It seems that carfax has raised the price of their little reports to cover that stupid Car Fox's salary. I need a report so I'll see if someone can help me out here first. Here is the VIN: 1g6dc67a570179546.

Thanks in advance!

Timmy, Carfax shows SALVAGE TITLE and Air bag deployed. Owner 2 had an accident. Owner 3 had total loss. Might want to keep looking.

If you don't have a lot of extra money to throw around you have no business owning a Cadillac.

If you dont have a lot of extra money to throw around, you wont have your cadillac for long.

I know--there's a whole faction here that likes to sit back and make smart ass remarks without trying to help in the least. i consider it their problem.

On several other forums I belong to, it's against the rules to give Car Fax info--results in thread being locked.

It's like asking, "Hey, I don't want to pay for an oil change, would anyone like to come over and change my oil for me ... and don't for get to bring the oil and filter too."

It's really not like that at all unless that oil and filter are going to vanish if not used in the next couple weeks. Lots of people purchase five or ten Carfax reports but only use a few. Then the unused ones expire and they get nothing. Carfax got paid for the report so why do people get all pissy about it? I've used my extra reports for people on forums I'm on before.

No harm in asking. No crime in urging self-reliance. If a seller won't provide one, what else are they hiding?

Before you decide to pop for that CarFax report you might want to read this article from Consumer affairs.
http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2006/10/carfax_facts.html

On the personal side I had an accident several years ago in my Mercury Grand Marquis, collision damage to the left front, left drivers door and left passenger door to the tune of more than $5000 bucks. When I picked up the car from the shop I said something about it being on carfax now. The manager, who was with me as I checked out the body shop's work assured me that they don't report anything to carfax. Not a fly by night repair facility either, my insurance company,USAA, told me to take it there. Go from there.

here's another one worth reading http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/cars/used-cars/reliability/reality-check-how-useful-are-used-car-history-reports/overview/
seems carfax can be hit or miss, doesn't hurt to check it if a dealer has it available. if nothing else basic salvage/total loss info can be checked for free at nicb.org
