Before you purchase a used car, getting a vehicle history report is strongly advised. While it may look like a deal from the outside, there could be mechanical issues hidden from plain sight that will cost you more later on.
Every vehicle has a unique vehicle identification number (VIN) that the DMV uses to maintain a VIN number history. With a car history report, you have a unique chance to see exactly what lies under the hood.
A motor vehicle history report contains several different kinds of information. Car title data, including who owns the vehicle and if there are any financial institutions holding a current lien on the car. Odometer information, accident reports and a car registration record are included in the DMV vehicle history report.

Check the VIN Before Buying a Car
When purchasing a used vehicle, you can’t always judge a book by its cover. While the vehicle can look as good as the day the seller purchased it, there could be information they aren’t providing that can have a significant impact on the durability, safety, and overall value of the used car that could cost you significantly more after purchase. Issues such as reversing the odometer, not disclosing previous repairs, or hiding accidents that may have damaged the frame of the vehicle are all too common when buying used cars. The best way to protect yourself and ensure you have the information you need to make an informed purchase is to purchase a vehicle history (VIN) report from instaVIN®.
