Why Should I Run a Colorado VIN Check?
Check for accidents. Countless vehicles with previous accident records were sold in the state. Not all of them are certified safe for driving though. Run a VIN number check on any car to know if it meets the right safety standard. According to the 2021 Colorado Crash Report, a total of 121,64 traffic crashes were reported in 2019. In 544 fatal traffic crashes, 596 people were killed. With the exception of the year 2017, the motor vehicle fatality rate in Colorado has been lower than the national average over the past ten years.
Check for thefts. According to the FBI’s 2019 Crime in US reports, Colorado had a total of 22,113 incidents of motor vehicle theft in 2019. Every year, about half a million vehicles are stolen in the country. Many unsuspecting buyers have bought stolen units, including those with stolen parts. They were not compensated when the police took away their vehicles. To avoid this scenario, you can inspect the VIN to confirm a vehicle theft.
Check for title brands. Watch out for missing titles. In 2013, thousands of Colorado vehicles were damaged by floods. Many of them were sold with washed titles. As a result, designations like flood, hail-damage, rebuilt and salvage titles may not show up from state records. The hailstorm that hit Metro Denver on May 8, 2017 was Colorado’s most expensive disaster which cost $2.3 billion. Colorado is tied with Nevada in rank as 10th most disaster-prone state with 96 major disaster declarations since the year 1953.
