F.A.Q. VinLeaks vehicle history reports

What is a VinLeaks Vehicle History Report?

The VinLeaks Vehicle History Report is a simplified report that compiles all important details concerning used cars in the United States. The report contains many categories of records taken from billions of files, which include:

  • Service car records: It will serve you well to purchase well-maintained second hand cars. The VinLeaks Vehicle History Report also includes records of car servicing that will enable buyers to make an informed decision.
  • Car ownership: Buyers often want to know the car’s usage history. Our VinLeaks Vehicle History Report has information on the car’s past ownership, which will also let you know if it was ever converted into a taxi or rental car.
  • Vehicle mileage check: Odometer manipulation is an extremely common fraud seen in the used car market. We make sure buyers are not misled by odometer rollbacks with our mileage checks.
  • Vehicle accident check: It can cause problems and end up costing you a lot if the used car you bought is accidental. We perform accident checks on the vehicle to make sure that there haven’t been any serious issues in the past such as total loss.
  • Salvage Title: Vehicles that were stolen or damaged in an accident, fire or flood are not roadworthy and have a salvage title. Our VinLeaks Car History Report enables you to avoid salvage vehicles and save you from future expenses.
  • Car registration check: It can be useful to know the car’s history, such as its previous location before making the purchase. These records are also included in our VinLeaks Vehicle History Report.
  • Stolen car: Unfortunately, the reality is that stolen cars from the US do end up in Europe. It is necessary to avoid buying a stolen vehicle to prevent potential legal issues.
  • Car recalls: The manufacturer’s guarantee on recall protection is usually not given on American import cars. The new buyer must therefore pay for any repairs of open recalls on the car. The recalls are sometimes required for repairs to manufacturing faults that could be dangerous. If there are open car recalls on your car, VinLeaks Vehicle History Report will identify them.
  • Airbag deployment: Serious accidents often cause airbag deployment. This information will also be available to US car buyers in the VinLeaks Vehicle History Report.
  • Check on the pictures database: Images can go a long way in helping you make a better decision. In addition to textual records, we also include car photos in our report.

Vehicle Identification Number

VIN stands for Vehicle Identification Number. All cars that were built from 1981 onwards have this unique identifier. The number is a combination of 17 digits and letters. It acts as a vehicle fingerprint that is different for every car. The VIN does not include the letters I, O and Q.
The VIN can be placed on different areas of the vehicle, but the dashboard is where it is most commonly seen and is visible from the windshield. Other parts where it can be found include the hood, engine, the driver’s door interior or the left side of the car’s exterior. Service records, car registrations, police reports and insurance policies usually contain the VIN for the relevant vehicle.

Our wide information database is used to create vehicle reports, and it includes all vehicles identified by their unique VIN. Before 1981, the 17-digit VIN was not used to standardize car manufactures.
A VinLeaks Car History Report serves to assist buyers and sellers in conducting a transparent purchase and make a better decision regarding used cars. Data accuracy is not guaranteed or certifiable, therefore the report will probably hold little value as evidence.
Check the VIN to make sure the correct letters and numbers have been entered. If you still don’t find any records of the car, it could possibly have been a new car that was exported directly or was never in the United States. Another reason could be that the car was manufactured before 1981 and therefore does not have a vehicle identification number, making it impossible to generate a VinLeaks Car History Report.
