VIN check



  • Where can I track down my car using the vin number. Google lists all kinds of sites that extol free vin lookup but they all lie. They all want money.

    If you mean locating an address where your old car lives, you aren't going to do that unless you are very well connected to Law Enforcement.

    If you mean a CARFAX report, sometimes people here will help you with that. But CARFAX is only good for cars new enough to have 17 VIN numbers/letters.

    However do not presume that the car hasn't been in accidents. Be sure to have it checked over.

    Clean Carfax sweet. Thanks.

    I'll be sure to check it over for any exterior signs of an accident.

    For things related to service history on your Benz, you'd have to ask the dealer for those records. Those aren't public information and we'd have no way to access them. They are proprietary.


  • I will appreciate if some one could get History for my Infinity JNKCV51E53M005602.
    Thanks in anticipation.

    Is this car worth 3500$ with newer vtec engine (110K on the engine)? Is it sketchy to buy?

    It's high mileage and it's had a hard life, but you can't buy much for $3500. Keep in mind the old adage "whatever got you into a car cheap when you buy it, will haunt you when you go to sell it".

    I wouldn't buy it at that price. You can buy less tortured ones for that money and probably with fewer miles. It sure ain't no "deal".


  • Could you please provide any information regarding this vin #
    Thank you!

    Hi, so my friend was helping me to see what will the VIN 1HGEM22913L019985 reveal about the car. I run the carfax myself, but after late 2006, the records of the oil changes are not regular. The oil changes are recorded every 40 000 miles. What I figured about the car when checking it, was that right doors do not have the vin and have not very well repaired rust at the bottom of the doors. Also, 2-3 other spots have little rust, and there is a bowl-size dent on the roof.
    4500$ for this car?
    Please help, buying tomorrow.
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 44,408
    Well it probably has 125K miles on it by now with at best an "average" condition, so $4500 seems high by about $500 to $1000.
