Protect your safety by avoiding previously damaged cars!
Previously damaged cars are known to be inferior in safety, due to possible electrical issues, loss of structural integrity, suspension issues, etc. It is nearly impossible to repair a car 100% even for the best professionals. Usually however, when the repairs are done cosmetic issues and making sure the check engine light isn´t on take top priority – while everything else, including your safety is secondary. You would never know for example that a cracked metal support part was repaired by welding instead of being replaced until it snaps on you on the highway – avoid even thinking about such a thing!
Previously damaged cars cost much more in the long run - avoid the mechanic.
Previously damaged cars cost more money in the long-run, usually needing much more expensive repairs than their all-original counterparts. Issues usually arise gradually, but as a result of the accident. Just because "it drives fine" today, does not mean it will not break on you tomorrow. A car that has been previously in an accident, even if repaired well, is never in as good condition as one that has not had any damage. Previously repaired and repainted cars are much more prone to rust, suspension component failure, complicated electrical problems, water leaks, bad fuel economy, premature tire wear and much more.
Think a NEW Car will not have any of these issues? Think again.
If you are thinking of avoiding potential issues by either buying brand new, or leasing, think again. Even new cars are driven short distances when they are being transported or parked in outside parking lots. Many times cars are damaged in one way or another before delivery to the buyer. These damages are never reported and are usually fixed right away by the dealer without anyone ever knowing the truth. Furthermore, many dealers are officially allowed to repaint and repair these "brand new" vehicles and still sell them at full retail price. You do not want to pay top dollar for an inferior vehicle.
It is the best bargaining tool against a car dealer.
For years this type of tool was available only to elite car dealers because of its expensive price tag and exclusivity to dealer networks. For the first time it is being available to you at a low cost rental. Car Dealers will never expect a regular customer to walk in with one of these tools; this is the only way to have leverage against a car dealer. If for example a dealer´s best price for a particular vehicle is $20k and then you check and see it has been in a previous accident you can automatically negotiate a minimum $1000-2000 off the price. You should never pay market price for a previously damaged vehicle.
The Carfidant Tool is easy enough for anyone to use. No specific knowledge required.
This tool uses percise electronic technology which allows for a sophisticated, yet very easy way to check a vehicle. Easy to follow, simple instructions will be provided with the Carfidant Tool. In short, all you will need to do is turn the tool on, press it against every metal body panel of the car and compare the readings given, they should be roughly the same - if any of the readings stand out (usually thicker paint - higher reading) you know which area has been worked on. It is that simple. In addition we will also explain how to spot the difference between a simple repaint or one that has body filler and is much more serious as well as provide car purchasing tips, advice and industry secrets.
The Carfidant Tool is more reliable than CarFax/AutoCheck
The Carfidant Tool is the only way to truly know if a cars body is all original or not. Neither CarFax nor Autocheck can truly verify this. These services only report what was officially reported to the authorities or other private services. You can imagine how many accidents and other issues are never officially reported. Furthermore, many times officially salvaged cars can be bought with clean titles that have clean CarFax´s or AutoCheck´s, but actually have been previously damaged despite it showing a "clean history."
