Vehicles that have salvage titles are required to have a Michigan VIN check and be inspected by a specially trained salvage vehicle inspector before a license plate may be purchased for the vehicle.

Why Should I Run a Michigan VIN Check?
Check for accidents. Many used cars that were afflicted by damages from vehicle crashes may be resold as new to unsuspecting buyers. Foil any attempt to scam you off your hard-earned money by running a VIN check. As per the 2019 IIHS report, in 902 fatal traffic crashes, 985 people were killed in 2019. Michigan’s crash fatality rate was lower than the national crash fatality rate (0.96 vs 1.10 per hundred million vehicle miles) in 2019.
Check for thefts. According to the FBI’s 2019 Crime in US reports, Michigan had a total of 17,744 incidents of motor vehicle theft in 2019. There is always a possibility of encountering them during a car sale. Run a free car report by VIN to check records of theft and theft recoveries.
Check for title brands. Flood, hail-damage, and salvage titles are examples of critical title brands that you need to watch out for before buying a used car. Out-of-state cars that may come from disaster-prone states can appear on dealerships where you shop for the right vehicle.
