VIN Number Search Testimonials
I'm a low wage worker on a limited budget and I needed a car. My
friend recommended ordering a VIN check search before I was to go
out and buy a car. I was a little wary about spending money on a
VIN lookup since I don't have much.
I decided not to order a report and bought the car anyways. After
a month it was smoking and running like a junker. I then paid for
a vin report to see if I got suckered. I found the car was involved
with a major accident and was listed as totaled. I was shocked and
angry since the dealer said it was a great running car. I ended
up paying $700 for repairs and the car still does not run great.
I wish I had ordered the VIN number
check. I caution everyone from buying from dealers and to get
a VIN check before any car purchase.

I recently used a VIN Number Search for the first time. I was very
impressed at how smoothly it all went and how hassle-free it was
for me. One out of the two vehicles I checked was a lemon. When
I finally decided on the used car, I felt good that it was the right
decision. So far my new truck has performed great. I can't imagine
what I would be going through had I bought a lemon.

I recently sold my 2000 Nissan Pathfinder. I had already ordered
a VIN number search on the car a while back. I decided to advertise
the VIN report with the vehicle. Guess what? I had 15 calls in 4
days. The great thing is that just about everyone who called said
they were mostly interested because of the extra reliability of
the VIN number report. Thanks to this valuable service, I was easily
able to sell my SUV fast. I could not believe how many people appreciated
the fact that I had a VIN history
search to back up my claims the vehicle was in great shape.

My 1998 Pontiac Firebird had been making some really, really weird
noises and running kind of rough after being in traffic for too
long. I was panicking about what might be wrong and how much it
was going to cost me. I decided to sell it before it got any worse
and let some other sucker deal with it. Problem is every person
who asked about it wanted the VIN number. At first I did not know
why because I did not know about VIN number searches. It turns out
the vehicle was totaled at one point. I finally had to sell it for
a lot less. I wish I knew about this VIN reporting service before
I bought it.
