    Write off ???

    Basically my mum's car was flooded in the recent weather and it's now been passed onto the insurance company....the water level reached maybe 3 inch inside the car......

    General opinion is they will declare it a write off basically because of the electrics, not because there not working now but because they MAY fault in the near future.

    Anyway she's thinking if it is written off of buying it back......people thoughts please.......especially those that are electrically minded and know what the chances of it being repareable? Would it be worth buying back? Or more trouble than it's worth?

    Thanks people
