Vehicle history reports are so inaccurate. I would not trust or base buying a car off one . Iv worked in dealership and around cars my whole life I see what's done to get cars sold. Plus not everything is record. Iv hit stuff with my truck and my friends and family also. I fixed fixed and painted cars. Or had friends to it at there shops. None of that's stuff been reported. All cars clean and accident free. Lol. I just got a Dodge Charger 5.7 hemi. And dealer was like low mile no accidents. Well. After owning it couple weeks. I open up back door. Something didn't look right. Started pulling up trim and rubber and bam. Car was repainted. And had. Tape lines and over spray. Guess. Car fax missed that one lol.

Exactly. Asking for CarFax reports here used to be a much more common occurrence. Yes, I used to be one those people asking for one... until I saw with my own eyes that these reports are worth less than the paper they're printed on. Too much, including major stuff, is never reported and therefore never appears in these reports.

I was just hoping to track how many owners there were, along with the mileage as it was sold. Stuff like that.

Plus. It's in the best interest of. The car dealer world not to report all it will do is hurt the used car market for resales. A sale man. Can't sell a car. If it's say. Hit many times. Or. This or that. Soooo. Things get. "Overlooked" Can't sell repaired hit cars at premium prices . To many suckers put there trust in a paper. Saying It's all good . Don't believe everything you read.

I became of suspicious of CarFax after I read a totally positive report on a particular Indy Fiero I had looked at... when I had already learned from the owner (an honest guy!) that he had acquired the Fiero after it had been written off by an insurance company and he had rebuilt it. Nothing was in the CarFax report about any accident.

Total waste of time (and/or money if you pay for it). I posted the following earlier this year in This thread. There's other useful information is in that thread as well.

My experience with Autocheck (and/or Carfax) when running a VIN is less than favorable. So much info is usually missing that it basically renders the report worthless.

My advice is to save your money. You may get other opinions from other members here.

The following is what Autocheck reported on an '88 Formula that I brought up from the States in 2013. What I've posted is what I got. I was hoping to at least get some relatively current odometer readings as the instrument pod was missing in the car. As you can see, the only odometer reading was from 1990. Useless!
