C.A.R.Score, a division of Dealer Specialties, LLC, announced Jan. 22 its vehicle condition reports will now be available on the CARFAX Vehicle History Report.
The vehicle condition details that C.A.R.Score captures will live indefinitely within the CARFAX Vehicle History Report for applicable vehicles.
C.A.R.Score vehicle inspectors perform a full, cosmetic evaluation of the vehicle including photos of any visual damage. After the inspection is completed, the car is given a star rating for consumers to better understand the vehicle's current condition.
"By including C.A.R. Score report data in the CARFAX report, our companies are providing consumers with very specific information about a vehicle at different points across its lifecycle," said Shane Marcum, president of Dealer Specialties. "Not only will this allow consumers to make better decisions about the vehicle they are considering, it will also provide them additional confidence in their purchase decision."
C.A.R.Score reports display the exterior and interior condition of the vehicle including instrument and control panels, mirrors, upholstery and even reports the scent of the vehicle. These interactive condition reports show specific details that car shoppers are looking for, yet, until recently, were not available on vehicle history reports.
"CARFAX is the trusted source of information for shoppers looking for their next car," said Faisal Hasan, general manager of data at CARFAX. "The addition of the C.A.R.Score report to the CARFAX Report, helps build consumer confidence by offering another reference point about the condition of a vehicle at a specific point in time. It's a great compliment to the other information you find in a CARFAX Report."
