Free Vehicle History Report Information
Knowing what to look for in the vehicle history report and what each item means can help you make an informed car decision when buying a used car. Our vehicle history report contains the following information:
Market Value: This shows the estimated average value people are paying for the same car in your area. This is a valuable tool for finding out the car’s worth to help you negotiate for a fair price.
Vehicle Specifications: Your unique VIN will give you information about the car including the year it was built, color, technical specifications, optional equipment installed, and more.
Fuel Efficiency: This refers to how far a car can travel on a specific amount of fuel. With unstable gas prices and uncertain economy, it is very important to make sure you know how much gas your car is consuming.
Safety Rating: This refers to IIHS test results on how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash (crashworthiness) and the availability of technology that can prevent a crash or lessen its severity (crash avoidance and mitigation). Safety rating is an important consideration whether you’re buying a new car or a used car.
Warranty/Manufacturer Recall: Checks warranty problems or recalls associated with a vehicle. In most cases, recalls can be repaired free of charge at the dealership.
