Carfax Offers New Year Resolutions for Used Car Buying

CENTREVILLE, Va., Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumers are expected to purchase well over 40 million used cars in 2013. While many used cars are safe and reliable, some with problems like odometer fraud, non-working airbags and flood damage are sold to unsuspecting buyers. Now is the time for used car buyers to start protecting themselves when they're out shopping in the New Year.


Carfax offers these five resolutions to help consumers avoid common scams and buy used cars with more confidence:

  • I will spend wisely. Consider manufacturer-backed Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) cars, which offer many new car benefits at used car prices. Be wary of cars with 'too good to be true' prices.
  • I will check documents. A common rip-off involves unpaid liens, so make sure the seller provides the title along with other important paperwork prior to sale. Service records help buyers evaluate a car's condition, while the registration and an insurance card can prove ownership.
  • I will ask the seller questions. Have the seller verify details about things like the car's origin, the reason(s) for selling it and any problems they've experienced with the car. Don't get pressured by someone wanting a quick sale.
  • I will get a Carfax Report. All the used car information in a Carfax Vehicle History Report, such as registration details, open recalls, mileage history and other used car buying tips can help you avoid costly scams and safety issues. Visit to find dealers near you that provide free Carfax Reports.
  • I will consult an expert. The trained eye of a trusted mechanic or body shop technician, combined with a Carfax Report, can help identify potential problems.

"As the demand for used cars continues to rise, so do the opportunities for scam artists to prey on unsuspecting victims," said Larry Gamache, communications director at Carfax. "Sticking to these resolutions this year and in the years ahead can help protect you and your investment. Shop smart and buy confident."
