Many car dealer websites and used car classified sites, like craigslist have second hand cars listed for sale. But how can you tell whether or not the used car price on the specific second hand car you're interested in is reasonable? Or, more importantly, how can you ascertain the repair history of the vehicle, prior to scheduling a time to view the vehicle with the owner or sales person at the car dealership?
Typically dealer websites and auto classified sites, like craigslist, do not provide an easy way for you to gather history information on pre owned cars. In the first case, the car dealer would prefer that you do not have this information. If a consumer knew the used car price listed by the dealer was high compared to the market value of the vehicle, or that the used car had a history of transmission problems, they most likely would scratch the vehicle off their list of possible automobile to purchase.
Craigslist, on the other hand, has nothing to gain or loss by posting this information. Each of the used car classifieds listed on LotPro.com, show the number of vehicle history report records as reported by AutoCheck®.
Second Hand Car Reports may Contain Records Such as:
Number of Previous OwnersNumber of AccidentsThe Last Know Mileage on the Used CarWhether or Not the Vehicle was ever used as a Rental VehicleThe Market Value of the Vehicle
Whether you're shopping for pre owned cars on our website, a car dealers website, or craigslist, it's a good idea to subscribe to an online vehicle history reporting service so you can evaluate the condition of several vehicles before you waste time viewing the vehicle in person. The two most popular services are Carfax® and AutoCheck® by Experian®. We use and recommend the AutoCheck service since they offer unlimited reports for one low price.
