No, it means that the vehicle has previously been damaged and/or repaired. This was announced during the sale of the vehicle at the auction on that date.

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 damages to the vehicle previously in its history.

The auction 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 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.
