    Cheap alternative to Carfax?

    I want to run a VIN on Carfax but dang, it's not cheap. Is there an alternative that won't cost me $60 for 5 reports?

    Call your current insurance company and see if they'll do it for you. Just explain that you're considering buying a vehicle but want to make sure it's all good. They should be happy to do it as you'll be giving them more money if you buy, and they may be able to find out if anything is hidden. With that being said, a Carfax will only show what has been reported.

    I heard positive feedback about Auto Check but never had personal experience with them.

    Good idea. Geico said no.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
