When CarFax Gets It Wrong – and They Do Quite Often!

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 19, 2013

He who has the biggest advertising budget wins! CarFax has convinced the American Public that it cannot survive without them. Nobody would think of buying a used car of significant value (over $2000) without spending $39.99 for a CarFax Vehicle History Report. Take a look at this awesome article on CarFax that we found in the Florida Independent Auto Dealers Association Magazine. This is the type of "industry insider" information that DamageMAX shares with consumers to help you make educated decisions.

You Can't Hide a Wreck from CarFax

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, January 24, 2013

I love it when people advertise their vehicle for sale "NO CARFAX HISTORY" or "CLEAN CARFAX REPORT" and they are selling a recently wrecked vehicle.

They will brandish a CARFAX REPORT on the vehicle and circle the Vehicle Identification Number and happily send you a copy via email. Indeed the CARFAX report will show that there are no accidents and no stigma history which would dramatically reduce resale value in the future.

NOTE: This is evidence for how CarFax Negatively impacts the value of a damaged vehicle – we said this before…

There is a slight problem however…

CarFax procures data from law enforcement, tow and other governmental agencies and there is a lag in time.


"Customer A" skids off road and hits a tree - a single vehicle accident. A tow is required to recover the vehicle. Police arrived on the scene and dispatched the recovery vehicle. Customer A decides to not report the accident to his insurance company and declares CLEAN CarFax. CarFax pulls data on vehicle tow from participating police municipality several weeks later and reports MAJOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT HISTORY – vehicle towed from scene.

In this example, the customer misrepresented the vehicle "knowingly" and they told you about it which takes them off the hook if you buy their vehicle in either damaged or repaired form. When the CarFax report comes through, don't be surprised - "CarFax Knows"!
