AutoCheck gets data from auto auctions -- companies that act as vehicle clearinghouses and help you get the vehicle you want by providing retail dealers with cars and trucks that sell best at their store. A vehicle that has been through one or more auctions simply is being moved from one market to another, and does not reflect the overall condition of the vehicle.
The AutoCheck Score is a numerical rating that allows you to quickly and easily evaluate all of the vehicle's history data in one convenient score. The AutoCheck Score helps you assess a vehicle’s predicted reliability and compare it to similar cars in its class. The information helps to:
- Compare vehicles of similar class and age based on a scale of 1 to 100
- Predict the reliability that your car will be on the road in 5 years
- Understand a vehicle’s reliability as it pertains to vehicle age, number of owners, accidents and other factors
- Lower the risk of buying a vehicle with undetected problems
