Frequently Asked Questions

A Vehicle History Report is a reliable report for consumers and sellers that describes the history and title behind a vehicle. A Vehicle History Reports is a trusted report that gives you the information you need to determine whether the car you want to purchase is in good shape and priced fairly.

Carsforsale.com Vehicle History Reports (VHRs) has two proven sources of data. The National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) and over 20 years of seller records from Carsforsale.com. NMVTIS was founded in 1996 to protect consumers from auto theft and fraud as an amendment to the 1992 Anti-Car Theft Act. The NMVTIS system contains information on vehicles that have titles in the U.S. In addition to NMVTIS reporting, Carsforsale.com goes the extra mile to include photos, pricing, dealership details, and the date a vehicle was posted in our robust Vehicle History Reports.

96% of all vehicles on the road in the US today are reported on under the NMVTIS system in the following categories: car, truck, bus, motorcycle, recreational vehicle, or truck tractors. In some cases, commercial vehicles and vehicles older than 1981 may not have access to Vehicle History Reports.

The information listed on a Carsforsale.com Vehicle History Report includes over 70 title disclosures including: title history, title issue date, the latest odometer reading, theft history (if any), the brand assigned to a vehicle and the date it was applied, and salvage history. This information gives you a good picture of what condition the car is in before you buy it.

As of January 2010, dealerships in every state must remain NMVTIS compliant by sharing and updating the history of vehicles on their lot. Vehicle History Reports are updated in several different ways. Some reports are updated in “real-time,” as title transactions happen, while others send updates less frequently. You can expect a Vehicle History Report to be updated as soon as 24 hours or within a few days after a title transaction occurs.

In order to track a vehicle’s history, you need a VIN. A VIN, short for vehicle identification number, identifies your vehicle from other vehicles manufactured in the U.S. Different year models may have shorter or longer VINs than current year models. If you have a 1981 or newer vehicle, you can expect your VIN to have 17 numbers.

Your VIN is located one of two places: inside the driver’s side door, where the door connects to your car, or on the left, lower side of your dashboard which can be seen from the outside of your windshield. Find this number and input it into Carsforsale.com’s Vehicle History Report database to learn more about your vehicle’s history.

At Carsforsale.com, we believe that safety and value are two things you shouldn’t have to pay for. We understand that peace of mind shouldn’t have to come with a price tag. Carsforsale.com’s Vehicle History Reports give you the information you need to make a safe and informed decision about your next vehicle without emptying your wallet.
