FYI, A Carfax report isn't worth much. I bought a 1999 Suburban about 3 yrs ago. Had a friend run a report. It came clean. Later I found out it had both front fenders replaced and everything from the fan forward. I'm pretty sure the repairs were done at a FWB GM Dealer. Carfax is only as good as the info put in. There is no law requiring it.

I agree with sosmarine. A Carfax in not worth a lot. I was a LEO who specialized in auto theft. I cannot tell you how many cars I recovered and had the "owner" chase me down his driveway as I towed the vehicle to the impound lot, waving the Carfax report in his hand to show it was not stolen.

I did a carfax on my own truck before I sold it several years ago. The truck had been in 3 wrecks, ALL of them not my fault. Insurance paid for big repairs 3 separate times. The carfax came back CLEAN!!!

Well, if a report comes back with negative reports it is certainly useful. But I see where it can also be misleading in the other direction.

Appreciate all the input. 2002 performance car, very low mileage, but seller (out of state) discussed multiple owners. I'd like to see available details for myself. Got to look at all the data. Also appreciate a Forum member helping out.
