You can discover if the car has a junk, flood, branded title or salvage title, or if it's ever been used as part of a commercial fleet. This provides insight into how the vehicle was used (and possibly abused), which helps to shed light on what you can expect from it in the future. After all, even if there's no structural damage, it's wise to learn about any wear and tear that may have taken its toll on the vehicle's many components.
Premium VIN retrieves information from the NMVTIS and the DMV agencies to obtain mileage history. This information lets you proceed with confidence, knowing that the odometer hasn't been fraudulently tampered with.
Lemons and Buybacks
Premium VIN reports also show lemon titles and manufacturer buybacks, helping you to avoid vehicles that have been problematic in the past. They also show where the vehicle was originally registered and used, giving you a better idea of the kind of conditions it has been exposed to during its life.
Transfers of Ownership
PremiumVIN reports also detail any transfers of ownership. After all, if the vehicle has had many owners, there is probably a reason. If the vehicle has a lien against it, your Premium VIN report will acknowledge it so you don't accidentally purchase property that technically doesn't belong to the seller due to outstanding debt. Premium VIN also lets you know if the vehicle is or has been stolen.
Inspections and Repairs
You can also find information on when and where a car was inspected, including whether it passed or failed safety and emissions inspections. You can also learn about any maintenance records, repairs, or other service histories. If the vehicle has a consistent history of needing repairs, it may be prudent to look elsewhere. Premium VIN also lets you know if a vehicle has been recalled so you can make sure that any repairs or exchanges have already been completed.
Additionally, Premium VIN is guaranteed to have information about severe accidents and offers the largest publicly accessible database of smaller accident reports that may not be reported elsewhere. That said, smaller accidents are not guaranteed to show up on Premium VIN reports. Some accidents simply are not reported, and others may be reported to agencies that don't provide Premium VIN or the relevant agencies with data.
