What is a VIN
What is a VIN Number and why do we use it? The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) was originally described in ISO Standard 3779 in February 1977. It was last revised in 1983. This VIN was designed to identify motor vehicles, trailers, motorcycles and mopeds.

1.25 million vehicles totaled each year in North America are sold at salvage auctions, rebuilt and put back on the road.

Protect yourself. Your local used auto dealer is not on your side. They want your money and will tell you or sell you anything to get it. This website will help you know how to protect yourself from buying a lemon, and what to do if you already have one.

The best best is to avoid buying a used lemon car in the first place. Here's two tips from the start to avoid buying a junked car:

  • Get a vehicle history report. Assume from the start that the car is not clean. We tell you how to get a free report in our Lemon Report Newsletter. A report will tell you if the car has a problem history. All you need to get one is the vehicles VIN number. You can get a Free Vehicle History Check online. Use the box to the left to get started.

  • Have the vehicle checked out and verified by an independent mechanic or repair shop that you trust, and a body shop not affiliated with the dealership, and factor these costs into the final deal price, including deals from national car chains and private parties.

Most likely you've heard of someone having a bad experience with a used car or truck they just purchased. This is becoming more and more common. There are lemon laws that protect consumers, but who really wants to spend countless hours and thousands of dollars trying to settle a legal battle. A used car purchase is the hardest to win and get a settlement from in a court of law.

Help us stop lemon scams! We want to hear your car buying stories! If you have legal actions, sob stories, or dealership problems that may help someone with buying a used car, or dealing with a lemon - please let us know. Everyday hard working Americans are scammed out of their money on cars that are not road worthy. Help us put a stop to this dirty business practice.
