Why Should I Run a Maryland VIN Check?
Check for accidents. Some cars in the market may have ongoing issues that may become too problematic later on if left unresolved. Make sure that you only buy cars that will not cause you trouble in the long run. A VIN check covers accidents, repairs, recalls and other important details. According to the 2019 IIHS report, a total of 484 fatal crashes resulting in 521 deaths were reported in 2019. Despite that, Maryland’s crash fatality rate was lower than the national crash fatality rate (0.87 vs 1.10 per hundred million vehicle miles) in 2019.
Check for thefts. According to the FBI’s 2019 Crime in US reports, Maryland had a total of 11,259 incidents of motor vehicle theft in 2019. One of these days, you may encounter some of these cars on the road or on a display. Stay vigilant of any stolen or shady cars being resold in the used car market. Run a free car report by VIN to check police records and updates on theft.
Check for title brands. Flood, hail-damage and salvage titles are very telling of the rough experiences a car has. Given Maryland can be prone to extreme weather, it is not surprising that some cars may end up badly damaged by natural hazards. While not on the list of disaster-prone states, Maryland still has its shares of flooded-out cars that appear on car sales.
