Deal Details

Last Edited by widgit July 11, 2014 at 08:37 PM
Today I received an email from CarFax saying I was selected to beta test their new mycarfax service for free. It shows the full service history on my '07 Accord and it reminds me of when to change the oil, rotate the tires, and other maintenance.

This is the page I signed up free from:

https://www.mycarfax.com/lp1303t1...th_qrc_002

Not sure how long this is available for but wanted to share

More info:

Stay organized with all new features just released from CARFAX.
Become a beta tester now and you can receive important updates about your car's unique service history.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

That's been free for a long time. It's good for them because it improves the accuracy of the reports they sell, and doesn't give you access to any information about other cars you may want to look into. Can't you keep your own records??

Not sure how it improves the accuracy of the reports they sell. I could put in I changed my oil on my car for years, when I really didn't, and if they add that on the report that seems like a huge lawsuit waiting to happen.

Considering it's free and in beta, and the regular carfax is $40, it showed the service history on my car for no cost.

Just plug in any VIN # and you have the info. What are you talking about Willis?

No, it only will show your car's history. You can't get unlimited reports on other cars.

They report information given to them. If you, as owner, misrepresent they've done nothing wrong.

Yes, it shows the service history on your car and nothing else. What good is that? You knew it already. I signed up for this years ago and it's an incomplete history. What good is that? This is not a regular Carfax. Y

And it doesn't give you full access to other VIN reports.

This is NOT a hot deal!

If you ever decide to sell your car then they use the information collected from myCARFAX.
This has been free since it came out and I doubt that will change. I have been a member for over a year.

It sends you an email when you need an oil change, tire rotation, or something like that.

It's good for people who take good care of their car but doesn't really contribute anything you can't do yourself with a pen and paper.

Keep in mind that anything you include on your account they use when others look up your vehicle history if you decide to sell later on.

Thanks, just signed up. Beats using pen & paper to keep track of car maintenance. My dad used to do that. What a pain

Uh, no. I just put in my neighbors truck because I was curious. I could put in fake service on their car or anyone else's. There's no way carfax would be able to verify that. If they put it on the report without verifying, my neighbor would sue them (and kick my ass when he found out).

Shows you the reliability of their reports! Mine's far from what it should be and yes, I guess you could plug in your neighor's truck with knowing only the registration plate nuimbers.

Did you guys also know - you can type in any car license plate number with the state name and get its carfax records for free.
