Exclamation Carfax or VIN check, member with unlimited carfax?

Hi I was hoping someone on here could help me out, im looking at a 06 speed6. I know its from the states, but i would like a carfax report but spending all my money on the car. The UVIN does not tell you information on the branding in other jurisdictions, some please help! The VIN is JM1GG12L161104068. Thanks for your help!

I use instavin and I use carfax. Instavin is pretty much limited to title and registration transfers shown on NMVTIS which will give you title branding like salvage flood etc. it also provides accident data from police reports and not from insurance databases. they add fluff by giving you vehicle specs and offer (on some cars) a window sticker for an additional fee. NVMTIS is not in use in HI ME and AL and Washington DC so if the car is from there you will not get records on it if it spent time in any of those places.

Carfax shows more data from more sources. It shows all the NMVTIS data and, service and accident data IF the vehicle was serviced at a reporting garage or if it was in an accident reported to an insurance company. in addition, Carfax uses a polling technology. I have seen data on a car "disappear from one look to the next. The reason is some service operations (like Goodyear which operates multiple chains) switch computer systems and do not migrate all data sets.

When i buy auction cars i screen them on Instavin and weed out the worst. i will then run the top contenders through carfax to find the best report for the dollar. I do not have unlimited access to either service. My sense is that if you cant come up with the coin for Carfax how in the **** are you going to maintain the vehicle once you get it? And, why try to get a "free" carfax on someone else's dime!?? INVEST!
