Just to make sure - a Carfax report will report the vehicle's area of origin, isn't that right? For example, I live in WI and have checked Carfax reports on 3 vans we're looking at. 1 had 1 owner in Wisconsin, and 2 are vehicles that were leased in Michigan. So none of these 3 cars could have been flood damaged.

A reputable title reporting company should be able to identify cars that originated in flood-zone states.
