Operated by the credit report company Experian, AutoCheck is an online service that allows you to enter the VIN of any vehicle and retrieve a report giving its ownership history. This is crucial if you are buying a used car; you want to know if it's ever reported stolen or salvaged, flood-damaged, rebuilt, a rental or fleet vehicle, potentially had its odometer rolled back, or a former taxi or police car. The database contains 16 billion records on more than 320 million vehicles compiled by Experian from state DMVs, auto auctions, Canadian DMV, consumer protection agencies, insurance claims administrators, auto dealers and regulatory agencies. You can type in the VIN to get a free summary; a full vehicle history report is $29.99. Or if you haven't decided on a car, pay $43.99 for unlimited reports for 60 days. For $59.99 you can get unlimited reports for 60 days plus Title Guard insurance. Sales Tax: Connecticut, D.C., Hawaii, Maryland, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, West Virginia.
