    Carfax www.carfax.com is a website that will give you a history of a used
    vehicle from it's introduction to the road until the day it arrives at your
    dealer.

    A single vehicle report will cost you $19.99 and unlimited usage will cost
    you $24.99.

    It's worth it, I'm just broke as hell and I asked for someones generosity
    and received it.

    FWIW I would *never* buy another used vehicle without running it through
    carfax first.

    I ALWAYS pull a report on any used vehicle I am about to purchase and
    provide one to a prospective buyer of any of my own vehicles.

    However - I think Carfax is highly overrated. The biggest problem is
    that what does and doesn't have to be reported (by insurance/auto
    repair facilities) varies from one state to another, so here in
    llinois, I've never found anything on the reports other than title
    changes and emission test milestones. It's good to track mileage
    history, but doesn't help you figure out if the car's been in any major
    accidents or that type of thing.

    It's useful when buying a used car, but is only a small piece of the
    research I would recommend anyone should do before comitting. I think
    a full inspection by someone familiar with cars (whether it's your best
    friend, or your local mechanic) is a must - including putting the car
    on a lift.

    Cheers,
    Nirav
