Anybody with a carfax or autocheck acct?

Yeah, this thing has been beaten way past death but I'll ask anyway. If anybody's got an active carfax or autocheck account, would you do me the honors and run a VIN for me? Looking at a vehicle at a dealership I haven;t dealt with before and only one person I know of that has. Good remarks from that person, but I'd still like to make sure. Let me know either in the thread or pm and I'll dig out the VIN.

Thanks in advance to anyone that helps me out.

Well, if you really want to know. We traded in my wife's sebring last January and got her a 2006 Ion 2 manual. I love driving it and miss driving stick daily. Its tough finding stick shifts around here. Besides, I don't really need a bigger car for a daily driver, and it'd be nice to average 30 MPG instead of 23-24 like I am now. Anyway I found this:


2005 Chevrolet COBALT $10,888.00 VIN: 1G1AK52F357582132
Stock #: 582132
Miles: 18,883
Exterior Color: Black
Interior Color: Gray
5 Speed Manual, Fuel Injected, 4 Cyl., 2.2, 4 Dr Sedan

Claycomb Auto Sales
4795 Route 233
Westmoreland, NY 13490

Its a close cousin to an Ion. The mileage is low and the price is also. It books about $1500 ish higher on KBB. I did some comparisons between his prices and KBB values and everything I tried was under book. On his front page it mentions a 5yr/100K warranty included. I wonder if its included in that price, which puts it ever farther under book value since you can easily spend $1500 on a warranty.

My trep has been virtually trouble-free. The oil light flicker, no biggie. New pads and rotors all 4 corners I did last summer, new tires, slight seepage at the pan, an idler pulley (and probably the other one soon), new belts, and now a burned out dash bulb. So its been a dam good car, but I'm running up the mileage in a hurry. I bought it in May 2004 with 48K and its Jan 07 where I'm closing in on 93K. Besides that, I'm like $2700 upside down on it if I trade it. At least if I see a deal like this where its under book, I might catch up with that negative equity sooner than the remaining 2 1/2 years on the current loan.

I don't want anyone thinking I'm selling out but if I find a good deal, I'm making a deal. No matter what though, I'm sticking around here. I wouldn't have anything better to do at work if it weren't for this site!
