Buying a junk car or the one with a tampered odometer reading is overpaying, buying a stolen vehicle means getting into trouble with the police and having the vehicle seized when the truth is discovered.

Many of them may have various other “bad” titles (odometer rollback, total loss, lemon, etc). Having all this information in one report is very convenient.

This means that if the vehicle has a title not included in the report, the company obliges to buy the vehicle back from you.
