Default Carfax for snowmobiles?

Is there a carfax for sleds or a way to find the history of a sled? Have a buddy thatís interested in a sled that has extremely low miles for the age itís in. He talked to the seller on the phone and said seller seemed awful shady. I was with him and he called the seller back and was sent to VM and the greeting of seller sounded like a cocky douche. Deal sounds to good to be true, I have the ViN of the sled and didnít know if a guy could run a history report on the sled.

google the vin number. Its not a sure thing, but if it was ever listed for sale by a dealer in the past there is a good chance it will come up. If it was ever totaled, they often go to an auction site and you might find info that way.

Good ideas in prior post.
On a broader basis, with all of us doing so much of our own work, on sleds leave no tracks to follow. Cars are less likely to escape Carfax records, but it happens.n I bought a vehicle with a clean Carfax from the owner of an aircraft mntc company that also painted planes. A year later, I had the front bumper cover off to install tow hooks and found the bumper had a Denver dealer label on it. No wonder it was such a shiny vehicle. Later, turned up an ac leak most likely related to a front end crash.

Used sleds aren't exactly hard to find, particularly in the off season....if the dude seems shady or unpleasant, I would just move along.

Carfax is only good if the repairs are reported, and Carfax has updated. people pay cash for repairs all the time (not reported to Carfax). body shops are not required to inform Carfax of repairs. some insurance companies do not report Carfax repairs. take the report with a grain of salt. look the auto/sled bike over personally, with a fine tooth comb, trust no one! one thing that has come up since Carfax is, getting the auto repaired, and IMMEDIATELY selling the auto before the Carfax is updated. shows clean, could have 10,000 in repairs. buyer beware.
