Re: [Help] Interpretation of a Carfax - should I purchase this v

We can't tell you to buy it or not - there is more to it then reading a CarFax. Though - there is nothing on the car fax copied that points to anything - it is obvious that the CarFax is reporting normal inspection/maintenance with one owner.

Now you need to do more leg work on the condition of the car - ie: pay $100 and get it inspected by a mechanic you trust and go from there.

Get an AutoCheck. They are more relable than Carfax

Thanks for the feedback. I actually pulled a Carfax that showed a vehicle had 2 moderate accidents in a 12 month period of time and it didnt show up on AutoCheck. I don't understand why it didn't show up.

Neither are perfect - they do depend on what is reported. That is why it is imperative to get the car inspected by a good mechanic.

WTF is that? I am pretty sure there is no NY DMV in GA.

Given that it was a lease, I suspect that the DMV issued the title to the leasing company in Atlanta, GA.

Just a guess.

What I would be worried about buying a used car from Long Island now, is where was the car during Sandy.

+1. Good advice. Just watch any judge show on tv and you will find out why.
