A wholesale auto auction has reported a vehicle as an "accident repair" because the auction has confirmed repairs were completed.

Typically, a CARFAX Canada Vehicle History Report with this type of record will also have another damage record - such as police reported accident, estimate and/or claim - noting previous damages to the vehicle.

The announcement would be reflective of this prior damage history but may also have been made based solely on a disclosure made by the seller and/or as the result of an inspection of the vehicle completed by the auction.

Please note we are unable to obtain additional information from our sources related to these announcements.

Before you buy a used car, we recommend that you get a CARFAX Canada Vehicle History Report, take a thorough test drive and have the vehicle inspected by a qualified mechanic and/or auto technician to make sure the vehicle is functioning properly.
