Why are there so many dealer cars on this web that are fraudulent?

Asked by May 16, 2014 at 12:07 AM about the 2011 Nissan Versa 1.6 Base

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

About 1/2 of the vehicles I search on this web page from dealers in Georgia, wind up
having VIN results that either indicate frame damage or odometer discrepancy or both.  
The dealers are not disclosing this information on any of their adds.

Check this VIN for instance which is posted by one of the dealers on your web page
3N1BC1CP1BL361597.  The AutoCheck VIN report indicates This car has frame damage
28 Apr 2014, however the dealer does not disclose this in their add.  This is just one of
many Versa, Matrix, and Camry vehicles which I found the same issue with

I believe it may be an unintended consequence to all the title loan shops in Georgia. They move lots of card through auction houses. Just a guess

Why? To make money. That's why your are doing your due diligence to find reputable dealers. It's hard finding a good used car from a fair dealership, that's why I always say to do your research before you put down a big chunk of money on a vehicle. When you do find that seller that you can trust, give them some business.

With these types of deception allowed to be openly advertised to fraud and deceive the public, I have no reliance in the data provided here to be anything but fraudulent. Therefore its simply a waste of time to even consider this web site for vehicle searches.
