Thousands of vehicles damaged during Hurricane Sandy are up for sale at used car lots.

Carfax, which is a vehicle records company in Centreville, Virginia, estimates that about 212,000 flooded cars are on the road today. 

The company says these so called "Sandy cars" may look alright - but their airbags and other safety systems may not work properly.
