Specific vehicle history
 
Long time reader first time poster. Good morning. I am looking at buying another zj with 2 minor accidents on it, according to autocheck. Are there more specific checks that I can use besides autocheck and carfax to get damage reports. I am looking into what exactly was fixed or damaged in these accidents. Both checks seem really vague on what happened. I might just track down previous owners and ask them. Vehicle is being sold at dealership and their not much help.

If you can get the receipt from the last owner from the body shop(s), then you would at least know what was done. BUT even that wont tell you if it was done right.

I have seen what looks minor to be more than major. As well as what you might think is bad, fixable.

Most get totaled so easy today. As long as the airbags do not go off most can be fixed but you add in that system repair and interior parts all seat belts, it can get into more than most used will be worth on top of body damage.

So it might be just a few fender benders and be a fine truck?

What I meant to say was minor incident, but I will probably track down owners anyway. thanks for the reply. Minor incidents are everything from door dings to fenderbenders and vandalism, or any insurance claims I think.
