    Default Carfax question

    Hey guys, I'm buying a used truck from a dealer, and was given a Carfax report from the dealer. I recall that Carproof used to be better than Carfax, because it would sometimes contain repairs etc. that Carfax didn't report. However, in searching, it seems that Carproof was purchased by Carfax.

    So, my question is, is Carfax the best way to get the history of a vehicle, or is there a better service? Does anyone have access to Carfax if I were to provide them with the VIN?

    Thanks!

    Thanks! The link you sent is to purchase a Carfax report for $7, right? The dealer has provided that already on their website (actually, they give a link to the carfax site, where I can access it). I imagine it's the same report I'd get by paying, right?

    Yes its a carfax for $7.00 and it should be the same report you'd get from the dealer if theyre giving you a carfax.
