Automotive aftermarket, frequently referred to as secondary market, manufactures and supplies spare parts, accessories and other components for various automobiles. Aftermarket industry provides services such as repair and maintenance for the vehicles. It is highly consumer driven and undergoing changes with evolving consumer expectations, technological advancement and changing dynamics. Shifts in competitive power in emerging economies contribute to transforming the industry landscape periodically. New technology in terms of innovative components and logistics are set to reduce gap between OEM and aftermarket offerings.

 

Surging pre-owned vehicle sales in turn help propel the repair and maintenance side of the automotive market, for improved vehicle performance. Growing middle class population in conjunction with increasing purchasing power is driving the vehicle sales and providing potential opportunities for aftermarket part manufacturers and supply chain providers. Ageing vehicle fleet, along with growing demand for replacement parts will further escalate the revenue generation in next few years.

 

Usage of sensor technology in vehicles provides optimum driving behavior that leads to less wear and tear of vehicle parts including brakes and tires. This reduces the replacement requirement that may hamper the automotive aftermarket industry growth. Ongoing R&D for new materials to decrease the deterioration wear and tear of vehicle parts that limit the product penetration. For instance, in March 2019, UBC Okanagan, University of Toronto and Sharif University of Technology developed self-lubricant brakes for cars. The carbon fiber-infused polymer-based brake are expected to provide high performance over wide range of temperatures with smaller brake pads and higher performance life.

Free VIN Check and Vehicle History Report. Find Accident History & More

How To Get a Vehicle History Report

A vehicle history report (or VIN check) is an invaluable tool if you are planning on buying or selling a vehicle. As a buyer, you can use a vehicle history report to give you peace of mind that the vehicle you are thinking of purchasing is in good condition. On the other hand, if you are selling a vehicle then a clean history report can help entice potential buyers.

How to Obtain a Vehicle History Report

You can obtain both free and paid VIN lookups. Free vehicle records will typically include less information than paid ones, but they may be sufficient depending on what information you need. The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) offers a free VinCheck. As with a complete vehicle history report, you will need to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) when using VinCheck. You can also only make up to five searches within a 24-hour period and certain vehicle records may take up to six months to be updated with VinCheck.

Alternatively, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) offers a more limited history report. The NHTSA’s search tool is useful mainly if you want to see if your vehicle or any of its parts have been recalled.

Third-party databases, including SearchQuarry.com, also offer both free and paid VIN lookups. The paid records offered through third-party companies tend to be the most complete. The National Motor Vehicle Title Information System provides a list of approved providers of vehicle information and history data. Note that some approved providers will only provide records to car dealers and not directly to consumers.

What is Included in a Vehicle History Report

Not all vehicle history reports will include the same information, but in general you can expect your VIN report to include some or all of the following:

  • Accident history
  • Previous owners
  • Liens held against the vehicle
  • Recalls
  • Flood damage
  • Title checks
  • History of airbag deployments
  • Maintenance record
  • Problems with the odometer
  • Records of theft

Note that not all VIN checks will include the same type of information. A record from the NICB, for example, is designed to prevent the exchange of stolen vehicles, so it’s great if you want to make sure that the car in question wasn’t reported stolen. On the other hand, it won’t include much information about that vehicle’s maintenance history.

Vehicle Records from the DMV

Most DMV’s don’t provide vehicle history records. However, many do provide vehicle registration and title abstracts, which contain much of the same information that you would find in a history report. In New York, for example, the registration abstract includes some useful history information, such as parking fines and insurance lapses. A title record abstract, meanwhile, will include information about previous owners of the vehicle.

License Plate and VIN Search

In many cases, looking up a car’s VIN is simply about peace of mind. Every car built after 1980 has its own VIN, which is unique to that vehicle.

What Does a Vehicle History Report Tell You?

A crucial step in any used car purchase is getting a vehicle history report. It’s like a window into the car’s past, providing a wealth of material so you can make an informed decision about whether to buy the vehicle and how much you should pay for it. They’re often referred to as Carfax reports, though Carfax.com is just one provider, joined by AutoCheck.com and other sources in providing vehicle history reports. AutoCheck is a division of credit reporting bureau Experian.

Vehicle history reports provide details about a car’s ownership, accident history, title status, mileage, and more. You’ll just need to know the car’s vehicle identification number (VIN) to get started. This guide will walk you through all of the different types of information you can find in a report on a vehicle’s history, including:

 

How Do I Get a Vehicle History Report?

Many dealers offer free Carfax reports for the cars they have on their lots. If you want to buy a single report from AutoCheck or Carfax, you can expect to pay between $25 and $40. Both companies offer quantity discounts if you need to check out more vehicles. Other vehicle history report providers offer various levels of information, and some do so at lower prices than the market leaders Carfax and Autocheck. Some lenders will also provide customers with a vehicle history report, as it is in their best interest to ensure that any vehicle they are financing is sufficient collateral for the loan.

Sellers of used cars can benefit from purchasing a vehicle history report on their own vehicle and providing a copy to potential buyers. Not only will it save buyers money, but it’s a sign of good faith that you’re not trying to hide anything about the car’s history.

To get a vehicle history report, you simply fill out an online form and provide the VIN, which is found in the lower corner of the windshield on the driver’s side in most cars. If you are looking at a report from a dealer or a seller, take a look at the car’s VIN to ensure it matches the number on the report.

What’s in a Vehicle History Report?

There are volumes of useful vehicle information in a Carfax or AutoCheck report. Some of it can confirm good news about the vehicle you’re considering, while other information can raise red flags. Not every piece of negative information is necessarily a deal-breaker – some can even help you negotiate a better purchase price.

In the next several sections, we’ll explore what is, and is not, in a Carfax, AutoCheck, or other history report.

Has the Car Been in Any Accidents?

One of the more vital things a vehicle history report can tell you is the vehicle’s accident history. Carfax and other history report providers gather data from state motor vehicle departments (DMVs), insurance companies, collision repair shops, and law enforcement agencies to build a list of serious collisions a car has been in. In many cases,

Report: New Mexico relaxes ban on bike shops

SANTA FE, N.M. (BRAIN) — A local news source is reporting that New Mexico officials have relented and are now allowing bikes shops to operate, under stringent rules, during the state’s COVID-19 response. The state was one of the few remaining in the country where bike service was not allowed to continue under state-wide stay-at-home orders.

The Santa Fe Reporter said the capital city’s mayor reached out to state officials on Wednesday to ask that they clarify whether bike shops could remain open. The Reporter said the governor’s office replied to the mayor and said bike stores can remain open for service but not sales.

Under the new orders, customers can’t enter the bicycle shops, retail sales are banned, payments are to be made by credit card or debit card remotely; customers must leave and pick up bicycles outside the store; and the bikes have to be disinfected before being brought inside. Staff must also wear protective equipment and the stores have to be routinely disinfected,” the governor’s office told the mayor, according to the paper.

Retailers and bike advocates around the state had been lobbying the state to allow bikes shops to stay open without success until Wednesday. The state’s official order on business closures, issued March 23, does not reflect the change.
