Used Engines - What Are You Really Getting?
A flash flood sweeps your neighborhood and numerous vehicles are covered in water. A drunk driver crosses the median and collides head on with another car, instanly killing those involved and spreading human remains throughout the interior and engine compartment of these cars.
These are tragic stories, but have you ever wondered what happens to these vehicles?
In many of these cases, the insurance companies determine that these vehicles can not be brought back to safe driving standards. Because they are not safe for your family to drive, they are sold to wrecking yards. Often times, the wrecking yard dismantles the car and removes individual parts off of it, including the engine.
These engines typically end up on ebay or are otherwise sold on the internet as used engines to unsuspecting buyers.
There have even been instances where human blood and remains were found on these used engines!
