If the dealer offsite their body work. Find out who they use and give the bodyshop a call. I had heard that if the car isn't title yet and isn't a insurance claim. The history could be mask.
I believe that the ONLY way something makes it onto a Carfax report is by an insurance company paying out a claim on that vehicle. Meaning if you drive your car head-on into a wall, do say, $10,000.00 worth of damage and pay to have it fixed out of pocket than there is nothing reported through insurance so no Carfax. I know for a fact in PA anyway that NO bodyshop reports damaged vehicles to Carfax or anyone else.daptech said:I don't have any manners .....so I would probably call
Hudson & tell them the reason they don't have any
records showing the bumper was painted is that they
are trying to conceal the fact that the truck had some
damage during shipping or at the dealer.
Also, I read that outfits such as Carfax are not a
reliable source of info because there is no law
requiring shops to report work or damage. It is
all voluntary participation. Does anyone know
if this is true?
