tried to go across a section of road that was flooded out. The water picked me up and I lost all traction carried me backwards a 100 yards and the flash flood carried me to the creek and it went down in about 20 feet of water. After it sank the water rolled it onto the roof and I shot out the Drivers window. Could not find it for three days

Traded? If that's the case it's scary that this is in a fleet on some lot w a price tag.
