Re: Understanding A VIN Report: A Detailed Explanation by Charles86: 6:51pm On Jul 03, 2012
Is there anything wrong if the title of a car is blue in colure? pls kindly help me to check dis VIN 4T1BG22K0XU527422
Novice1: Great work Inspired.

Fact is, to buy a blue title vehicle in the the US, import it into Nigeria and clear it paying all the legal dues, you cant sell that vehicle at prevaiing market prices and make a profit.

Additionally, some damaged/collision vehicles can be rebuilt to near-pristine situations.

Is there anything a buyer could make out of a Nigerian used car from the VIN? If i want to buy a used car and collected the VIN, is the VIN of any use again when the said car has been used in Nigeria? Please i need your answer seriously.
Thanks

Its Not Compulsory to Check VIN for Nigerian Used Vehicles But It is Strongly Advisable.

Only vehicles Bought Brand New in Nigeria are totally Exempted from Vin report checks.

The Owner Might want to sell cos of problems emanating from previous Incidents, As long as it was Imported Used, Its advisable to check the VIN.

What is the implication of the car being a slavage title but absolutely no reason is given?
The autocheck report says that there is no record of an accident neither was it stolen but it has a salvage title.
