Re: Banged up trade-in
Carfax has been sued for having incorrect information---how would that happen if insurance companies report their claims in?
I do know about salvaged cars from floods being "washed" through states that do not require insurance reporting then sold again in another state so no salvage record sticks to the vehicle. Obviously, insurance companies paid the title holder and entered a claim but somehow that "was lost."
I just suspect there is a lot of hanky panky in the used car business and many dealers can shuffle cars around faster than a street hustler playing 3 card monty.
