"It helps us know what we're getting and make sure there are no surprises when we retail those vehicles. It definitely works for us and will for years in the future."

Access to Carfax Reports is vital to many dealers' acquisition and retail process. Any vehicles run through the 'Carfax for Dealers' app are automatically added to the dealer's inventory manager at Carfax Reports are saved for up to 30 days and dealers can mark vehicles they're most interested in as favorites within the app.
