In life, we have many serious relationships where a knowledge of the other parties’ past would’ve been deeply helpful when the relationship began. When the relationship between you and a potential new used car in your life gets serious it’s time to dig around in that cars past a little bit.

For instance, it won’t tell you anything about the service history and legal past of the car.
