The federal database which holds information on every road car in the United States and by accessing this database, buyers can find out how many previous owners a car has had and other important information relating to its condition and safety. To find out everything you need to know about your dream car, all you will need is an internet-ready device, a credit card, and the Car Identification Number (VIN). The seller should disclose this unique 17-digit code as it is illegal to withhold information about a car’s history from potential buyers. In most passenger cars, the VIN can be found on a metal plate located in the driver’s side door jamb or the left side of the dashboard. Motorcycle VINs are usually printed on the side of headstock tubing.

What are Colorado car title brands?

Car title brands are essentially labels which tell you key information about a used car’s history. Not all title brands are deal-breakers but there are some especially negative ones to look out for – ‘salvage’ being one of the worst. According to the DOR, cars branded as salvage are not safe to drive and may not be legally registered. This may be the result of damage caused by a collision, accident, flood or fire. If your car title search turns up a ‘salvage’ brand, make sure it also lists a ‘rebuilt’ brand. This indicates that the car has been reconstructed and has passed all relevant safety checks.

    Daniel, unfortunately this is a vintage vehicle with fewer than 17 digits in the VIN. This means that in some circumstances these Colorado vehicle title records did not get transcribed to a digital format. That said, there really aren’t any services besides the motor vehicle department that can access this information. You can try contacting the Colorado Department of Revenue – Motor Vehicle Department to inquire about the vintage Colorado vehicle you are interested in.

    Michelle, you will need to run a vehicle history report to find out if the title is clean however it won’t necessarily tell you of all the previous owners. You will need to first run a Colorado VIN check and then make sure you’re abiding by all the state and federal privacy laws for your search and then verify your RV. Then you will have the option to purchase a vehicle history report and more
