How can I tell how many owners a used car has had?

Reviewing Title History

You can tell how many owners a used car has had by reviewing the car’s title history. One of the easiest ways to obtain a title history is by ordering a vehicle history report.

You might wonder how important it is to determine how many owners a used car has had. In some cases, it might not be important at all. But if a car has had many owners, it might be an indication that something is wrong with the car. At the very least, more owners can make it that much more difficult to find out about the car’s history.

If you’re in the market for a used car, you should find out how many owners it's had. A vehicle history report contains all kinds of information about the history of a car, including:
  • Ownership and title history.
  • History of maintenance, including oil changes, performed at service centers.
  • Insurance claims.
  • Major accidents and repairs.
This is all great information when trying to determine the market value of a used car. And when a car has had many previous owners, a vehicle history report may be the only way you’re able to even get that information.
