From the article

Quote:
Back in February of 2015, a rough winter storm rocked Halifax port just as a fresh shipment of 2014 and 2015 model year BMW and Mini cars had arrived, as reported at the time by CBC.

Due to the extensive “exposure to standing water and salt for an extended period,” Transport Canada—the transportation regulatory department of the Canadian government—issued a recall for the 2,966 vehicles in port affected by the storm back in 2015.

The cars have been sitting at ADESA Vancouver, a salvage auction yard, ever since. According to the official recall, the Mini models were determined to be at increased risk of crash due to “corrosion at the starter motor power supply cable connectors, which could lead to the inability to restart the engine following an engine shutdown by the start-stop (MSA) system.”

The same recall determined the BMW models were at increased risk of crash because “lubrication of some internal components within the steering rack may have been exposed to excessive water or salt which could result in higher than normal steering effort or steering binding.”

I guess the titles must have been branded as flood cars? Otherwise they would have been auctioned off by now? Even if they were flood cars, could they not have been sold as "parts only" non-registerable?

Most of the cars were actually delivered to customers already. The recall was issued a while after the storm and customers had to bring them back to the stores.

It was a great deal for those affected tho, a second chance of ordering the car you wanted if you missed any options they and got to drive the car for like 6 months then get another brand new one

Imagine what they are paying to store those cars. They should cut their losses and send them to the crusher, unless Adesa owns them.

I'm pretty sure I could make a full time job of parting out and disposing of those cars.

recalled vehicles that can't be road-worthy again have to be sent to the crusher, no?
