Another car which we were looking to buy was from a co-worker who also said his vehicle (GX460) was clean and never in an accident. I ran the car fax and did an auto check which both came clean and was about to agree to purchase until a nurse told me the real history of the SUV. Turned out it was rear ended and most of the back had to be replaced. I brought this up once I was aware and his response was that "maybe it was my wife, I dont know...but the car fax is clean so you can sell it later" - WTF???
So his wife majorly crashed it, got it repaired over weeks if not months, all without him knowing? Wow. Most dudes can tell if there is a new microscopic paint scrape from the wife or kids.
Co-worker, huh? So you have to run into the dude once in a while?
It's free because Carfax wants you to enter information on your vehicle, which in turn gives them more data for the reports they sell. This might be a good maintenance reminder for some people, but unless they are giving me a discount on Carfax reports, I'm not giving them my information.
you are merely giving them more info for their database by buying into this. This is SERVICE information for you to look at only. Not accident or other info. IMO, don't register and give them this free info.
Recently my friend had a disaster exp with carfax went to auction bought a car with clean carfax after month or two was not comfortable and decided to sell to a dealer by taking hit of 2k and it turned the car had airbags deployed and major affected with some flooding and all. Eventually he sold to the dealer by taking 4k hit. Now dealer has again listed the car for sell and once again carfax is showing clean through dealer (:..whom to believe carfax or dealer??
carfax has no access to insurance records/accident records
