    My name is Gia, I'm from Tbilisi, Georgia. No, this is not the state in the US.
    There is such a small country on the outskirts of Europe, one of the republics of the former USSR
    4 months ago, I bought at the copart auction a car of my dreams :) Challenger SXT 2016.

    It cost me the annual salary .. Yes, the salary we are not as high as in Georgia :)
    Transportation from Houston to the Black Sea took 4 months, of which 2 months the car stood in the port of Houston.
    The car was damaged by water with TX - SALVAGE TITLE-FLOOD DAMAGE, but run &drive.

    Water line got almost to the door. Tell me please, what am I afraid of? What could the water do?

    PS. Sorry for my english, translated by Google J

    Hi and welcome.
    Depends on how much water was on inside and how long it was there. If it was just in the floor boards, and didn't get much higher. .you should be ok. Even if the electronics didn't get wet, if it sat for a while in a closed vehicle the humidity can cause pre-mature failures.
    Also I would pull up the carpet and check for dampness and/or mold. Carpet is easily replaced and if mold...it can be steam cleaned.
    I hope everything turns out ok.

    The car in the container, the container on the ship .. Three days later unloaded at the port .
    Therefore, I asked the members of the forum, take it on its own from the port or load it on the tow truck

    I would look at engine oil change, rear diff oil change for sure. Have transmission fluid check for possible water contamination.
    Pull out all the carpet to check for mold.
    Normal driving road spray doesn't hurt a car, but sitting in it you never know.
