Why Should I Run a Montana VIN Check?
Check for accidents. The used car market is filled with uncertainty. Some cars may be far from what viewers initially expect of them. Skipping background checks has resulted in a lot of disappointments for car buyers when they find out the dark past of their prized possessions. According to the 2019 IIHS report, about 166 fatal crashes and 184 traffic deaths were recorded in 2019. Montana’s crash fatality rate was higher than the national crash fatality rate (1.43 vs 1.10 per hundred million vehicle miles) in 2019.
Check for thefts. Based on the FBI’s 2019 Crime in US reports, Montana had a total of 2,377 recorded instances of automobile theft in 2019 alone. The actual number of stolen cars being resold is probably several times larger than the 2019 figure. Run a free VIN check to get a car report that details theft updates and other criminal activities.
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.
