Is a vehicle history report a wise purchase?

A report on the history of a vehicle is a report on the information gathered for that particular vehicle.  If information is omitted, missed, or inaccurately represented by any of the institutions, agencies, or sources providing this information, then the report will omit, miss, or inaccurately represent the vehicle.  A disclaimer similar to this is usually supplied with each vehicle history report.

Buying from a reputable Automobile Dealer who knows the history of the vehicle, and having the vehicle checked over by a reputable mechanic you know and trust, are other ways of obtaining valuable information regarding the history of a vehicle.

A Vehicle History Report is simply another resource to assist in your buying decision.
