I don't know if anyone here is aware that carfax has a system where you can see service and repair history of any car. The site is www.mycarfax.com and works with VIN or tag number. Site is free to use

Nice...I drove my 2008 DTS and looked it over, but depended on the salesman to be honest as I didn't car fax it. He said the car came from Cincinnati and according to carfax it did. It runs great and I'm pleased with it, but it's nice to know he was truthful....thanks.

Thanks, markmnj. Signed up, worked first time. The original Staten Island/New Jersey Cadillac dealership entered everything - I have the original owner's invoices. My local Cadillac dealership is obviously not a CARFAX reporting agency, so I brought the records up to date. The truck, on the other hand, is complete in all respects.

Pretty decent to get a free subscription.

just remember that everything carfax has -
is reported to them on a voluntary basis -

so - if a bodyshop doesn't report a $10,000 collision repair -
carfax will report the car as being accident free -

Yup, I had the radiator changed as well as the water pump at a dealer and the Carfax only showed "Cooling System Checked"

I find it nifty. Some info is better than none.

Mine obviously doesn't show anything more than registrations & inspections after 2009 because I mainly worked on it myself. And I'm not going to enter all that there... personal record is enough.

The site is now blocking attempts to log in. "Cannot establish secure connection.....". We'll see if they fix it .......

You can get this as a smartphone app too. I use it to record service items that I perform myself and it gets updated automatically when I have certain service shops do various things like oil changes and just recently cut 2 key blanks and program a new fob.
