Why Run a Vehicle Title Search When Buying or Selling a Vehicle?

History of the Vehicle

A title search can give you detailed information about the history of the vehicle in question. While most people are honest about the condition of their vehicle, there are those who are more than happy to leave out negative yet important information about the automobile. If the car has had multiple owners, the current owner may not have all the facts regarding the history of their vehicle. Maybe you bought the car at auction and need to know its complete history. Whatever the reason, it’s always a good idea to do your due diligence and conduct thorough research on any car that ends up on your sales lot. 

What’s Included in a Title Search

Not only will you learn the true history of a vehicle, such as any accidents it’s been involved in or how often it’s been bought and sold, you’ll also receive information about the following:

  • Number of previous owners
  • Recalls related to the car
  • Any previous flood damage
  • Airbag deployment history
  • Maintenance records
  • Issues or changes with the odometer
  • History of vandalism or theft
  • Any liens against the vehicle
