Is it a private seller or dealer? I got lucky with the cars I've been looking at this year being part of the free carfax dealer network, even a small random dealer was part of it.

Try replacing your VIN in this link: http://www.carfax.com/VehicleHistory...&partner=CDM_U

Another partner code is AAN_0

You guys realize that Car Fax gets its info mostly from public record ? If the car was involved in an accident and the police were not involved then clean Car Fax . I have inspected so many cars for both dealers and private owners that had poorly repaired collision damage but the car had a clean report . My advise . If you are looking at buying a used car take it for a test drive ad stop at a body shop and have someone inspect it . I don't charge for this service and most reputable shops wont either

^^^^^What he said.

We have a local used car dealer who only sells high end vehicles that have been totaled and pieced back together (horribly). In VA a car can be totaled in another state and then put back together and sold with a clean title after passing an inspection. Not all states are the same. I test drove an F150 from him and the arm rest on the driver's door was hitting the seat. I took the truck to my local Ford dealer for an inspection and they told me to run away from that used car lot as fast as I could.
