Want a FREE vehicle history report?

Carfax just eliminated their unlimited report offering. Below is an email they sent us when inquiring about the issue.

Carfax is the best known name for history reporting in the industry, their marketing and advertising campaign eclipses all others, however, in the last few years Carfax has become so powerful that multiple states have filed anti-trust lawsuits.

Carfax’s newest stunt will alienate many retail customers who used it’s unlimited – by license plate – reports. This leaves consumers with 3 very unattractive options where the cheapest report is $16.50.
