I happened to buy a certified pre-owned car from a Toyota dealer and the CARFAX told me exactly when the car was purchased and registered originally. I drove the car home 730 miles and went directly to my hometown dealership because I realized I had 4 days left on the original 36-month warranty. I received warranty coverage on a couple of items that saved me over $500 if I had to pay for these items out-of-pocket. The dealer told me these items would not have been covered by the certified pre-owned warranty.
Thank you CARFAX!
