    Would anyone be willing to run a carfax for me?

    If its allowed of course for those with unlimited carfax access, the vin is 1G6KD54Y31U128871. I did a quick search to see what it said and it listed 20 documentations, so I am just really really curious what could be on there, as the car has been nothing but trouble since I bought it just a month ago lol. I would really appreciate your help if you could do it.

    Re: Would anyone be willing to run a carfax for me?

    CARFAX is a voluntary information service, so the only things you'll find are registrations, auction activity, emissions tests, and maybe some owner input. (Hey, Honey.....I smashed the Eldorado and Joe's kid hammered the dents out. Tell CARFAX, will you ???)

    Take your car's VIN to a GM dealer on a quiet Tuesday mid-afternoon. Ask a service writer to pull the GM VIS for the car. This will list all the GM work done - recalls, service (some), and warranty. Have you learned to pull your own Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) from the car's built-in system ? Read the sticky posts at the top of this main page, Northstar Performance, and Cadillac Technical Tips. Read the entire Cadillac Technical Archive up in the black bar ^^^.

    One CarFax report will cost you $30, but you can spend another $10 and get unlimited reports to read after you buy any car in the future. I woulda done it before I bought the car, but that's just me.....

    I saw a show last week about carfax,they are not that great,they do not research the cars ,they rely on people reporting exceptions to them,like if you wrecked your car and told carfax about it,then they would know.

    Unfortunately they are all correct and I'll go one step further; even if you take it to a dealer they might not have information from a non-dealer repair shop; there is no way to tell even with a dealer vin check and a carfax check. Take it to a dealer and let him go through it with a fine tooth comb.
