A Vehicle History Report in the US is an official document that provides important information about the past of a used car.
It contains the title records of the automobile made by the Department of Motor Vehicles from each state, indicating the accident and insurance records.
The History Report is useful for customers buying a used car and willing to find out its real value and safety features. This report also informs about how many owners were in possession of the car through time, in addition to other technical details which are decoded from the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), such as year, make, model, and odometer history. The simplest way of getting a Vehicle history report is to check the car's VIN code on Autocheck.com or Carfax.com.
A potential buyer is always looking for a good deal with no hidden facts in a car's history, such as severe accidents, odometer rolled back or technical defects.
