CARFAX saved us from buying a flooded, and totaled, car.

Date posted: October 1, 2013

We were interested in an ’08 Smart Fortwo Cabrio. The ad and the dealer’s website failed to mention there had been flood damage, so I am really glad that we decided to get a CARFAX Report. The report showed that it had been flooded, and that before the flood damage it had been totalled. When I spoke to the dealer about our findings, they gave a few explanations, but nothing that really convinced us the car was safe to buy. We ended up going elsewhere to buy a one-owner Smart Fortwo with a clean history and documented regular maintenance. Thanks CARFAX!
