Powerful, although expensive

It is like a car fax report in your pocket. 5 stars if it were affordable for people who are actively looking to buy a new car. Nobody could afford 10 bucks per report per car you are interested in.

A lifesaver!

I found this app at just the right time. I was this close to buying a used car on Craigslist when I thought I should do a little quick research on it. I looked it up in iCarCheck only to discover it had been in a major accident and had a large part of the frame replaced, and the owner had no intention of telling me! This app saved me thousands, highly recommended!

A Must Have iPhone Application!

If you are in the market to buy or even sell your car this is a must have! This can prevent you from buying a lemon and save you tons of money on repairs. This is a must have iPhone app for parents who are looking to buy a used car for new teen drivers. Highly recommend this iPhone application.
