Research Before You Buy
Buying a vehicle―especially a pre-owned vehicle―requires research. Besides price, there are other pieces of information to check out. Is the odometer reading correct? Has the vehicle ever suffered damage, or been registered in a state that would make it susceptible to flood damage? What about other uses―was the vehicle once a police car or taxi?
Thanks to recent advances in modern technology, a car buyer can access helpful information about the car-buying process via the Internet.
Online Vehicle History Reports
A Vehicle History Report (VHR) provides buyers with significant information about a pre-owned vehicle. AutoCheck allows you to access the VHR of a particular vehicle using its vehicle identification number (VIN). AutoCheck provides a sample report to help you learn to read VHRs, and even offer various packages for both individuals and dealers.
When you access a VHR, you get information about a vehicle's title, odometer, previous damage, and other information when available. Even better, within a few clicks, you'll have your report in front of you to read and analyze.
While there's no doubt a VHR provides beneficial information, there are other types of time-saving Web reports out there for car buyers, too.
