    I just ran my one free check on my K5. It says it was involved in 1 accident in 1996. It says my "Total Loss Check" is ok. To bad it is now on a salvage title and has been since I wrecked it in 1999.

    Looks like they are missing some info on my truck, and they are not all they are cracked up to be.

    Yeah I do agree that they aren't the greatest but it does beat nothing at all.

    FYI, if you want more than one report. Each time you get a report delete your Temporary Internet Files.

    For those of you who need help
    1. click on "tools" (Top of screen)
    2. click on "internet options"
    3. click on "settings"
    4. click on "view files"
    5. click on "edit" (top of that screen)
    6. click on "select all"
    7. click on "delete"

    Then your all set for another car

    I thought the same. I bought my 96 Ram brand new and I got T-boned 2 months later. A dealership repaired the bed side and there was no mention of anything!

    It keeps telling me I didn't fill something out, I put in my vin as it appears on my registration so I don't get it. If I add like 3 or 4 numbers to my vin it just says it doesn't have any info on my vehicle. But if I put in my real vin it gives me an error, what a wonderful thing /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I tired a 91 firebird we have and a 2002 ford, as well as my 84 K5. My K5 was the only one that didn't work. It seemed like it thought my vin number was too short

    I just ran my 86 IROCZ and it worked for me, but for my 78 Jimmy it says that theres a field missing and needs to be filled out. Guess they dont go back that far.

    thats what it says for my 84 k5, oh well, I think my k5 was in an accident once and I would like to know but it doesn't matter all that much, I can tell by the krinkled radiator support but hey everything bolts on and looks normal so whatever.
