I haven’t bought a pre-owned car without first checking the CARFAX Report in years. Several years ago it saved my wife and I from a really bad deal. We found a used Honda CR-V at a dealership that was right in our price range, so we took it for a test drive. We liked it, and were in the process of talking numbers with the dealership when we asked to see the CARFAX Report. The CARFAX revealed the car had frame damage, and we ended up passing on the car.
