    Default past maintainance information???

    I came across a used suburban on a car dealers website, noticed it had a carfax, and clicked on it. I was surprised to notice that the carfax report reported about every maintenance item ever performed on that suburban and wht the mileage was. I ran a carfax on my suburban when I cought it, but it certainly wasn’t as extensive as that one. I know when you go back to the dealership they enter repairs under the vin # and this carfax also showed some info from pep-boys. Does anybody know where all this info really goes? Is there a dealership website out there that keeps it all? I would love to be able to check all of the repairs done on my suburban when the original owner had it…

    It depends on where the vehicle was serviced. Some dealers and service centers report to Carfax and AutoCheck and others do not report. On my last truck which was a Dodge the service manager at the dealer I bought from had a contract with Carfax to report service for like 3 years 2006-2009 and when it expired they didn't renew it and service visits were no longer reported.

    CarFAX is about useless ! NOBODY puts " truck has been wrecked " . " truck has bad engine "

    I have driven my 96 from new and it truley has been a LEMON from day one !

    The CARFAX is clear ! No mention of EXPLODING MANIFOLD ! , NO NEW ENGINE LISTED !

    The truck EATS fuel pumps ! NOPE NOTHING !
