Re: Anyone have a carfax?

Do not use CarFax!! These guys suck at getting accurate information about cars. Try using the AutoCheck that Equifax offers. Or just have a good mechanic/car-crazy homeboy look at the car for you. While I love computers and the things they can do for us, nothing beats your own 5 senses when buying a car!

Re: Anyone have a carfax?

I wanted it mainly to see if it had been in any accidents, been in for any major repairs, etc.

Stuff you cant tell by looking at it/driving.

Re: Anyone have a carfax?

If it has been in a major accident, you will be able to tell with just your eyes and a quick drive. Any major repairs will result in bolts with missing paint or obvious turning marks on them. Also, cars with repaired damage will often pull, run badly/poorly, etc... Like I said in the previous post, take a mechanically inclined person with you and they will be able to spot it. Also, I dont know if MO DMV can do this, but most state DMVs will have searchable title records that you can access with that VIN. Any major accident will have to be reported and will be listed in the title history.

If you are having any major concerns about this car or dont feel right, DONT BUY IT. WALK AWAY!!

Re: Anyone have a carfax?

I am "mechanically inclined" haha.

Engine purrs like a kitten, no ticking, or noise at all for that matter haha

Car drives straight, I got to test drive it in the rain, and it handled superbly, even on the highway.

Only thing it needs is new brake pads/rotors

Like I said before... I'm not sure if I want to be a rider. If I ever do decide to do it, I will be starting small! lol
