Ratings and Reviews
This was super helpful before I purchased my new/used car yesterday! I get they cannot provide the accident/service history for free, however, they provide every single other detail you could want, and even provide a link to a free site that shows if the vehicle has either theft in its history, or if it has been wrecked/salvaged/refurbished & if so when. I literally had THE hardest time finding online an accurate list of ALL the features on the specific year/make/model car I was looking at, but because this info is based off VIN, they provide the most accurate & detailed list I’ve seen anywhere....in addition to a ton of other helpful & relevant information. Thanks, keep up the great work!!

What more can you ask for?
I first encountered this app as a web-based app when researching a car. The web UI was excellent and provided a lot of detail information. A week ago, I was doing some more research, and I said it would be nice to have that browser-based app as a mobile app. Little did I know it was already available. I was blown away with this app, and the UI on the app is so granular. Everything and more one would need when researching a VIN#. What more can you ask for in an app like this?

This is great to hear. Thank you very much for your feedback.
This app gives you all the info you could be looking for, that were issued by the manufacturer. Great if you’re buying a used car because very often the current dealer won’t know exactly what features are on your car. There was even some extra info that was helpful that I didn’t realize I’d like to have.
