What's Your Car Worth?
CARFAX History-Based Value: Because a car's history affects its value.

Changing the Way You Get Used Car Values
Vehicle history is an important factor in determining a car’s value. In addition to taking a vehicle’s year, make, model, mileage, location and condition into consideration, CARFAX History-Based Value is powered by vehicle-specific data that’s unique to CARFAX and tied directly to each car through its vehicle identification number (VIN).
Our VIN-specific value report is free, and examines the number of accidents, number of owners and the service history of each vehicle. Other factors, such as how the car was used (personal, fleet, rental or commercial use) help us provide an exact value. The result is a clear picture of what your car is worth, or how much you should pay.
You may pay less for a car with an accident, or more for a car without one. Only CARFAX gives you the VIN-specific price for every used car based on its history. Instead of providing you with a suggested retail value, CARFAX can tell you what a specific car, with a specific VIN, is worth.
The value of used vehicles varies with mileage, usage and condition and should be used as an estimate. The CARFAX History-Based Value is based only on information supplied to CARFAX and available as of 10/20/2016 at 3:34 PM EST. Other information that may affect the value may not have been reported to CARFAX. To learn more, please click here.
