What is a Vehicle History Report?

A Vehicle History Report is the easiest way to research the history of a vehicle. It gathers all of a vehicle's insurance* and DMV records into one place. At a glance, you can tell if there are major accidents*, odometer problems, flood damage issues or if the vehicle is a lemon.

As you conduct your research for your next used vehicle purchase, you should consider obtaining one of these reports on any vehicle you are interested in. Each company that provides these reports offers a free records or VIN check feature (these features advise you on how many records there might be for a particular vehicle, not what those records actually represent). You will need to purchase the actual vehicle history report to obtain further information or clarification**.

With this additional information in hand, you can make a more informed buying decision to help you negotiate the best deal possible.
