I'm thinking that it is the dealership where the car was originally sold, or the dealership the car was sold to.

Could be an insurance claim. I actually paid for the info on my car before I bought it. Glad I did. It gave me the entire vehicle history from the day it was originally sold. I think I paid about 20 bucks for 20 vehicle reports. I only used it once, but my other 19 have expired now. There'* a couple companies on the internet that do this.

The reports will tell you about any accident (in the US) where more than $500 damage was incurred, any water damage (like Murdock'* unfortunate experience), title changes, and mileage at each title change, lienholders, and any extraordinary mechanical service.

So is the 1 record meaning of one person owning it, or one insurance claim then?

I told the guy that accident quoted cars are ok because they are so cheap, and when they quote accident at the auction, it can be something as small as a parking lot dent in the door, but they legally have to claim it.

Does anyone have an unlimited subscription to hat thing that i could borrow just this once? please?

I tried out one of those sites too (possibly the same one), and I decided not to pay for the full report. Mine showed 3 documents, and I'm pretty sure that those have to be the original lease (mine was a GM lease from Virginia), the sale to the rental agency (it had become a seldom used rental car...too expensive I guess), and the sale to us.

These are supposed to be every available document pertaining to the car, so they would have to include every sale, wouldn't they? I think it'* pretty safe to assume that the 1 document is the original sale, but you can pay for the full report if it'* really bugging you.

Thanks so much Roadrash :P i really really really really really really realllllllllllllllllllly appreciate it I'm going to call and see when the car will be delivered so i can see it!!

The only thing holding me back is the kms....I figure if i drive it as much as i do Hollywood, in 5 years (the financing time) It will have 260,000kms on it already at 8 years old So I may have to get it drive it for a bit and see if i can sell it without losing $$ ....i know i'm saying that now but i won't be able to...i'll be way too attached to it
