What is an Car History Check report?
There is another option for consumers who want a vehicle history report. An Car History Check report examines a vehicle’s history based on its VIN and assigns a score to the vehicle so it can be compared to others. Highlights of an Car History Check report include:
✔️Vehicle Usage Check
✔️Common faults of each model
✔️Service and Maintenance Records
What is a VIN?
VIN stands for “vehicle identification number,” and it is the unique code assigned by manufacturers for a specific motor vehicle. Also known as a serial number, a VIN is the automotive equivalent of a social security number; no two vehicles in operation have the same VIN.
Where Can I Locate a Car’s VIN?
The VIN is most commonly located on the dashboard on the driver’s side of the vehicle. It can be viewed by standing outside the car and looking on the corner of the dashboard where it meets the windshield. If the VIN cannot be found there, it can be found by opening the driver’s side door and looking on the door jamb.
Why is it Important to Look Up VIN Numbers?
If you’re considering buying a used car, it’s important to check the vehicle’s VIN to determine if a used car is suspect or not. If the advertised VIN number does not match up with the make and model of the advertised vehicle, it can indicate a potential scam. A standard VIN check can also reveal important vehicle history information including if it has been stolen.
How Do I Run a VIN Lookup to Get Car History Check Report?
The VIN check report can be accessed via the Car History Check app, available for Android, which allows users to instantly view the comprehensive report after scanning the vehicle’s VIN barcode. (If the VIN located on the windshield does not have a barcode, check the VIN located inside the driver’s side door.)
