Carfax, Experian Add Clunker VINs to Databases

posted in: Online Around the Net | 0

The industry’s two top vehicle history reporting companies have added to their databases vehicle identification numbers of the 700,000 trade-ins meant to be scrapped under the government’s cash for clunkers program.

This is a great call.  I’m slightly surprised that a list can be generated accurately and passed on.   But all are 17 digit VINs that can properly navigate the zeros and ones of the computer world so dealer beware.  You are not going to be able to repack that Maserati Biturbo with a Chevy and sell it on to some sucker.  Oh right, maybe you will.  Because you had to be a sucker to buy a Biturbo in the first place.
