not sure what's going on there, but it appears it is a free way to pull a carfax report, well, autocheck report.

If it doesn't work, make sure that you've clicked the "agree to tos".

Nice. I wonder how it compares to CarFax. I pulled up a few of my past vehicles, most were accurate but one was missing an incident.

When I sold my last yukon, a guy showed up with a car fax report that he paid for. It included a windshield replacement, but failed to list a $3600 claim when I was rear ended.

Not all insurance companies or bodyshops report to car fax. Personally I think it's a gimmick.

Now if you can get it done for free, what's the harm

wtf. I used it last week. I'm guessing this site was piggybacking a commercial carfax account and somebody found out..

Maybe I'm doing something wrong. But when I click that link or even type it into a different browser it takes me to some YouTube link.

It is a gimmick. It's a completely voluntary service.

I had one ran on my old Samurai just for fun. It had been rolled, totalled, and the previous owner was beheaded in the accident. Carfax came back clean.
