They are both different, I check a car last week and autocheck did not have the last mileage 90k showing, I check carfax and it showed it

I will defiantly be taking my next vehicle not only to a dealer for inspection but to a body shop. Carfax should be sued. Experian Auto check for life!!!
thank you very much for the share. I watched the whole thing and now understand why people should check multiple sources when buying a ysed car.

Doesnt carfax or any check only work if it is a reported accident
You can get in an accident yourself and fix it
Someone tried that on me when I was looking at a M45, I was looking at the trunk and saw some welding where it shouldnt be

Take for a test drive, then Take it to car max they'll inspect it and tell u if its been damaged.
