My husband and I were looking for a 2002 Jeep Liberty. We found one for a decent price, but the owner didn’t mention any previous damage or maintenance issues. We didn’t even think about looking at a CARFAX until my cousin mentioned it. We wanted to be sure we were purchasing a car in good condition, so we paid for the report. It showed that the car had been in two different accidents, one of which caused severe damage to the motor. CARFAX helped us avoid making a terrible deal.
