Walnut, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/13/2015 -- John Balter, founder of VinFreeCheck, announced the launch of the firm's new universal VIN decoder, allowing anyone to check the specifications on their car for free. The VIN decoder provides individuals with essential information about a vehicle that includes accident involvement, lien history and mechanical problems.
"We have one of the largest databases of car specifications and salvage title history in North America," said Balter.
Each car, truck and motorcycle contains a vehicle identification number (VIN) that is unique to that conveyance. The 17 character code contains a wealth of information about any given vehicle, allowing individuals to make informed purchasing decisions. The free VIN decoder breaks down the VIN number to reveal information about a car that can save buyers time, money and headaches.
Despite the institution of "lemon laws," millions of people fall prey each year to unscrupulous sellers who fail to disclose critical information about the car they're selling. Buyers who purchase from a private individual can find it very difficult to recoup their losses and prove the seller knew about defects and problems. The buyer may be forced to seek litigation with no guarantee of satisfaction.
The cost of a new vehicle is out of reach for many people, resulting in a boom in used car sales. Many of the used vehicles being sold at auto dealers are purchased at car auctions and may contain falsified service and maintenance records. Other sellers may fail to disclose that the vehicle has been in an accident, flood, have defects or been recalled, or was actually listed as salvage.
Information on the website is updated daily as it becomes available. VinFreeCheck also provides VIN checks on cars, motorcycles, salvage and safety. The site features informative guides on topics ranging from insurance to the paperwork needed for buying a car. Visitors to the site will find comprehensive information on lemon laws by state.
The launch of the new universal VIN decoder by VinFreeCheck provides car buyers with the essential information they need to avoid purchasing defective, damaged and undesirable vehicles. The online resource allows individuals to make informed decisions about the cars they purchase, saving untold time, money and mental stress.
