Lude got a Carfax!

I've been really curious about my car's history. There are dings and bits of damage and some shady repairs that have always made me wonder what kind of life my 3rd gen has had. I finally buckled down and bought a Carfax history report.

To tell you the truth I was quite bored with it. I was expecting it to have been driven off a cliff several times in it's life, but turns out that car has done pretty well with no accidents. It's also failed california smog five times, the first being in 1993. I'm the 4th owner, and just various other bits.

This gives me more motivation to build this car, at least now I know I'm not going to be dumping money into a lemon.

Take a look for yourselves!

I'm sorry! I was debating on whether to buy it or not, I decided not to, well... honestly. I forgot that there are other 3rd genners in existence.

Re: Lude got a Carfax!

Just keep in mind that car fax reports are not always accurate. It's entirely possible that your car could have been in a wreck but it wasn't reported. Mine had been rear-ended, and there was rocker panel damage on the driver's side from a previous owner hitting a large rock. But the car fax report is clean.

Re: Lude got a Carfax!

^^^what he said^^^ "REPORTED" is the key term. most people can't handle the repair costs on a totaled car. So the insurance company reports the repair. Same goes for extreme repairs after failing inspections.

People buy "clear title" wrecks all the time. It's the amount and quality of work.

Re: Lude got a Carfax!

Yeah, it was peace of mine for me. I always had it in the back of my mind that something bad happened to the car in the past.

Re: Lude got a Carfax!

Not accurate is an understatement, not only do insurance company's not always report to carfax but only about 1/3 of body shops nation wide report to carfax. carfax is a joke and in no way gives a reliable picture of your car's past. Next time ask for the carFOX, it's a better investment.
