The car VIN number look up will provide some limited information about the vehicle. However, if you choose to pay, you can receive some in-depth information. The free VIN look up can provide information that will tell you if the vehicle had been totaled and salvaged. Additionally, it will identify if the vehicle had flood damage, if the odometer had been rolled-back, emission inspection results, Lemon history information, liens, or mechanic’s holds. Also, if the vehicle was used as a rental, a taxi, or for other commercial driving use. Sometimes, the service and repair history may be available, but that is typically when the vehicle was previously used in the service industry.
