i agree, wholeheartedly. as a matter of fact, someone should offer an independent service for Carfax. i am the ultimate cynic. when you go to a dealer, he gives you a printed copy of a Carfax. who is to say it has not been doctored. i do not think it is too often that the buyer accesses the site himself.And Carfaxes, whether in the US....or any future DR equivalent....are just one of many tools that buyers should use when purchasing a used vehicle.
