Finding Vehicle History Reports For Used Cars in Toronto

Before purchasing a used car in Toronto, a consumer may want to locate a vehicle history report (also known as a vehicle title search) that can tell him more detail about the vehicle itself. The vehicle history report can offer information about the previous use of the vehicle, where it was registered, the odometer information and if it was subject to any major repairs as a result of accidents or natural disasters. While many car dealers offer a report of this type to potential customers, they may not, so it’s then up to you to purchase one on your own if you are serious about buying. Here are some resources to help you find a vehicle report for used cars in Toronto.

One of the easiest ways to obtain a report is by visiting an online service like “Carfax” that charges a nominal fee for this report. All that’s required is the vehicle identification number (VIN) and a small secure credit card payment. The service then pulls information about the used car from government and dealer databases and compiles it into an easy-to-read format. You can review the report and then take it with you to the dealership in Toronto to discuss with them if you find any conflicting information about the vehicle you are considering.

Or you can discreetly obtain the VIN by taking the car for a short test drive, then jotting down the long alpha-numeric code that’s generally found on an engraved plaque on the car’s front dash. If the vehicle is missing a VIN or it has been altered or concealed, then that will be a big red flag for you to not move forward with a purchase on that used car. It is illegal in both the US and Canada to deface a VIN for the purpose of concealing information about the car from consumers.

If you are working with a reputable used car reseller, you may be able to get a free vehicle history report from them before you agree to buy the used car. It’s as easy as asking the salesperson or his manager for one. They will more than likely also go over the report with you and answer any questions and address any concerns you may have. If you ask and they are hesitant to provide a history on the used car, something that they should have readily available, that will be another bad sign that they are not someone you can trust.

Buying a used car in Toronto doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. Having the tools and information needed is a good way to reduce this stress and make buying your used car a good experience for all concerned. Getting a used vehicle history report ahead of time is a useful tool you can take advantage of to know more about the car you are considering and save yourself considerable money and headaches as a consumer.
