Vehicle Buyback Protection

 

How Does AutoCheck Buyback Protection Work?

 

AutoCheck Buyback Protection is available at no extra cost to anyone who purchases a vehicle history report from AutoCheck on a qualifying vehicle. Note that you can register for Buyback Protection only after you have purchased your vehicle. To take advantage of Buyback Protection, follow these steps:

  1. Purchase an AutoCheck Unlimited vehicle history report or AutoCheck Single vehicle history report.
  2. Run vehicle history reports on AutoCheck and review each vehicle's history as you shop for a used car,
  3. Check the right side of the vehicle history report, underneath the AutoCheck Score when you run your report. You will find an alert letting you know whether or not the vehicle is eligible for Buyback Protection. Note that only certain vehicles are eligible for Buyback Protection. (See the AutoCheck Buyback terms and conditions).
  4. Come back to AutoCheck.com to register your vehicle for Buyback Protection after you have purchased your vehicle.
Yes, I have purchased my used vehicle and I am ready to register for Buyback Protection!

AutoCheck vehicle history reports with Buyback Protection provides coverage for what you paid for the vehicle and will refund your purchase price (up to 110% of the NADAguides.com published retail value, PLUS up to $500 in aftermarket accessories at no extra cost) if you find a covered title defect that also meets the Buyback Protection terms and conditions.

What makes Buyback Protection different?

See how Buyback Protection is different from the promises made by other vehicle history report "guarantees":

Coverage/Features Other "Guarantees" AutoCheck Buyback Protection

Anything on your car that was not part of the car when it was manufactured will not be covered.
Yes.
Up to $500 of items such as warranties and installed accessories are covered.
