes of removal from the water, and water gets into places you cant remove water carries dirt abrasive, close the book and stay away

Do not buy it. That car will be a nightmare to repair and will always give you trouble. That is why they get totalled out.
