The CARFAX Reports mobile app lets you check a vehicle’s history by running a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ on the spot. The apps are available FREE for iPhones in the Apple App Store & for Android devices on Google Play. Once you sign up for an account with CARFAX at carfax.com, you can easily run a CARFAX Report anytime, anywhere.
There are three ways to run CARFAX Reports using the CARFAX app:
- Scan – Use your smartphone’s camera to scan the vehicle identification number (VIN) barcode. If the car has a barcode, this is the easiest way to get a CARFAX Report.
- License plate search – Type in the vehicle’s license plate information. This is convenient when buying a car from a private seller.
- VIN check – Manually type in the 17-digit VIN. VINs are located in the driver’s side doorjamb or on the dashboard of any vehicle.
The CARFAX Reports mobile app stores all the CARFAX Reports you’ve purchased in the ‘My Reports’ section. At any time you can go to the ‘My Reports’ section and review your CARFAX Reports for up to 60 days.
CARFAX Vehicle History Reports can include accident information reported to CARFAX, the odometer reading, the number of previous owners and more to help you find a great used car. Before buying any used car, we recommend that you get a mechanic’s inspection, a CARFAX Vehicle History Report and take a test drive.
Several other mobile apps offer free CARFAX Reports from used car dealers to used car shoppers including Cars.com & Autotrader.com.
