If you are shopping for a used car, make sure to do your homework. Thanks to the resources available on the Internet, you can spend a few hours online and make a truly informed decision. VMR International's Web site includes information on both American and Canadian used car prices for models dating back to 1943! You can also find car maintenance tips, car reviews, crash test ratings, information on lemon laws by state, and service bulletins.
While VMR itself does not offer car history reports, it does link to Carfax, a reputable online vehicle history reporting company. You can purchase a single vehicle history report or subscribe for a fixed block of time and have unlimited access to the Carfax database throughout your car shopping process.
*Some car history report services claim to offer free vehicle history reports, however, most only offer a fraction of the information available on the car and require payment to gain access to the full report.
