If you're going to buy a used car, it is important that you obtain a used car history report. This report will provide any information about the vehicle that has been reported to insurance companies or other agencies. For instance, you will learn about any accidents that the car has been involved in or if it has been salvaged.

A used car history report will also have an official odometer reading that you can compare to the reading listed on the car itself. If the numbers don't match, it is probably a good idea to look at another vehicle.

However, at Mark Martin Motor in Ephrata, PA, we won't sell cars or trucks that don't have accurate odometer readings or other serious issues. Used car history reports will let you know how many previous owners the car has had, which can be an indicator of how reliable it is.
