I want to know the history of the car so I’m not going in blind and it also tells you the market value plus all the options and mileage. How many owners recalls how much warranty is left or can it be extended.
This is a great way to look at cars And another way to see what others are saying about the cars with the looks and process. This also helped me buy another car because it describes how it was going to work out.

Carfax provides the most up to date information on autos; a great site to research for buyers. You can also provide input and updates on your vehicle. Most auto dealers use, in fact dealers generally mention and recommend using Carfax for customers to check out used inventory. Carfax data on vehicles are almost always seen on auto dealer websites.
My salesman Todd ** Is a top notch salesman. His level of expertise is one of a kind. If you are looking for a newly used car Todd is your man! You can find Todd @ George’s used cars, located in Brownstown Michigan. Out of 5 stars I rate Todd a 6????
Carfax cannot (does not) tell you that the "executive demonstrator" you are thinking of purchasing was actually a dealer lease vehicle, and also served as a loaner. And if the vehicle is damaged and repaired by the dealership Carfax would also not have that information.
I was selling my 2003 Corvette and CARFAX had a record of it having been in an accident! My car had never been in an accident but they would not remove the false record! My buyer came back and offered me $900 less than the agreed upon price due to CARFAX ERROR! Later on CARFAX admitted to the error but would not reimburse me for the $900 their error cost me! Now I'm pissed every time I see their commercial and how they call their information facts and allude to its reliability. CARFAX are NOT NECESSARILY FACTS NOR RELIABLE! Buyer & Seller BEWARE OF CARFAX!
prices are outrageous, we went from 300 to 800 for a small 50 car dealership over the course of a couple years. Then when we moved locations had a brief period of having 2 locations (which the sales guy knew and said he would simply rate that at service only) so they automatically doubled our billing to 1600 per month with no notice or exceptions. Thankfully we did not let them take our ACH info for automatic payments so we are still disputing the bill but they are not willing to budge at all. They've grown to a point that they can charge what they want and don't care about customer service. I'm in the car business so negative reviews are not something I'm a fan of, but in this case I feel completely railroaded and hope other small dealers don't get the same. Get AutoCheck instead!
Carfax is not exactly a great place to shop as the customer needs to inspect the car thoroughly. We found multiple problems (bad hinges on trunk, mirror discolored, only one electronic key, etc) that were not disclosed to us.
When I went to trade in my vehicle, the Carfax report came back showing that my car had been in a major roll-over accident. This accident never occurred. Somehow my vehicle's VIN number had been used for a report which was most likely fraudulent. I tried to contact Carfax but was unable to have this issue addressed. This fraudulent report, corroborated by Carfax, severely impacted the value of my vehicle negatively. Carfax is just as responsible as the originators of the fraud for validating it and making it unimpeachable. How can a company take value away from your property without verifying it? In my opinion, Carfax is scamming the automotive industry, perpetuating fraud, and damaging consumer rights.
I purchased a Carfax report for a vehicle that I ended up buying. The Carfax report had stated that the vehicle was "normal" branding while it was a "salvage" when I wanted to register it. They opened up an investigation that took more than 2 weeks and accepted that their report was not correct (and in fact misleading). They did not bother to pay any compensations other than the cost of the report. Totally lost my trust in Carfax products and will never refer to them again.
