Flood-Damaged Motor Vehicles

The Motor Vehicle Dealers Institute is incensed that flood-damaged used imported motor vehicles from Japan are still arriving in the country. Steve Downes, Executive Director says, “The Institute does not condone the importation of these flood-damaged vehicles, and urges the appropriate authorities to identify these vehicles, so that they do not enter the nation’s car fleet”.

Downes goes on to say, “The Institute has posted on its web-page, known details of those vehicles landed in New Zealand that have been subject to flood-damage. The Institute’s website is”.

The Institute warns consumers purchasing vehicles from private sellers that if they are flood-damaged vehicles, there is little, if no, right of redress, should problems occur with the vehicle. The MVDI Executive Director, Steve Downes, says, “As these vehicles have been submerged in water, it is inevitable that the vehicles will develop electrical and mechanical problems within a very short time”.
