SCHAUMBURG, IL--Nov. 14, 2012: Experian Automotive today announced it has once again been selected by Porsche Cars North America, Inc., as the provider of vehicle history reports for its Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) program. By incorporating AutoCheck vehicle history reports into its CPO program, Porsche retailers provide used car shoppers with in-depth vehicle history information, allowing them to better understand, compare and select the right vehicle.

As part of the renewal agreement, Porsche also will include Experian Automotive's new three-year buyback protection. The new program protects customers purchasing a Porsche CPO vehicle against major hidden title brands on AutoCheck Assured vehicles.

"Our CPO program is based on the principle of providing customers with the utmost confidence when purchasing a Pre-Owned Porsche," said Kevin P Harvey, manager, Pre-Owned Business, Porsche Cars North America, Inc. "The inclusion of AutoCheck vehicle history reports and the new buyback protection program will allow our customers greater peace of mind, knowing that they are buying a quality vehicle that has not only passed our high program standards, but is also backed by the AutoCheck Buyback guarantee."

AutoCheck vehicle history reports provide consumers and automotive retailers with in-depth information that enables them to quickly and easily check if a vehicle has any reported accidents, frame damage or odometer rollback issues and other potentially negative events that can impact a vehicle's value.

"We are honored to continue our relationship with Porsche Cars North America, Inc., and to provide its dealers and customers with the information they need to better understand, compare and select the right vehicles," said Scott Waldron, president of Experian Automotive. "AutoCheck vehicle history reports and our new buyback program bring an additional layer of protection and insight into the used car buying process, making it more of a worry-free experience for all parties involved."
