Inaccurate Carfax Reports!

According to Carfax all 1986 Jeep Cherokees and Comanches with the 2.5L 4 cylinder have a 5.0L 1bbl OHV engine. Also according to them the 1986 2.8L V6 is an inline 6. I have contacted Carfax about these errors and they have done nothing for 4 months and they insist that they are right! They say that the Vins decode as American Motors instead of Jeep. Even though American Motors owned Jeep in 1986 and 1987 Cherokees and Comanches were built by Jeep Corporation just like Chevrolet vehicles are built by Chevrolet a division of General Motors, but they don't call a Camaro a General Motors Camaro or a Corvette a General Motors Corvette. They call it a Chevrolet Camaro or Corvette. The second position in my Vin and all of your Vins is a J and it stands for "Jeep" not American Motors. My title says Jeep and it is insured as Jeep. All other sites that do vehicle history reports have the correct information.

If I am not mistaken, back in 86 youcould still get the J truck which was also called a comanche at one time in its production life. There might be where the confusion is. I had an 87 XJ which had the AMC title, it really doesn't mean anything. I believe there is just a lil confusion on their part as to what vehicle you are talking about. Besides that... is it really worth getting all twisted about it.

A 1988 shouldn't have any AMC stuff on it. 1987 was the last year for AMC. In 1988 Jeep was owned by Chrysler.
