No doubt, if you buy a used car you need to learn to understand a CarFax report (CF). A CarFax report is available in most of the cars on the lot of a used car dealership. What makes it work is the CF VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on every car made since 1981 and the number to 17 characters engraved on many components of the body.
Buy a used car without seeing the CF is just crazy. It costs a few dollars and you can save a small fortune in return.
When a car is involved in a collision that needs a body of work in the body shop reported the damage to the FC, the owner, has no word on the subject. When a car is flunking inspection of emissions of the state, the incident is reported to CarFax. When a car is destroyed by a flood, hurricane, or other types of water damage which is reported to CarFax.
Do not know that cars were rebuilt by criminals, after being destroyed by water damage. If your car uses four tires in two months, you can then determine the car had been totaled in a terrible car accident and was repaired the original appearance.
Warnings indicate odometer reading when the odometer has been tampered with. All kinds of crazy legal issues may affect the title to the car. CF takes all sorts of scams, run by thugs, which may affect the title to the car. No trash, recovery, rebuilding, fire, hail, floods, lemon, types of race tracks and mechanical CarFax alert for anything but a regular basis.
FC buy the car if the buyer finds something CarFax lose - the warranty on every car that passes all your checks.
