To run a Vehicle History report you first will need to locate your Vehicle Identification number or VIN for short. Your VIN can be found in multiple locations permanently stamped on the car itself (under the hood at the front of the engine block, drivers side interior dash, inside the drivers side door jam). Your VIN can also be found on the car's documentation (which includes but is not limited to the owners manual, VIN check or vehicle history report, insurance documents, police reports, vehicle title, registration card).
Once you have located your VIN you may now request a full vehicle history report by simply typing it into the vincheckup.com VIN search box.
There are about 10,966,425 registered vehicles in the state of New York in 2014 and that number has been steadily increasing. According to the state-owned Department of Vehicles report that same year 299,452 car crashes occurred of which, 1,026 were classified as serious collisions resulting in fatalities and 160,497 were non-fatal accidents where the vehicle could have still sustained extensive damages. The truth of the matter is that majority of the vehicles involved in these accidents were actually repaired and were sold or listed for sale by various dealers and private parties.
Now we are not saying that all cars involved in previous accidents are bad/lemons. There are a lot of factors that must be accounted for and carefully analyzed before determining if the vehicle is fit for sale or purchase. Among the most important of which is if the vehicle was involved in a previous accident and how severe was the accident. You NEVER want to purchase anything that was damaged so severely that the vehicle had to be cut and put together using panels from a downer vehicle or as the industry experts refer to as "clipped cars". As a rule of thumb, you want to stay away from vehicles with branded titles, such as Salvage and Rebuilt as they typically fall under severely damaged category. Another very important factor to consider when the vehicle was involved in a minor accident or accidents is if it required extensive frame repair and if it was repaired properly. Unfortunately, there are a lot of less than reputable body shops in New York that are known for doing shoddy work that just does not withstand the test of time. So, these are some of the things you should keep in mind when considering purchasing a vehicle from the state of New York.
If you are intent on purchasing a pre-owned vehicle in the state of New York a Vehicle History Report is your most valuable tool and it will help you make an informed buying decision. Save your valuable time and money and don't buy a lemon.
