Explains the contributing and weighting factors that determine a vehicle's AutoCheck Score and what dealers, lenders, consumers and other users can expect to gain.

Description

Vehicle history reports have become an integral component of the decision-making process for purchasing a used vehicle. There is a very good reason for this: unlike new vehicles, which are virtually identical when they roll off the factory line, each used vehicle is unique. Much of this uniqueness has to do with the vehicle's history - its age, accident or repossession status, odometer history, etc. A vehicle history report is a useful tool for reassuring shoppers that the vehicle they like will be a good purchase, instilling confidence to help close the sale.
