Looking to buy a used car? Who isn’t, with what brand new cars cost these days. Here are some smart used car buying tips and even smarter reasons to ReverseVINCheck.

1. Mechanics don’t have x-ray vision therefore, can’t always see or know everything.

It is always a good idea to take a used car to a mechanic before you purchase it. Even the best mechanic is not always going to be able to tell you everything that might be wrong with the car. Cars can be salvaged, flooded, rebuilt and junked but even a mechanic might not be able to tell.

What better way to find out what can potentially be wrong with the used car you are considering to purchase than to check it with a ReverseVINcheck title history report.

2. Can’t change the condition of a used car.

Used cars come exactly as they are, unlike brand new cars, a used car has a history. Of course, you want a car that is reliable and will last you for years to come but how can you insure that the used car you are intending to purchase will deliver on your expectations and be a good value for your hard earned money. Sure, you might take it for a test drive but the only true way to make a informed buying decision is by looking into the cars history.

It is important to remember that once you drive off with your newly purchased pre owned car that it is YOURs and in many cases so are the pre-existing problems that come with it. This is the reason why we urge anyone in the market for a used car to check the cars history prior to making the decision to buy a possible lemon and waste money on costly repairs. By using ReverseVINcheck service you will be able to put your mind at ease with our comprehensive vehicle history check .

3. What dealerships and private car owners won’t tell you.

Did someone you know or a friend buy a car from a dealership or a private owner and a week later the car broke down? Wouldn’t you rather know the details of the vehicles past issues as they may lead to future problems?

The best way to do this is by going to ReverseVINcheck and ordering a full car history report and uncover potential problems such as:

  • Fire damage
  • Flood damage
  • Reported lemon vehicle
  • Frame/unibody damage
  • Reconstructed vehicle
  • Accident/Salvage History
  • Illegal Odometer Rollback
  • And more…

This way you will know exactly what you are buying.

4. Protect yourself from VIN cloning!

What is VIN cloning and how can you protect yourself from it? VIN cloning is where criminals take the vehicle identification number (VIN) from a wrecked vehicle and create a new VIN plate for a stolen vehicle of the same make, model, year and color. By using ReverseVINcheck title you can protect yourself from this growing crime.
