My oldest son totaled his car in March of this year, and needed to find a new one as quickly as possible. He looked on Craigslist and found one he liked, but since we didn’t know anything about the seller we got a CARFAX Report, just in case. The CARFAX was clean and the car ran well, so he bought it. At the end of July I totaled my car, and needed a replacement for it quickly. I remembered how great my first CARFAX experience was, so I purchased the 5 Report package. After test driving a few different cars and running CARFAX Reports on each, I started to lose hope. Finally, I found the perfect car. The seller was honest with me about everything, and everything he told me was verified on the CARFAX Report. I am so grateful to CARFAX for helping me find the right car. It’s a small cost compared to the cost of a bad car.
My husband found a beautiful 2009 Chevy 2500 HD at an auction and wanted to bid. The truck had a lot of great features, and even had new tires! We started it, but auction rules would not let us test drive it. We bought the unlimited CARFAX and ran the VIN number to find the truck had 5 previous owners and a total insurance loss from a wreck in a state that did not issue salvage titles. Someone else bought the truck, and a big headache, for $22,350. Thank you CARFAX for saving us from a disastrous mistake!
CARFAX helped us avoid buying a lemon. We had made plans to drive 3 hours to get my dream car, and at the last minute I purchased a CARFAX, just to be sure. I discovered that the car had been in several accidents, had more owners than we were told, and had 80,000 more miles than the odometer showed. Obviously something wasn’t quite right, so we didn’t end up making that trip. We dodged a bullet, thanks to CARFAX.
When my Mom asked me to help her buy a car, I immediately purchased the unlimited CARFAX package. We found an amazing deal on a late model Camry with low miles from a private owner that looked almost too good to be true. The CARFAX Report showed a long, up-to-date history of excellent maintenance on the vehicle, and my Mom couldn’t be happier. She’s never had such a nice car, and I am secure in knowing that my mother is safe and comfortable in a reliable vehicle.
I was looking for a Mercedes SLK Roadster, and right before I was going to check one out, I ran a CARFAX Report and discovered there were a lot of hidden things the owner claimed he had no idea about. A few days later I found another one online, and asked the seller to send me the VIN number so I could check it out before I drove out to look at it. The CARFAX was perfectly clean! One owner, 1800 miles per year, no accidents or any other black marks–it was perfect! CARFAX saved me from spending time on a counterfeit car and assured me that the claim of ultra-low mileage was genuine.
When I decided to start looking for a used car, I was patient in my search for the one that was just right. After a short while I finally found it. It had low miles, it was clean, it appeared to be well kept, and the price was right. I didn’t want to miss out, so I had to act fast. CARFAX was so quick and easy to use right from my tablet! I could pull up the car’s report without leaving the scene. I was able to make my decision with much more confidence, and now that I’ve owned the car for a few months, I couldn’t be happier!
