Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Other (requires explanation) I feel if the information was false they should replace my car

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/10/17) */ We give each customer a Carfax history report as a courtesy. We can not guarantee any information that they (Carfax)provides as they are a third party and not affiliated with us in any way. Which is why you signed the statement of facts stating that. Also, the vehicle did go to a Mercedes Dealer for an multi point inspection and not to a paint shop. Each vehicle is sold as is and we can not guarantee prior history as we were not the previous owner. Carfax is just a guide and if there was a prior accident, if Carfax did not get a report of it, it won't show up. You may want to contact Carfax since they gave you the information. Thanks, CCCPAA
