AutoCheck Score

What is AutoCheck Score?

Only AutoCheck vehicle history reports include the AutoCheck Score, a tool that enables you to understand a vehicle's past quickly and easily, compare it to other vehicles, and lower the risk of buying a vehicle with undetected problems.

Your vehicle's history can affect your vehicle's AutoCheck Score. Factors that can negatively influence the Score include:

Think of the AutoCheck Score as a rating summarizing the longer list of report data. Paired with the AutoCheck Score Range, the AutoCheck Score allows you to quickly compare vehicles of similar age and class. View a sample AutoCheck Score tile below:

What does the AutoCheck Score mean?

The Score is based on a scale of 1 to 100, but it's very important to read the Score in conjunction with the Score Range, since looking at the Score without knowing the range will only reveal half the story. Review the example below:

Car #1

Car #2

1999 Nissan Maxima

2005 Chevrolet Malibu

Score: 84

Score: 89

Score Range: 76-81

Score Range: 90-95

In this example, Car #1 has a lower Score than Car #2. However, take a look at the Score Ranges. For Car #1, other comparable 1999 Nissan Maximas should fall into a range from 76 to 81, but this car scored an 84. That means the car has a more favorable vehicle history (with regard to the Score factors listed above) compared to other similar cars of the same make and model.

Car #2 has a Score of 89. Because this is higher than Car #1's Score, you might assume this car has a more favorable vehicle history, but that's not entirely accurate. Comparable 2005 Chevy Malibus should score in a range from 90 to 95, and this car falls short. That means the car's history is less favorable when compared to other similar cars of the same make and model.

The AutoCheck Score is based on a number of key factors, including:
