Why a History Report

At one time there was no way to check a vehicle's history. Buyers could only go on the evidence in front of them, basing their decision on the mechanical condition of the car. But computer technology has made it possible to use the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to reveal a car's possibly checkered past. Ordering a vehicle history report for your potential used car is a simple way to give yourself a peace of mind. If the report comes back clean, you know there are no underlying issues of the car caused by accidents, floods, and many other factors. And for many people, knowing this is well worth the added fee. It is also a smart move too. Your report is broken into nine categories: report summary, vehicle specifications, accident check, mileage accuracy check, lemon check, ownership check, recall check, warranty check and vehicle history details. The different pieces of the report are summarized in a table that may flag problems. While the odometer of a used car might show that it has only 55,000 miles, the Carfax might indicate that the odometer readings at key events in the car's history, emissions tests or title changes, don't match up. Any red flags will be obvious, and in most cases if there are red flags, this is not a vehicle you want to purchase.
