But sir I was rated 18 by same site and my Toyota Camry Gough never had issue since 2013, used for 2 years on reaching naija before I buy it, check light shown n culprit was egr which I bought and changed then no issue, I use Mobil 1 and total 5w40 if no Mobil available and use oando atf dex ii for trans. Still waxing strong till now

Send me the full report or VIN for me to see its content. Lots of things could cause low rating ranging from it being once reported stolen and the likes.


But the Lexus we are talking about here had 2 accidents, had its transmission overhauled/repaired, was awarded non-repairable title and was sold for 1,600$ on copart which are the factors for its low score.

The case of yours could be different! !!

Hello Sir.

To understand the AutoCheck score one has to consider the total history of the vehicle. Factors that influence the score include the title, number of previous owners, accidents and their severity, Liens, specific use such as Taxi and Livery use, odometer readings, service history, and a lot more.

The score should also be understood in the context of the average range. The raw score is specific to the vehicle in the report, but the range is for millions of other similar marque and model, example,

Your vehicle's current score is 18, but the range is 23 - 45.
In comparison, the 2007 Lexus ES 350 scored 35, but the average range for millions of other similar 2007 Lexus ES 350 was 73 - 86

Your vehicle raw score (18), while lower than that of the Lexus (35), is closer to the overall Camry average (23 - 45)

The Lexus score (35) while higher than that of your Camry, is much lower then the overall Lexus average (73 - 86). Taking into account the other parts of the history, the Lexus appears in poorer condition than the Camry

The specific AutoCheck score of a vehicle as well as the range will continue to fall over time to account for the overall fall in the general condition of vehicles as they get older

Your Toyota Camry was manufactured in 1998, 20 years ago, and shipped from the USA in 2013, 5 years ago. Both the raw AutoCheck score and the range would have been higher back in 2013

The Lexus ES was manufactured in 2007, 11 years ago, and shipped in 2017, 1 year ago. In 5 years, both the raw score and the average would have fallen

The history is one aspect of the condition of a vehicle. Thorough physical inspection is always strongly recommended after the history report. Maintenance and service habits will also contribute to the performance and condition of a vehicle.

That is misunderstanding coming from you; I never said that your car is a stolen one but used that to cite example of one of those things
that could cause low rating.

Please go through what I said properly and analyse it with positive mindset.

Lest I forget, happy new year to everyone in here!

I will keep you updated on this issue; my money(over 1.9M) is still in the air while the vehicle has been with the dealer to dispose

as Nigerian used. He said it is when he sells it that he will give me 1.1M(I already counted the loss and as well learnt the lessons) out of the sold

price which is usually between the range of 2M to 2.2M.

Lol! It is the dealer's car not mine; he is in charge of the selling but said he will be giving me 1.1M back.

Remember I paid him 1.5M and spent over 400k on the car which means the lost on my part is say 800k.

You know that price of the Nigeria used of such vehicle ranges between 2M to 2.2M! !!

You too should have come straight because I was thinking you have come again with your usual mocking style.

I've called him this afternoon and he said that he has sold it although he said he replaced the transmission before selling it.
