I was recently looking for a car for our college student. I found a car for sale that looked really great. The woman who was selling it was telling me how her husband took such great care of it, and it was a 2006 with really low miles and very few mechanical issues.
I was so glad I did a CARFAX on the car, I found out that the car was actually a Salvage 2004 vehicle. The car indeed looked great, but the woman had her details a bit confused.
I was glad for CARFAX and the details I was able to acquire in order to make a smart car buying decision. It was definitely worth the small fee to avert a car buying blunder!
