Since its inception in 1993, Car Detective’s mission has always been to provide the consumer with everything he or she needs to know before purchasing or selling a new or used vehicle. With that in mind, we have created one of the largest databases of vehicle information in the country. Utilizing vital information from various federal, state and local agencies, as well as used car experts and actual vehicle owners, we have developed a unique service not found anywhere else on or off the internet.
