Sumr - Your CarFax ought to be a mile long. Know the answer to this ?e23nk1 said:Hi everyone...I am looking at used 2010 & 2011 GMC Terrains...was wondering if the CarFax reports will show the service history of the Engine and Stall issues...or does the Carfax just show general maint & inspection.
Thx for the help
You only had it in the service shop once? At least that's what the link is telling me.wrusprod said:If anyone has carfax already, and wants to see what comes up..here is link to my 2011 Terrain,thats still on the used car lot ( at least its showing as still there)
Service records would have to be obtained from the dealership that performed the service. However, ANY chevy dealership can view the WARRANTY record of that vehicle. I'm not 100% sure, but I would think that even if the vehicle changes owners, the same warranty record would be attached to that VIN number, right? So, technically, you should be able to request a copy of the WARRANTY CLAIM HISTORY. That will show any work that had been done and covered by the warranty.e23nk1 said:wow...very interesting...thx for the info...so there is really no credibility in the CarFax reports...the dealers really have seemed to push them on me.
I have looked at 3 different used Terrains and every CarFax report had been clean..only showed basic info...oil change and state safty inspection.
I will try to ask for the service records although I dont believe the dealers that currently have the vehicles are the ones where they were originally bought and serviced....does that matter?
Register it on Facebook ! It sucks that some poor sole will be driving your car in a couple of weeks - well, suck to be them, and good for you.Sumr616 said:I'd be curious what my CarFax says, haha.
Is there some way to put some kind of "previous owner comment" on it?
At the dealer half a dozen times in one year...never was fixed..just gave up and traded it in..JediSkipdogg said:You only had it in the service shop once? At least that's what the link is telling me.
I find Carfax is hit and miss. If you read online you will see the problems with Carfax and how it can inaccurately report items on cars. And if you want to get them taken off, well, good luck. I think fixing your credit history is easier than fixing Carfax. Supposedly thousands of vehicles from the Hurricane Katrina flooding are not reporting their flooded history on Carfax when they were under 10 feet of water for weeks. I personally say ask for the dealership history record if it's still under warranty.
