Vehicle history report

About the report!

Vehicle history report autoDNA is a comprehensive source of information about the past of the vehicle. It's kind of a used car passport, which contains the most important events and information relevant for the potential buyer. The report is divided into several major categories, which gather information in a clear and practical way.

Prior information

At the beginning of the report, we have listed VIN, model year, make and model of the vehicle and its type of fuel.

Next section given age of vehicle based on the model year or production date and date of first registration. It is worth remembering that in addition to cars produced for order, which are recorded immediately after manufacture in the dealers, there are popular engine versions and outfitting the colors are often chosen by the customer (eg. silver metallic, red, white). These cars usually waiting for the client, so the delay of 3-4 months between the date of first registration is nothing unusual. Only difference bigger than six months should rise our vigilance - dealer held car long in the square and sold it for example: only a year after the manufacture of the car or that car during transport to the deader could be damaged and it was necessary interference from tinsmith or painter. Sometimes delay maybe result from place of the production vehicle, e.g. Car manufactured in Japan and South Korea can be deliver to a dealer in Europe after several months.

Summary of the report

Summary of the report contain all the available data of the used vehicle.

It is divided into 3 groups:

1. Main information, contain: basic vehicle information, check stolen cars databases, manufacturer recalls/flaws and information about the manufacturer.

2. Vehicle history, which groups odometer readings, history damages and the history of prices and vehicle usage (official use): taxi, leasing, previous registration and owners, information about technical inspections.

3. Additional information, including supplemental information: vehicle equipment, archival photographs of the vehicle (if available), as well as last enquiries showing the previous query to autoDNA about a specific VIN.

Useful information

Useful information shows average mileage of vehicle in the numerical form and graphics form according to the year of production for specific type of fuel (diesel or petrol).
These data are presented on the basis of the statement of similar vehicles of that type in the autoDNA database and should be treated as image numbers. If we are interested in the car which has much less odometer reading, than would appear from autoDNA database, it probably has odometer rollback.

Average mileage is given in a graphic form for specific engine type. That enables you to compare the differences in the odometer (reported on an annual basis)

Values included in this section are reference values and are approximate values.

Last Enquiries

This section presents information about frequency, time and localization of checks on the vehicle. Such a knowledge is valuable for the potential purchaser, since he knows who and when was interested in the vehicle. The vehicle could have been offered for sale or someone wanted to buy it in a given time. If such transaction has not been finalized, you should be interested in who and why could have been interested in the vehicle.

Equipment

Here you can find the information regarding the equipment of your vehicle. The information will be presented in the report depending on their availability in our system.

The information that may be presented is:

  • upholstery color,
  • chassis - lacquer color,
  • trim information - that is if moldings, bumpers, mirrors, door handles are in the same color as body or not,
  • glass color,
  • A/C type,
  • navigation or audio system type,
  • heated and folding mirrors,
  • electric windows,
  • number of airbags, etc.

It is worth to verify such information before buying a used car. Check exactly what pieces of equipment are on the report and compare them with currently installed on the vehicle. Here some examples: glass color before the vehicle is bought, since if the vehicle had an accident, the new glass is not original one or taken from another vehicle to save the money and its color may then vary. A similar situation may occur, for example in case of mirrors. See what have been installed in the original, whether they are folded, electrically operated and heated.

It is also worth checking if the vehicle actually does not have additional equipment such as "auxiliary electric windows" or other elements, which were not included at the production stage.

Vehicle Archived Photos

Here you will find the image gallery of the checked vehicle. In special cases the images may be repeated if the owner shared the images with various entities.
