Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.

Nice little truck, but transmission malfunctioned at 145,000 miles. Got another put in from junk yard. I could tell that one wasnt going to last very long either, so I sold it. Due to the ridiculous price of these old trucks, I got my money back. Weak 4 cylinder engine and weak transmission...

I really like Ford Rangers but I dont know when they went to 134A Freon from the earlier Freon which has become very difficult to find and even very grossly expensive if needed. I believe the change over happened some time in the late 1990s but didnt know exactly what model year. That was one of the main questions I wanted clarification on from the seller and since that and the possibility of rust in the 1997 model due to very few photos was most likely why they never answered my questions on those topics. I bought a different later model Ranger with the 134A A/C unit which was a one owner 85K mile 18 year old vehicle which met my expectations since it was basically a garage queen trade in from a non-smoking retired person.

Bare Bones Every Day Driver. — I purchased this Ford Ranger specifically for good fuel economy, reliability and I always need a truck. It's a four cylinder, five-speed stick, no frills commuter/hauler. It replaced my 1988 Ford Ranger that I purchased new and drove for 25 years! No power options at all (inc. steering), no A/C, wind-up windows, rubber mats with a simple vinyl bench seat. My 1988 Ranger was the most reliable, low-maintenance vehicle I've ever owned which failed me just once in 25 years(starter). The '88 was just about identical to the '97 in that ist also had zero options and had the same drive train. I look forward to driving and working this Ranger for many years to come.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Exactly the Ranger I wanted. Great fuel economy. Fantastic reliability.

Cons: Absolutely no options.................... or power!

Small — It's very slow in comparison to a chevy Silverado and uses up the same amount of gas, it has a low profile so it's convenient to work with loading and unloading and not having to reach up with all of my tools.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: small, convenient, truck bed

Cons: Tranny problems, OBD Codes, space in the back-seat, gas

Best Little Truck Ever Built, Payload, Towing, Sporty Feeling And Fuel Efficient At Around 25mpg — I bought this truck new, has nearly 300,000 miles now. Been a great truck. I beat it to death and it begs for more. May not be the fastest but it is fun to drive and always gets the job done. Love the body style or I never would have boguht it. Braking is greatly improved with the explorer axle I put in it. Interior could use a little more leg room

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Most reliable machine ever built

Reliable Ranger — Performance-Does that even exist? Build quality-good did put a timing belt in it, but at 220000 miles that's understandable. Appearance-rather bla but not ugly like the previous gen. Cost of ownership-low mileage is good for a pickup and other than the timing belt all i had to do was change the oil. Fun factor-uh when I do the engine swap it should be fun but the four cylinder isn't good for any thing other than gas mileage.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: gets good gas milage very reliable
