When purchasing a used car, it’s always a good idea to obtain a vehicle history report from Carfax.com. This type of report allows potential buyers to view information about the vehicle’s past. This information is gathered from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), as well as from other sources that will give you the most accurate and current information. Carfax.com has a guarantee that the information on these reports is correct.

When you receive a report from Carfax.com that states a vehicle has no major issues, but you later discover it does, Carfax.com will buy the car back from you. This guarantee is only valid for information that was reported to the DMV and not damage that was never officially reported.

Also, not all Carfax.com reports come with a guarantee. Vehicles that have major damage listed on a report don’t usually have the guarantee. This means that you should verify the buyback guarantee on a specific vehicle when you order a Carfax.com report. Until you have this information, you might want to hold off on purchasing the vehicle. This is a good way to protect yourself when purchasing a used vehicle.
