Carfax Offers Consumers' Resolutions

carfaxCarfax offers these five resolutions to help consumers avoid common scams and buy used cars with more confidence:

• Consider manufacturer-backed certified pre-owned cars, but be wary of cars with 'too good to be true' prices.

• Make sure the seller provides the title along with other important paperwork prior to sale. Service records help buyers evaluate a car's condition, while the registration and an insurance card can prove ownership.

• Don't get pressured by someone wanting a quick sale.

• Get a Carfax Report.

• Also consult a trusted mechanic or body shop technician.
