VIN Lookup Help

We've been searching for a free VIN lookup for an RV we're considering.

The last thread found on irv2 took us to an external link that doesn't exist any longer.

Does anyone know of a good site that offers a free VIN lookup?

Thanks!

Never seen a free lookup site.

I never buy any motorized vehicle without the Carfax report but you have to pay for it.

Thanks Greystoke, appreciate you chiming in. I don't mind paying for the report. But these reviews make me a bit weary: Top 387 Complaints and Reviews about Carfax

My understanding is that for $55 you can have unlimited VIN lookups but one of the folks at the link above said they only got 5 after paying for the unlimited.

Has your experience been better and how has the carfax report informed your buying decisions?

Respectfully,

Thanks for complaint info. I did not know. The last time I bought I bought 5 reports without a problem through USAA. Did not have a problem.

Never heard of unlimited Carfax reports so I just checked their main site and the only thing they have that is unlimited is reports based on License Plates, not Vin. But it is upfront. If you look at 10 used cars by owner yu could get all 10 free reports based on license. What is wrong with that. It didn't mention time limits but if it is forever, what is wrong with that. I might order that next. I will find out first.

I think Carfax has to report what is in the official files so if those files are wrong it is hard to blame them. I doubt that they are "doctoring" the official files.

I read a lot of the complaints but saw nothing that would prevent me from using them for my next purchase.

But that is just me.
