Another video about bad car dealers and carfax in Atlanta. Our favorite carfax rep is here as well.





Avoid the following dealer. Atlanta used car center both locations, Atlanta Auto Leasing, Alpha Carz, Ga Best Car deals, Ga Best Motors and few others. You need to Run Autocheck before buying these cars. Dont depend on Carfax to uncover frame damages history. These guys buy junk. If you ran an Autocheck on any vehicle they got and it came back clean that just means its not frame uni body damage. It doesn't mean it hadn't been in an accident or flood. There is always a reason why a dealer can get a car a lot cheaper than the rest. If a deal is too good to be true it probably is.

Hopefully a full disclosure law is passed in GA soon.

God Bless

I was one of the guys who got burned by carfax. Bought a Jeep with clean Carfax. Hated the car and tried to sell it on ebay, well ebay told me my description does not match car history. I was like WTF...So I went into Auto check since my buddy recommended it. And found out Jeep has frame damage. I did get lucky however, some dealer accepted it as a trade because they ran a carfax on it as well

DEFINITELY USE AUTOCHECK

Looks like ebay's new free history report program is through Autocheck. does anyone know if the purchased Autocheck report differs from the one on ebay?

If you guys want a heavily discounted vehicle history report, just post the car for sale on ebay, get a free report then cancel the listing. haha

The video was very helpful. I am looking to buy a G35 very soon and decided to sign up for "Autocheck" I have unlimited access for a short time if anyone would like a G35 checked out. Message me with the VIN and your email and I will try and get back to you. The forum has helped me out a lot and I am just trying to give a little back.

They will only buy the car back if you can prove that a DMV reported it. No where in there buy back guarantee do they say they will buy it back if it was reported by a police department or auction, which is where they get there info. So the only way they will ever buy it back is if YOU PROVE it was reported by a DMV.

What an incredibly informative thread AND video! No more Carfax for me! Is the offer to run some VINs still available. I've got a few cars I'm considering, and the dealer offered cleaned Carfaxes on all of them. After this video, I am extremely skeptical.

Thanks,
Michael

Wow, this is incredible. Thank you for providing this! Not to mention that guy that worked for Carfax in the video was a complete tool.

AutoCheck almost always includes information from more sources that Carfax does. One of the main differences is that AutoCheck includes auction information that Carfax does not. Neither will always be 100% accurate as in some cases they use different sources for their information, and these sources my not always volunteer its information in a timely manner. Some accidents can literally take years to find their way onto one of these reports. While other incidents may never be reported at all.

Keep in mind that one of your local mechanics wouldn't mind taking some money from you to do a pre-purchase inspecting of a used for you. Who better to look for signs of previous repair work than the guys that do those repairs for a living, am I right?

+1000000

ALWAYS take it to a shop (preferrably of the same manufacturer as the car) and have them do a full inspection. Unless, of course, you are mechanically gifted or bring along a buddy who is.

$50-$100 in peace of mind is worth thousands later...
