Tips on getting a used car report

Verify critical information associated with a car. Attributes such as: year, make, model, body style, engine type and country of manufacture are verified. Cover all the bases. Check for reported damage such as, fire damage, hail damage, grey market, lien, lemon or manufacturer buyback, odometer discrepancy, rebuilt/rebuildable, salvage/junk, water damage.

Cross check information collected from independent sources, including NHTSA crash test car, failed emission/safety inspection, frame damage, insurance loss, major damage incident, odometer discrepancy from auction data, salvage auction and theft. This report section compares all mileage readings from the state or other independent sources. It also flags any odometer rollback or rollover.
