If you have been searched through the car listings on recycler.com in the last couple of days, you may have noticed new black badges on the bottom of some search results.
We are excited to announce we have a new partner in Carfax!
We’ve all seen the commercials, but now you can see Carfax integrated directly on recycler.com vehicle ads.
Carfax is the most trusted name in the business when it comes to vehicle history reports. It’s used by millions of car buyers and sellers every year. There is no other company that provides as much information about all used cars from the last 30+ years, so that a potential buyer can have the assurance and confidence to know the true history of a vehicle before making the decision to buy.
From Carfax’s web site:
Every CARFAX Report contains information that can impact a consumer’s decision about a used vehicle. Some types of information that a CARFAX Report may include are:
- Title information, including salvaged or junked titles
- Flood damage history
- Total loss accident history
- Odometer readings
- Lemon history
- Number of owners
- Accident indicators, such as airbag deployments
- State emissions inspection results
- Service records
- Vehicle use (taxi, rental, lease, etc.)
With the addition of Carfax, our used car buyers will now be able to get extra assurance and information about any car where the VIN number has been listed in the ad. That means car buyers can view the Carfax for any of the ads from the over 700 car dealerships across the nation that are a part of the Recycler Automotive Network.
If a Carfax report has been paid for and generated, the Carfax logo will appear directly on the ad in the search results. All you have to do is hover your mouse cursor over the logo to display an in-screen popup that will display the Carfax highlights.
You can also view the Carfax highlights in a new tab on the ad details page.
And, if you are really interested in a vehicle that hasn’t had a Carfax report generated, but a valid VIN is available on the ad, you will have the option to click over to carfax.com and purchase the report yourself.
With the addition of Carfax as a recycler.com, we are confident that the user experience will be enhanced as you are able to have even MORE faith in the vehicles we have listed.
