The National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) is an electronic system that contains information on certain automobiles titled in the United States. NMVTIS is intended to serve as a reliable automobile source of title and brand history. It does not contain detailed information regarding a vehicle's accident repair or other history.
All states, insurance companies, and junk and salvage yards are required by federal law to regularly report information to NMVTIS. Some states are not yet providing their vehicle data to the system, so information is not available for all vehicles in the United States. The data states provide to NMVTIS is provided in a variety of time frames. While some states report and update NMVTIS data in "real-time,” other states send updates less frequently.
The information in NMVTIS INCLUDES:
- Information from participating state motor vehicle titling agencies;
- Information about automobiles, buses, trucks, motorcycles, recreational vehicles, motor homes, and tractors. NMVTIS may not include commercial vehicles if those vehicles are not included in a state is primary database for title records (in some states, those vehicles are managed by a separate state agency), although these records may be added at a later time;
- Most recent odometer reading in the state's title record;
- Information from insurance companies, and auto recyclers, including junk and salvage yards, that is required by law to be reported to the system, as of March 31, 2009. This information will include if the vehicle was determined to be a "total loss" by an insurance carrier;
- Information on "brands" that participating state motor vehicle titling agencies apply to vehicles. Brand types and definitions vary by state, but may provide useful information about the condition or prior use of the vehicle;
- Information from junk and salvage yards receiving a "cash for clunker" vehicle traded-in under the Consumer Assistance to Recycle and Save Act of 2009 (CARS) Program.
We provide vehicle information from the auto auctions’ database that may include photographs and vehicle details that were available to the public in the auto auctions’ websites when this vehicle was on sale there. Auction Records Report and the auto auction records in the Vehicle History Report are available only in case if this vehicle has ever been on sale at auto auctions since June, 2007 to present time, but the information on some vehicles may be unavailable.
Vehicle information from the VinInspect Auto Auction Records Report and from the auto auction records in the VinInspect Vehicle History Report is provided "as is" from the auto auctions database. We do not guarantee that the vehicle has not been on sale at an auto auction if there are no auto auction records in the report or no Auto Auction Records Reports available for the vehicle. We do not guarantee or warranty that the Auto Auction Records Report and auto auction records will be available on a specific vehicle and do not guarantee that the information from the Auto Auction Records Report and Vehicle History Report is accurate, comprehensive, verified or complete, and shall not assume or accept any liability (whether in negligence or otherwise) for the accuracy or completeness of such information or for any reliance placed by any person on the information. We do not guarantee the availability of the vehicle photographs in the report.
It is not our obligation to advise anyone of any error in provided information, and we will not be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, business or other consequential loss) which may arise from any use of, or reliance upon, or inability to access, the information from the VinInspect Auto Auction Records Report and the VinInspect Vehicle History Report.
YOU ASSUME ALL RISKS IN USING ANY DATA IN THIS REPORT. WE MAKE NO GUARANTY OR WARRANTY, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY WARRANTY OR MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WITH RESPECT TO THE DATA PRESENTED IN THIS REPORT.
NVS Data Disclaimer
The ultimate source of lien information provided in the VinInspect Vehicle History Report is pulled from the database of the National Vehicle Service (NVS). Not all lien holders and jurisdictions report to NVS. Records from NVS may be incomplete. Although every effort is made to insure the accuracy of transmission and data, we provide the reports "as is." The lien data may not be complete and will not have information on all vehicles. As such, a lien record may not be available in a Vehicle History Report or may be incomplete. We make no warranty, expressed or implied, as to the validity of the data. Other than that, data provided is a true and correct reproduction of the NVS data.
Every VinInspect Vehicle Inspection Report and the information they contain is based upon the inspections and opinions of the individual or individuals (the “Inspector” or the “Inspectors”) who process your order and complete the report alone. None of the Inspectors are experts in any field. They are not professional photographers. Photographs contained in your VinInspect Vehicle Inspection Report may differ from those that a professional photographer would take. Your personal inspections and opinions might differ from those contained in your VinInspect Vehicle Inspection Report.
We do not check ownership or title of any vehicle. Your VinInspect Vehicle Inspection Report should not be considered a recommendation that you should or should not bid on or purchase a vehicle, nor should it be the sole basis upon which you might make any important decision. We do not perform appraisals or issue value opinions of any kind, and any such information contained in your VinInspect Vehicle Inspection Report should be not be relied upon for any purpose unless we specifically agree in writing otherwise at the time you place your order.
Only the most basic functions which the seller chooses to demonstrate will be observed. VinInspect does not perform test drives. While the Inspector may ask the seller to demonstrate that the vehicle is in basic working order, the Inspector is not an expert and will not perform any tests.

Our free Vehicle Recalls Check allows you to identify an open recall on a specific vehicle instantly. Simply enter the year, make, and model of the vehicle. Recall information is provided "as is" from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ("NHTSA”). NHTSA documents and tracks both types of auto recalls. With the exception of those involving tires, recalls are in effect for the lifetime of a vehicle and must be remedied at no cost to consumers under federal law. Vehicles identified with open recalls should be taken to an authorized dealer to be repaired. The information provided on vehicle recalls is for information purposes only. We do not guarantee the accuracy, comprehensiveness, or completeness of such information. We shall not assume or accept any liability (whether in negligence or otherwise) for the accuracy or completeness of such information or for any reliance placed by any person on the information. We shall not be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, business or other consequential loss) that may arise from any use of, or reliance upon, or inability to access, the information. We shall not be under any obligation to advise any person of any error in information provided.
If you are presented with vehicle recall information and have a question, contact your vehicle's manufacturer or the NHTSA's Auto Safety Hotline at 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).
c) Our website features a complimentary Auto Auction Check. We do not guarantee that the vehicle has not been on sale at an auto auction if there is no auto auction records found by the Auto Auction Check.You will instantly be provided information regarding whether a vehicle has ever been on sale at auto auctions when you enter its VIN into our VIN Decoder. Once our VIN Decoder has verified the VIN, you can get one free vehicle photo from the auto auction database. The photo selected is chosen by random from the photo collection available for this vehicle in the auto auctions’ database. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that this photo will show the damaged part of the vehicle.
