Where To Find Used Car Service History and Records
We want to know the story behind your used car, truck or SUV to provide you with the best value on the market – and that includes the service history and records. Maybe you bought your used car from a private seller and never knew or maybe you lost track of your own repairs – how do you find that information? There are a few quick and easy ways for you to find the information you need – whether you are buying or selling a used car.
1. Contact the Car Manufacturer
Sometimes it is best to just go to the source and contact the vehicle manufacturer. With the vehicle VIN Number – located on the dashboard by the windshield, inside the driver’s side door and under the hood – you can get detailed information on the service history of your vehicle from most auto manufacturers, especially if service was performed by OEM technicians.
2. Run a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report
CARFAX® Vehicle History Reports can be a valuable tool in your toolkit when it is time to buy or sell a used car. Online services like CARFAX®, Bumper and AutoCheck® can use the vehicle VIN Number to find and compile service records. Vehicle history reports from these providers will most often include a fee. CARFAX® Vehicle History Reports will start at $39.99.
