I just did about 20 some reports based on this and it worked great! Thanks for fixing the link! I have folders in my files for all past vehicles and close family member's vehicles, so I did them all. Interesting, I'm actually the fourth owner of my Ex, and here I thought all along that I was the third. I'm happy to see though that of all of the vehicles I ran (oldest was a 1992), they all seem to be on the road still. Only questionable one was the '96 Explorer, hit an embankment in 2010 and overturned with moderate damage, but it doesn't seem like it was totaled. I ran it for the Navigator and Blackwood that my steering wheels came from, and it came up invalid, so apparently when a vehicle is totaled, the report won't run? I'm very happy to see that our first '98 Navigator now has 185k on it in California and the second '00 now has about 123k in NC.
Thanks jrings, I tried upper and lower case letters multiple times. Apparently it doesn't like my VIN.
The only times I've had this not work when running VIN checks like using methods like this is when the vehicle in question has a "dirty" title. Dealers typically do not want vehicles with problem titels to show on their public websites-they would rather get you in there and try to "sell" it to you. I've checked a few vehicles using methods like this in the past,and the ones that I knew had title issues have always gotten that error.
