Experian AutoCheck Same Car 2 Sellers Better Score

Here we have a 1988 Pontiac Fiero listed for sale on eBay Motors with it’s FREE Experian AutoCheck History Report It was offered for sale by TWO Different Sellers and each sellers Experian Vehicle History Report is given different scores!

Seller 1 lists this 1988 Pontiac Fierro and AutoCheck lists it as having 7 Owners and gives it a title score of only 7 which is nearly as low as they get!

Seller 2 buys this same 1988 Fiero from Seller 1. Then takes new photos and lists the came car on eBay Motors. Wow.. It’s a Miracle.. AutoCheck NOW gives this SAME CAR a Score of 20 and lists it as having 4 Owners!

BUT It’s the SAME CAR. Seller one sold this car to buyer one. Buyer one cleans the car up a bit, takes new photos, and lists the car for sale on eBay. How could Experian AutoCheck come up with a Different Score for each sellers listing?

No Wonder eBay Motors is GIVING AUTO CHECK AWAY FOR FREE! Where is Experian digging this data up from? Are they pulling it out of a magic hat like a rabbit?

Nobody knows i guess. But one thing is for sure. If your considering buying a car on eBay Motors, or anywhere else, ask the seller for a CarFax report.

CarFax Reports are without a doubt the Authority On Vehicle History Reports!

    magnificent post, very informative. I wonder why the other specialists of this sector do not notice this. You should continue your writing. I am sure, you’ve a great readers’ base already!

    Today I bought a car off ebay only to run a vin check later in the day to find it was sold at a salvage dealer with a clear title. The mileage dont make sense in the autocheck report either. I believe this title has been washed and repackaged as something it was not. I really wanted the car but I cannot screw myself and now the seller is all mad at me and threatening to tell ebay. I feel it was not as described and I dont want it if it has a problem like clear title when it was a salvage.

      If you give me the item number i will have a look at it. Also vehicle bids on eBay Motors are non binding according to eBay policy.
