Speaking from first hand knowledge, CarFax is worthless. I bought a car with a perfectly clean CarFax and later found the head had been replaced, repainted, basically a salvage vehicle. If the work done on the car isn't reported then it simply appears "clean". BTW Carfax has done absolutely nothing regarding the "buyback" guarantee. Look close and you will be hard pressed to find a phone number to reach them. Get a car inspector for about a 100 bucks and don't the mistake i did. GL!

Carfax prohibits their services being used by carfax members to pull up information for non-members. They scour forums looking for this very type of thing.

I agree with all of the above. Two years ago my car was hit on the right side, had the MB dealer do the insurance work and a paint shop finish up the job. I ran a carfax report a week ago and nothing about the damage was on the report. Don't waste your money.
