    [​IMG] Not so sure about carfax. I was hit by a drunk driver in his work vehicle. The police arrested him and his buddies because they found pot and measurement scales in their car. (that's another story) When I got my car fixed, at a dealership (well known large one in the Kansas City area) I asked about carfax. I told them I was just getting into the car market for a new car and wondered what would show-up on carfax about this $3000 repair. He said "nothing. We don't turn-in any info to carfax and other reporting agencies unless it is totalled or nearly totalled."

    All I wanted to know was if my trade-in value would be reflective of vehicle history. Apparently not......

    Buyer BEWARE!

    Not sure, but does a car have to be reported totaled to have negative info show up on carfax? That's what I thought.

    I ran some cars through there as well recently. I did get one car come up as having possible odometer fraud. They showed the licensing history and from one reporting to the next the odometer went down by 4000 miles. Yikes!

    I have an appointment with a saab technician to go thru the car on Monday, and I will have my brother go thru it this weekend to check for any possible boddy problems. While carfax may not be perfect, it is certainly better than not having checked.
