The service itself is great in terms of information-collection. However...The first problem is that upon purchasing the service, the carfax website AUTOMATICALLY chooses for you the most expensive package BY DEFAULT. There are three to choose ...

Terrible accuracy and timing of information

by , Aug 9, 2012 Rated a Helpful Review
Carfax provided a report that showed no accident. I purchased the car to only later trade it in and find it had been in an accident 1.25 years PRIOR to my purchase. Can you say delay? Unreliable? I now have a car that is worth $4000 less than otherwise ...

Erroneous

A company that only communicates via email and gets their information from third party sources and charges you a fee to get them...that's CarFax. I am sitting with a car that is listed as having a mileage inconsistency and does not. It has ...

I feel cheated by CARFAX

I bought the set of 5 reports while I was searching for a new car. I finally chose a car based on its extremely clean CARFAX. I paid the previous owner the amount that he wanted, since I thought I was getting a very good deal - clean title, low mileage, ...

We intially located the car in a newspaper ad and, even though the ad stated that the owner was forced to sell due to illness, we could not believe the asking price of  only $10,000.00 or best offer. I requested the car's VIN from the ...

Believe what is proven NOT what a piece of paper tells you.

by , Aug 15, 2009 Rated a Helpful Review
Carfax is only as good as the info it can get. It is completely impossible to make an informed buying decision based on a Carfax report. Carfax will list a vehicle as being in an "accident" when in fact a shopping cart rolled away and put a minor ...
