We at Columbus Mitsubishi North like to be as transparent as possible with all of our customers in the Columbus area. That is why we include a CARFAX report with all of our used and certified pre-owned vehicles. The reports are even visible for everyone to see while browsing our used inventory on the lot. We want to make sure you get as much information as possible before deciding on which vehicle to take home.

What is a CARFAX Report?

A CARFAX report contains a detailed history of a vehicle. CARFAX compiles this public information into one spot to make things easier for potential car buyers. The first thing you will see is a list of all the previous vehicle owners. You can see how long every owner had the car and approximately how many miles they put on the car during this time. This is very valuable information because some buyers are wary of getting a used vehicle with a lot of owners.

The next section of the CARFAX report is a detailed history of the vehicle's title. This section will let you know if a vehicle has received damage from a fire, flood, or hail. It also lists if the vehicle was salvaged or had an inaccurate odometer reading.

The final section of the CARFAX report contains all other information that may be noteworthy to a potential buyer. This includes structural damage, airbag deployments, manufacturer recalls over the years, and a detailed history of all accidents. The accident reports come directly from the police department records, so everything is guaranteed to be factual.

It typically costs $40 to obtain a CARFAX report, but we want our customers in Columbus and beyond to get all the information they deserve. Come visit our dealership to get peace of mind the next time you need a used Mitsubishi, used model, or certified pre-owned vehicle.
