Carfax

For a fee, you can check the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of any car to learn more about its background. However, Consumer Action recommends that you do not rely solely on any car history database (Carfax, Autocheck, NMVTIS, or any other) to tell you whether a vehicle has previously been damaged or has any other problems. Unscrupulous dealers often use "clean" reports from these databases to sell cars that they know have previously been wrecked or flooded. Car experts agree that the key to avoiding a car with problems is having the car inspected by an independent shop for body/mechanical problems before you buy it.
