Lexus is the luxury division of the Japanese car manufacturer Toyota. It is one of the most widely spread (present in more than 70 countries) and, at the same time appreciated. Lexus cars are very reliable and promise to run for lots of years if well maintained. So, if you want a used car, that's definitely not a bad choice.
But, as many savvy drivers already know, you can't allow yourself to purchase a used car without being fully aware of its past. Not all sellers and car dealers are honest and tell you everything about the real conditions of the car. Some may just not know some important details because they are not the vehicle's first owner.
In such circumstances, you face the risk of discovering about relevant car defects only when you've already closed the deal. It sure isn't funny to discover that you have to shell out lots of money to restore a car that seemed almost perfect.
Nor it is to have an accident because the car breaks down while you drive at high speed on the highway.
These things are real and can happen if the car had a serious accident or a manufacture defect, without being repaired properly. If that's the case of the car at hand and your seller doesn't tell you anything about it, you can discover such secrets with a Lexus VIN check.
This will give you all the information needed to close a safe deal, without taking any unnecessary risk.
Lexus VIN Number Check
A Lexus vin number check can be a really fast process and to perform it you need just the VIN number of the vehicle in question. This is an identification code of 17 signs (both letters and numbers), which is given to every car destined to the American market.
Running this code through the different databases allows to gather all the necessary information.
You can find the VIN number on the documentation, on the bottom corner of the windshield (driver's side) and on stickers on one or both the front doors. But, since they can be all changed with fakes, look out for the VIN also on other car parts:
- on the nearside inner wing on a metal plaque
- stamped into the chassis cross member, under the driver's seat
- SC, LS;
- on a metal plaque above the offside suspension top
- stamped into the center of the bulkhead
- on a metal plaque on the nearside center of the bulkhead
- stamped into the offside center of the bulkhead
On some Lexus models, the VIN is also stamped in front of one of the front seats.
After you found out the VIN number, just type it in the white box and use our tool by clicking the button. In addition to accidents history, you will be provided with information about:
- Mileage rollback. Compare the data with the odometer in the car to discover if the amount of miles was changed to sell the car for a higher price.
- Damages by fire, floods or any other means.
- Recalls. This section will let you know if the car had any manufacturing defect and was it properly repaired or not.
- Car specs. Find out what equipment and body color the car had when manufactured.
- Loans and liens involving the vehicle. If there were any, make sure that everything is paid off.
- Records of theft and recovery. Discover if the car was ever stolen and what happened after.
Along with this plenty of data, the report will provide you also some other relevant information about the inspected vehicle.
Don't be fooled by any seller by just running a full report with our tool. Don't you prefer to feel safe?
