It can unlock information on where it’s been, what it’s done, and how it’s been used – and sometimes you can check a vehicle’s history for free.

VEHICLE HISTORY WILL LET YOU CHECK ANY VIN NUMBER FREE


Buying a car is scary, particularly when it’s used. Whether it be an aggressive salesman or a sketchy neighborhood, you’re constantly worried about paying too much for a car that’s going to break down as soon as you put it in drive. Fortunately, there are hundreds of websites and apps that can help you get a comprehensive car report in the click of a button. Unfortunately, they will cost you an arm and a leg to do so. Unless, of course, you take advantage of Vehicle History. And you should.

You may remember when Credit Karma took the truly free model to the people. After all the stink made by consumers after FreeCreditReport.com turned out to be anything but, they came in and saved the day by providing actually free credit reports to costumers far and wide. Vehicle History wants to do the same for your car report. You shouldn’t have to pay extra to find out whether your thousands of dollars are going to a pile of junk. You are privileged to the knowledge of previous crashes, dubious owners, and a check engine light that just won’t turn off. And Vehicle History is how to get that knowledge for nothing.  Read More...





IT'S LIKE CARFAX, BUT FREE VEHICLE HISTORY OFFERS CAR REPORTS AT NO COST

That is why vehicle history reports are so important, so you can get the full lowdown on your car's past life.

Typically, car shoppers will go turn to Carfax, VinAudit, or some other similar service, but they will end up paying anywhere from $10 to $40 to get the info they are after. Thankfully, there is a new kid on the block that supplies vehicle history reports for free.  Read More...

CLARION BUILDS RESURRECTS AND IMPROVES A 1991 ACURA NSX


Clarion Builds, the marketing division of Clarion USA, is getting a reputation for building and restoring tasteful examples of iconic classics. The way their plan works is driven partly by their love of the automobile and their desire to breathe new life into cars that left mental impressions on enthusiasts everywhere.

"We decided to do Clarion Builds as a unique marketing exercise that gets creative from the perspective of how you really want to talk to your audience," said Clarion's Vice President of Marketing and Product Planning, Allen Gharapetian. "Sure, anyone can do a traditional magazine advertisement for a company, show the boss a copy of it and say, ‘here's what we did,' and hopefully, he will respond with ‘good, good!' We wanted to be different." Their first go-round resulted in the successful restoration and subsequent charity auctioning of a 1974 BMW 2002 coupe. Using social media such as Facebook, YouTube and Instagram as a means for getting their message and progress out, Clarion Builds claims the project was good for nearly a billion media impressions. Those are serious numbers.  Read More...
