What is a CarFax Report - and Why You Should Read It

A CarFax Canada report is a great tool for used car vehicle shoppers to get a view into a used car's history! Carfax Canada was founded to increase transparency in the used car industry, and is trusted by all of the major vehicle manufacturers, dealerships, auto groups, and more.

A CarFax report provides the following:

  • Prior accidents/damage and their assessed values
  • Registration country of vehicle
  • Stolen status
  • US history
  • Recall information
  • Service history (where they service, and what they serviced)
  • Vehicle import history
