My friend and Oklahoma attorney Louis M. Green has an interesting post on his blog about the accuracy of Carfax reports. He titles his post The Trouble With Carfax. Here are the opening paragraphs. Check it out.
Most people purchasing used cars rely solely on Carfax to let them know whether or not the vehicle they are buying has been wrecked or has other serious problems. That is understandable because Carfax has created the perception that if there is a problem with a vehicle, it’ll be on a Carfax report. Car dealers, eager to make sales, are more than happy to perpetuate that perception.
As an attorney who handles automobile fraud cases, I have seen many instances where my clients were shown a clean Carfax for a vehicle, and it turned out to be wrecked anyway. How does that happen?
