Will a vehicle history report check for a clean vehicle title?

Absolutely. In fact, many people use a vehicle history report just for that purpose. It's so important to know - before you buy a vehicle - that everything is in order with its paperwork and history. Otherwise, you're setting yourself up for headaches later.

By obtaining a car title or VIN check, you'll get a glimpse into a vehicle's life. Sure, some of this can be told by having a qualified mechanic do a thorough inspection on the vehicle. But, a mechanic may miss some things, like if a vehicle has been in a serious accident, if the mileage is incorrect, if it ever was declared a salvage vehicle, if it has sustained water damage, if it's been stolen, and many other things. From all this information, you can receive a more complete look at what you'll be buying.

Also, if there appears to be problems in the past with the vehicle title, it could be a sign that the vehicle was neglected. And, that could mean that routine maintenance wasn't performed on the car, which could shorten its life and cause more mechanical troubles for you.

That's why so many experts recommend paying a small amount of money to get a VIN check before you purchase a vehicle.
