How can a consumer find out the history of a used vehicle prior to purchase?

The consumer can obtain an AutoCheck report and a CarFax report. Both require a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) and a small fee. The consumer can also obtain a DMV title history through NMVTIS. The best way for a consumer to know for sure about the vehicle’s prior history is for the consumer to have the vehicle inspected by a licensed body shop expert.
