Why do you need a CAR VX Report?

Car VX Limited is the first and only provider of Japanese vehicle history reports – a critical tool when you’re buying or selling a used vehicle. A CAR VX Report establishes trust and transparency between a used car buyer and a used car seller by removing the guesswork about a vehicle’s past – replacing it with impartial, accurate and real-time data.


Besides your home, the purchase of a vehicle is probably the most expensive item you'll ever buy. When buying used, it can be difficult to determine whether the vehicle you think you're about to purchase (a trustworthy vehicle that will last for years) is exactly what you're going to end up with. Some questions you might ask yourself include:

  • Has an accident ever been reported on the vehicle?
  • Has the vehicle been damaged by floods, fires, hail or other natural disaster?
  • Is the mileage on the odometer accurate?
  • Has the vehicle ever been recalled?
  • Was the vehicle used as a service vehicle (police car, taxi, etc.)?
  • Was the vehicle ever stolen?
  • Is the vehicle meet your safety standards?
  • Is there a risk of radioactive contamination?

How can you get an answer to any of these questions?

No matter what, you should always have the used vehicle you plan to buy examined by a certified mechanic to make sure any possible issues are diagnosed and resolved before you spend your money. Equally important is to obtain a review of the vehicle's history, which you can get by running a CAR VX Vehicle History Report.

The CAR VX Vehicle History Report is the key to buying a quality used car that has been imported from Japan. It tells you what you need to know about an imported used car before you buy it. Many cars imported from Japan have negative history: they have been in accidents, been stolen, been flooded, been salvaged and rebuilt, etc. and then shipped abroad. CAR VX helps you find the quality used imports and identify the ones with problems so you don’t lose money by buying one with costly hidden problems.

Every CAR VX Report contains critical information that can impact your decision about a used imported vehicle.

Never buy a used car imported from Japan without checking the CAR VX Vehicle History Report.
