What's on a CARFAX Report and how can it help me?

A CARFAX Vehicle History Report contains important information that can impact your decision about a used vehicle. Each CARFAX Report checks for information reported to CARFAX from thousands of sources and can include:

Vehicle registration
Title information, including salvaged or junked titles
Odometer readings
Lemon history
Total loss information
Stolen and recovery information
Structural damage
Accident indicators, such as airbag deployment
Service and repair information
Vehicle usage (taxi, rental, lease, etc.)
Recall information

What can the CARFAX Vehicle History Report show you?

Not all information is reported to CARFAX. The CARFAX Vehicle History Report should be used along with a pre-purchase vehicle inspection and thorough test drive.
