Anyone have a CarFax or AutoCheck account?

We have to replace my son's car (Lowly Ford Escape) and have a couple of VINs I would like to get the background on.

Thanks in advance!

According to Carfax.com, one Carfax report can be purchased for $39.99 and five reports can cost $59.99. For $69.99, you can get unlimited reports for 60 days

Are either of these VINs for a Ford vehicle?

yes, but too late.

We picked up one with what the dealer provided.
The only thing that I would have liked to know ahead of time is it was not a local trade, as I would have used that to negotiate a few more dollars off, after bein told it was a local trade.

For about $2500 my son moved up one year (2017 to 2018), up from am SE to an SEL, and down from 82K miles to 32K miles. The only down side was going form a panno roof to no sunroof, but he didn't care about that.

I would be able to look at warranty history for this vehicle, if there were interest. PM the VIN, if so.
