Info on a car fax

Asked by Sep 08, 2016 at 10:47 AM about the 2005 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL 500

Question type: General

The car fax shows gaps in this cars history.  Between  11/27/07, sold at auction,
and 5/23/08, passed inspection.  Six months.
Between 5/23/08 and 12/15/10 nothing.  Two and one half years then new
owner reported.  My question is how can a car disappear for three years?

257,755

Car didn't disappear per se, just that nothing was recorded during that time. Not everything get reported to Carfax.
