    Hi, I’m new to this community.
    I’m a huge tesla fan and last week I found a flooded Model 3 long range in an auction that’s happening on Wednesday.
    It seems like it happened during the floods of Guadalajara, Mexico in this past months. The photos show that the car has no other damage than the flood and something to do with the frunk.
    Does anyone know if the car could still work? And if that’s the case, would I have to do anything special to get It up and running?
    Thank you

    If it’s a salvage title, Tesla will not let you Supercharge among other things. There is a process for getting it re-certified, but it costs a lot and there is no guarantee the car will pass. Search for the flooded Tesla Model S thread on this forum done by Youtuber’s RichRebuilds.
