Carfax is a vehicle history report. Nothing to do with certification. A carfax only lists some of the history of the car which has been reported.

A car actually can be "carfax certified", but carfax and the certification work independently of one another. A "certified" pre- owned vehicle is a vehicle that has been serviced and checked out by the manufacturer and deemed to be in "new car condition" by the manufacturer themselves. Such a vehicle will have a clean history report, but also receives a check mark by the manufacturer of the car that even though it is used, it has been thoroughly inspected. CARFAX does not certify vehicles, however, you can go to www.carfax.com and search for vehicles on their site. When you are looking for vehicles on their site and come across a vehicle that is a certified pre-owned vehicle, since you are searching through Carfax's service, they refer to the vehicle listed as "Carfax Certified".
