Tennessee officials are warning residents about flood-damaged cars that might be for sale following recent heavy rains and flooding across the state. A news release from the Tennessee Motor Vehicle Commission — part of the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance's Regulatory Boards — says scammers often try to take advantage of car-buyers after a flood or natural disaster. "It's a common practice for owners of flooded vehicles that have been declared total losses by insurance companies to be allowed to retain damaged vehicles," a news release states. "Instead of sending the flooded car to the junkyard, scammers will attempt to sell flooded vehicles quickly, hoping to stay ahead of computer system updates so that title check systems don't have time to detect a car's history. By the time a consumer discovers the vehicle's history, the seller will be long gone." The Motor Vehicle Anti-Theft Act of 1996 makes a clear distinction between a "freshwater flood" vehicle … [Read more...] about Tennessee officials warn residents to be on lookout for flood-damaged cars for sale

MATAMOROS, Tamaulipas — The drug cartel that controls this city has branched out their extortion operations by demanding payment for every used car that is imported from Texas. The most recent method deals with cartel lookouts keeping an eye on Matamoros residents who cross into the Texas border city of Brownsville for work on a daily basis. The lookouts try to determine if the individuals are crossing cars in Mexico to sell them without paying cartel fees.The border city of Matamoros is directly south of Brownsville, Texas. It is the birthplace of Mexico’s Gulf Cartel. For several decades, the criminal organization has not only controlled the flow of drugs and migrants from Matamoros into Brownsville but they have also controlled the crossing of other goods across the waters of the Rio Grande. Breitbart Texas spoke with Mexican law enforcement sources that confirmed the presence of lookouts who station themselves near international bridges to ensure that all … [Read more...] about Cartel Controls the Importation of Used Cars in Mexican Border City
Eric D. Lawrence Detroit Free Press Published 11:13 p.m. UTC Jun 27, 2018 Could a used car be in your future? It may be a possibility for some car shoppers as they get squeezed by economic factors in coming months, according to a midyear review of the auto industry Wednesday in Detroit by Cox Automotive. Although the economy remains strong, with low unemployment, a healthy stock market and solid consumer confidence, finding a new vehicle that fits a need for affordability could be tough, the analysts said. Charlie Chesbrough, Cox Automotive senior economist, cited several issues that could push consumers to embrace used cars. For instance, a flood of off-lease vehicles is expected to peak next year at about 4.1 million from 2.2 million in 2014, and automakers are no longer targeting the under-$20,000 vehicle segment, meaning new vehicles have been getting pricier. Wages are going up but not enough to offset other factors, such as the increase in gas prices. … [Read more...] about In the market for a used car? Tariff talks might benefit you

The former coaching inn has been a blight on Fore Street, Kingsbridge, for a while, going through a long list of tenants, before being put up for sale with a guide price of £400,000 in 2016, when it was bought by Luke Winham in 2016.Despite a planning application being submitted and approved by South Hams Council, which included a commercial space on the ground floor and residential units on the upper floors, with two more homes built in the car park, the only work done on the property appears to be the installation of barriers, preventing drivers using the car park. The building is now up for sale again, and with the planning permission, is now going to auction with a guide price of at least £1.2million.
