Carfaxes are not free

The CarFax Odometer Check is indeed free. The Vehicle History Report is not free.

I've always had at least one highly trained mechanic look over the car before I bought it. I don't put any faith in the odometer. How many miles are on the car is only one indicator of the condition of the car. I have seen plenty of cars that were very unsafe after only 70k miles. And conversely many cars that were mint with over 200k.

I have never thought about the odometer as being a hazard. I didn't think that this was possible. I will definitely be more aware of reversing the odometer in future car purchases.
