We specialize in VIN numbers. A Vehicle
Identification Number encodes specific information about a vehicle,
including country of manufacture, manufacturer, model, body style
and even engine and other information.
Checking the VIN
number on a car before buying it can let you know if it is a
salvaged vehicle, or in commons terms, a lemon.
Say you just bought a "as is" used car from a local dealership.
The salesman tells you it's a great car with no prior problems.
You buy it and soon it starts to leak red fluid and the transmission
grinds. You notice paint is pealing on the right side of the car.
You also notice the hood's color is slightly different color than
other parts of the car. Guess what? - you just became the lucky
owner of either a lemon or a salvage vehicle! Did you perform a
used car history review first?
