Default Carfax?

I got bored and did that little free carfax report thing and it said there are 18 reports on my ranger. Now i'm kind of curious what they are. I know the truck was wrecked, but not to the point of it being a salvage title, but the other 16-17 reports are whats puzzling me.

So the question is, do you guys (and gals) think it is worth paying the 35 bucks for a carfax report?

Nope, not for 16 records. My truck had 47, all of which were service records, registration renewals, and a repo. Not really worth it if you know the truck inside and out.

Holy, that was a quick response, lol

I didn't realize that service records also were included in that. No offense, but yours having 47 made me feel better about mine 18. Thanks!

lol, I had just logged in when I saw the thread.

Yea, all of mine were just oil changes, tire rotations/balance, that sort of stuff. Nothin on there was anything major.

No problem though.

You can get your money back from those things. I did one on my truck expecting to see if it was in a wreck or not. It wasn't and I contacted them and they refunded the $ no questions asked. Just tell them that you didn't find what you were looking for.

My expedition has like 50 or so, all service records and registration renewel/transfer

CarFax screwed us.

Our car had 6 major repairs all under warranty. We cant get anyone to take the car in on a trade. Once they run the carfax they Laugh at us and say it aint gonna work.
