Easy to use. Provides a lot of good car history information.
Awesome! Product
Awesome!! Got same information but with much cheaper price
Found rare option from sticker
The badvin window sticker showed that a used Porsche 911 I was looking at had an ultra rare 100L fuel tank option! Seller had no clue. Helped justify paying a bit more for such a unique find.
found out car was in a major accident
Was about to buy a used 2016 Camry but decided to get the badvin report first. Turns out the car had been in a serious crash and was declared a total loss by insurance, even tho carfax showed it as clean! Dodged a bullet on that one. ty badvin
Mejor decodificador VIN
estaba buscando especificaciones para un Toyota RAV4 2018 usado. badvin fue el único servicio que proporcionó todo, hasta los detalles del equipo. muy útil para comparar diferentes listados
Extra peace of mind with window sticker
When shopping for a used Audi Q5, being able to pull up the original window sticker gave me extra peace of mind. It confirmed it had the premium plus package the seller told me about. Even had a pic of the original MSRP which was a nice touch.
Sticker showed lower msrp??
ran my new 2023 kia telluride vin to see the window sticker. to my surprise the msrp was actually $500 less than what i paid! not a huge difference but still dissapointing. at least the rest of the details were right.
Window Sticker Rocks!!
Found my new F-150's original window sticker on badvin, so awesome!! Never seen another site with this info.
I found this we by google search and I…
I found this we by google search and I found so many usefull information and mainly photos how wa the car damaged. This is realy usefull web and on top of this with physical people behind the web. They helped me with registration problem and solved it. I will use this web next time for sure! Thanks Petr
Great for checking specs
Used the BadVin VIN decoder to quickly verify the specs on a classic Camaro I was thinking of buying. Way easier than digging through old manuals and gave me the confidence to go through with the purchase.
Better than free decoders
I tried a few free VIN decoders but they had incomplete or outdated data. Bad Vin has way more comprehensive and accurate info, especially for newer cars. Worth paying for a quality service.
cool site but missing some stickers
badvin has an awesome collection of window stickers but i couldnt find one for my 2017 jeep wrangler. still a neat site though
Discovered prior accident
Bad Vin's vehicle history report showed that the 2018 Audi A4 I was about to buy had been in a major accident that was not disclosed by the seller. The severity analysis helped me avoid a bad purchase. Great service!
So glad I found this!
I had been searching everywhere for the original window sticker for my Porsche 911. BadVIN had it and it even showed the extra options the first owner had added. Incredible resource.
reliable reports for my dealership
As a car dealer importing vehicles from the US to Mexico, I rely on badvin for comprehensive history reports before bidding at auctions. Their info has helped me avoid several salvage vehicles and is more thorough than carfax. A must-have service!
BadVin is great because you get to use…the reports over a whole year.
BadVin is great because you get to use your reports over a full year at a very reasonable price. One of the main things I'm looking for is if the vehicle has ever had a salvage title or been a northern car with rust problems.
Most detailed VIN decoder
i've used other free VIN check services but none provide as much detail as it decoded every option on my 2021 Mercedes C-class. very impressed with the level of data
Worth the price for added peace of mind
After a bad experience buying a used car that turned out to have major issues, I now use Bad VIN to thoroughly check every vehicle i consider. It costs a bit more than other services but the detailed records and photos of past sales are wotrh it for the added peace of mind.
Was given the wrong report!!
Was given the wrong report!!Second try got the right one but was charged for the wrong one also!!!
Highly recommend BADVIN
I'm delighted to share my experience as a satisfied customer of BADVIN. Their vehicle history reports has been a game-changer for me. The informations provided in the reports are comprehensive and accurate, giving me a clear picture of a vehicle's history before making a purchase. I have used both the Basic and Premium reports, and I must say they are worth every pennies. The Premium Report, in particular, with it's full list of events, DMV odometer readings, and maintenance records, exceeded my expectations. The website is user-friendly, and the search process is quick and easy. Thanks to BADVIN, I have avoided potential scams and saved myself from making costly mistakes. I highly recommend BADVIN to anyone looking to buy a used car and wanting to make an informed decision.
Excelente decodificador VIN
El decodificador VIN de badvin proporciona especificaciones detalladas del vehículo e información sobre el equipo de mi BMW Serie 3 2020. Muy útil y fácil de usar.
I purchased my Durango in March 2023
I purchased my vehicle in March 2023, the dealership printed a small Monroney sticker. I wanted more information so searched DuckDuckGo and found a Monroney sticker and vehicle history at BadVin. I am very pleased! I was able to print a full size Monroney for my Durango.
Perfect for classic car research
I was trying to find info on a rare old Lada but couldn't find the details anywhere. Badvin had all the data, even for this obscure model! So glad I found this service, it really helped with my project.
I recently purchased a new 2022 Dodge…
I recently purchased a new Dodge Durango GT Plus, in March 2023, it was a 2022 model (still new on the lot), but it didn't have a Monroney sticker. I used a Duck Duck Go and discovered BADVIN. A few clicks later, and $10 bucks, I had a Monroney sticker for my Durango, and it's history. It had been delivered to a Dodge dealership in Georgia, before finding its way to Midland, Texas! BTW, I am happy with the vehicle, it's a keeper.
I was pleasantly surprised!
I was pleasantly surprised to be able to get the information about my new Durango without having to bug the dealer! For ten bucks, I got what I was looking for!
Saved me from a flooded car
I almost bought a used Honda but luckily checked the BadVin report first. Turned out it had a salvage title from flood damage that the seller didn't disclose. Phew, dodged a huge issue!
cool for research
I know it's meant for car shopping but I love Bad Vin's decoder for looking up specs on classic muscle cars. Was able to get detailed info on engine, tranny and original paint color for a '69 Camaro - waaay easier than digging thru old manuals. Sweet!
Handy for US spec cars
I import American vehicles to the UK and badvin's VIN decoder is perfect for quickly verifying specs. Way easier than trying to track down that info elsewhere.
found original msrp with window sticker
I was curious what my grandfather's 1995 mercedes s500 cost when new but couldn't find the MSRP anywhere online. badvin had the original window sticker tho! crazy it was nearly $100k back then, worth a small fortune now.
Highly recommend
Purchased a badvin report before buying a used Lexus RX 350. It revealed a minor accident the seller hadn't mentioned. I still bought the car but used the info to negotiate a lower price. Well worth the cost for the leverage it gave me!
Such a helpful site for researching…
Such a helpful site for researching vehicles.
This info will win my court case!!!!
This gave me some information that i really needed. I printed a car fax report but it didnt give me what this did. Unfortunately i just found out that my car that i bought a little over 2 weeks ago was bought from the car lot that i just got it from. For only $900 and it said that it had a bad motor. Well i paid $6667.38 for the vehicle and im now taking them to court because it has a bad motor. This report will when my case! Be careful about AS IS car lots. But also know that you still have a chance to get your money back. I hope this review helps people. Stay Blessed and humble always! Good luck!
Stickers for import cars
I import Mercedes and BMWs from the US to Ireland. BadVIN's window stickers let me verify the original specs and MSRP, which helps a ton with customs and pricing. Such a valuable tool for importers.
Most detailed report I have seen
I've tried many vehicle reports but badvin's is by far the most comprehensive. It shows accident photos, past sales, repairs and so much more. I won't buy a car now without getting a report first. It's a must-have.
gREAT resource for buying used cars
As a used car dealer, I rely on for checking every vehicle I'm considering purchasing at auction. The comprehensive reports give me peace of mind and help me avoid problem cars. Photos of past sales have saved me from overpaying many times. Worth every penny!
found original window sticker for my 2019 honda accord!
was so excited to find the original window sticke for my Honda on! It shows all the original features and MSRP which the dealer removed. super helpful for resale and really cool to have.
Essential for any used car purchase
BadVin's vehicle history report is a must-have before buying any used vehicle. It's saved me from a few lemons over the years - cars that looked great on the surface but had hidden issues like accidents or title problems. Well worth the price.
Couldn't have bought my car without it
As a first time used car buyer, I was nervous about getting ripped off. The vehicle report from badvin gave me so much more confidence - it confirmed the car had a clean history and the mileage lined up. Such a relief to have that peace of mind.
Helpful but kinda pricey
Being able to pull up original window sticker was cool to see what a car cost new. Helped a bit with negotiating price on a used lexus. But was kind of expensive just for that. Still glad I tried it but not sure Id pay for again.
Comprehensive vehicle history
I always rely on badvin to check out any used car before I buy. It gives such a complete history, including past accidents, service records, recalls and much more. Feel so much more confident as a used car shopper having this info.
Perfect tool for "OfferUp" buyers
I recently started a side hustle to flip cars I would find on sale on apps such as "Offer-Up". It is very frustrating to not know what is really behind the pictures and description. I am so glad I found "BADVIN" and their services online. With the information I was able to retrieve from their site, I was able to avoid dishonest ads which I would've lost a lot of money on. I will continue to use this service. I especially like the option to see photos of the actual vehicle. It tells a lot about the vehicle's history. I haven't seen any other site compare to "BADVIN"
Found prior rental car
I almost bought a 2019 Malibu that seemed like a great deal - low miles and price. But the badvin report showed it used to be a rental fleet vehicle, which the seller didn't disclose. Glad I found out before buying someone else's abused rental!
Great find for car enthusiasts!
I love looking up the original stickers for different cars on BadVIN. So fascinating to see the original MSRP and options. Their collection is unmatched!
Helps verify imported cars
I use the VIN decoder to check cars I'm importing from the US to Japan. Way easier than deciphering auction sheets and gives me the accurate specs I need.
Saved me from a flooded car
I import used luxury cars from US auctions to resell in Russia. The vehicle history reports from badVIN are essential for avoiding problem cars. For a BMW I was bidding on, it uncovered a salvage title from flood damage that other reports missed! That alone pays for the service.
Gave me wrong truck
Gave me wrong truck. Entered 1 vin number and gave me another truck. Never responded when asked a question on chat.Did eventually respond and I received 1 free report.
Solid service but missing a few things
Overall I like the vin decoder from bad vin. gives you all the key specs & trim details. Only complaint is it didnt have info on a few older cars I looked up, like an 87 CRX. but for most vehicles its quite handy
life saver for a young buyer
As a broke college kid I almost settled for a sketchy 2005 Altima cuz it was cheap. but splurged on the report from badvin 1st. soooo glad I did - turned out it had been totalled and rebuilt. spending a little saved me from wasting $1000s!
Impressive level of detail
I've tried a bunch of different vehicle history reports over the years and has been the most comprehensive by far. Stuff like service records, ownership history, lien and repo info that I haven't found elsewhere. Def go-to resource when shopping for used vehicles now.
great service but pricier than others
Bad Vin reports seem to provide more detailed info and records than the basic Carfax, but they do cost a bit more. Worth it for the extra peace of mind but a little steep if you're on a tight budget
Cheaper and better than Car Fax!
As good or better than Car Fax for much cheaper! Love it! This is my second purchase of a 3-pack!
helped me choose between two cars
I was trying to decide between two used Hyundai Elantras. The BadVIN reports showed one had been in a major accident while the other only had minor damage. Easy decision after seeing that!
wish it covered salvage auctions
I buy rebuilt title cars at copart to fix and resell. was hoping BadVin reports wud have more detail on damage history to help me value cars before bidding, Carfax is better for that. but for clean title vehicles it seems pretty useful
Discovered salvage title vehicle
Report showed a car I was considering had a prior salvage title from a major accident, even though carfax listed it as clean. Messaged seller asking about it and they made shady excuses. Def avoided a scam thanks to badvin!
Impressive level of detail
I recently used Bad VIN to look up a used 2015 Toyota Camry I was considering purchasing. The VIN decoder provided an impressive level of detail about the vehicle's specs, features and equipment. Definitely recommend it.
accident photos saved me $$$$
Was shopping for a used Range Rover and found one that seemed suspiciously cheap. The badVIN report revealed it had been in a major front end collision, with photos showing the damage. Steered clear of that one and saved myself a ton of headaches!!
Report uncovered odometer rollback
Can't believe what badvin found on a used 2012 chevy silverado I almost bought - odometer had been rolled back 50k miles according to the mileage history! Carfax didnt show nething bout that. So glad I checked here first b4 handing over my hard earned $$
Not really sure how I found you
Not really sure how I found you, but all very good information and a fraction of cost of competitors.
Impressed with the detail
badvin made it super easy to pull up the original window sticker for a 2019 Honda Accord I was looking at. It showed all the original features and options. None of the other sites I tried had this level of detail. helped a lot with negotiating the price.
Comprehensive and user-friendly
I find Bad VIN's interface very user-friendly and the info provided in the vin decode is truly comprehensive, including detailed specs, equipment, and even market value estimates. An excellent resource.
seller insisted their 2020 ford f150 had every option and wanted thousands over MSRP. I ran the vin on badvin and pulled the window sticker - proved it was just the base model! told the seller to pound sand.
Useful for checking import cars
I import JDM cars to Australia and use Bad Vin to verify chassis codes and specs. Much easier than trying to translate Japanese auction sheets. Helps a lot with making sure I am bidding on the right models.
accidentally paid for wrong tool
thought i was buyin the full report but only got the decoder instead. contacted support to try n get refund but no response yet been 3 days alredy. decoder works ok but really wanted the full report.
Badvin hat mir geholfen, ein überflutetes Auto zu vermeiden
Ich hätte fast einen 2017 Mercedes-Benz C300 gekauft, bis der Bad Vin-Bericht zeigte, dass er als durch Überschwemmung beschädigt gemeldet wurde. Die detaillierten Schadensaufzeichnungen haben mich vor einem großen Fehler bewahrt!
nice to hav but not essential
Thought itd be cool to see the sticker for an old 90s firebird I bought to restore. bad vin had it which was sweet. I mean u dont NEED the sticker to fix up an old car but its a neat bonus if ur into that stuff
ok if badvin adds accident case numbers it will dominate the industry. Anyone leaving a negative review is just plain stupid. Read these reports, they honestly open doors.
Useful but not perfect
Badvin's VIN decoder is handy for quickly getting the basic details on a vehicle. But it didn't find some of the specs on an older Fiat 500 I was researching. Still a decent tool for most cars though.
Worth the cost.
Used BadVin on the Porsche Cayman S I recently bought. Very helpful.
Hard to find window sticker!
For a used 2018 lexus rx350 i wanted, i was able to uncover the original window sticker super quickly thru BadVin - impressed it had that on a relatively new car. way more detail than the specs on the dealer site. ended up negotiating them down $500 cuz it didnt have some options they claimed!
Outstanding source!!
The only place that I know I can go to get immediate and up to date info about a VIN. Hands down, the best. Badvin and Orto are the only 2 sources I would happily keep paying for their awesome information. The only 2 apps that I will ever need in my auto info toolbox.
Report was missing some info
The Bad VIN report for the car I looked up was pretty detailed but it was missing service records that I know the vehicle had. I still found it helpful overall but it could be more complete.
Amazing service
Amazing service. As a person who was looking to purchase a vehicle fro out of state, they helped me find pictures of damage was not looking to disclose. With the type of damage revealed the vehicle should have been priced for next to nothing but lo and behold they would have got away with it as. Mazda/VW of Hamilton I'm talking about you.
During my search for a BMW M5...
...I found BADVIN while doing a search for a BMW M5. They were able to provide wrecked pics of a car I was considering buying that were NOT included in the AD. Shocker, right? Well worth the nominal cost for their service to have avoided a bad buy! Thanks BV!
Simple and fast
Needed to quickly look up the engine size on a '98 Civic for my buddy's project car. Bad Vin made it wicked easy to get those deets in like 10 seconds. other free sites were mad slow but this was quick.
Muy. Bien
Muy bueno excelente mente biwn

useful for checking imports
I import cars from usa to eastern europe and use badvin to check every vehicle. The detailed equipment lists help me confirm specs for customers. very useful service
Very 😊
Very happy with service Very fast to get the vehicle report
Found sticker for vintage restoration
I was restoring a classic Fiat 124 Spider and wanted the original specs. Badvin's sticker showed all the details from color to engine size. Such a help for accurately restoring vintage cars!
Excellent service and customer-centric…
Excellent service and customer-centric company. The reports were very informative.
Super easy to use
Badvin's vin decoder is so simple and straightforward - just type in the vin and all the important details pop up instantly. Engine size, fuel economy, safety features and a bunch more. Great tool for comparing different models when car shopping.
Awesome for researching car history
I'm a huge Porsche nerd and love digging into the details on older models. The vin decoder from Badvin makes it so quick to pull up the original specs. Killer resource for any car geek trying to learn about neat rides.
It works fine..

Cool idea but not perfect
Was excited to look up sticker for my new BMW but badVIN didnt have the exact options rite like the sport package. Still showed original MSRP tho which was neat. Hopefully theyll keep adding more data to make it better
nice service

Still waiting for the vehicle information
Autocheck raised their rates
Autocheck raised their rates, so we went to Carfax. Carfax raised their rates so we looked again.BADVIN.ORG had the most comprehensive information out of all the other sites we checked. They don't have all the information that the other two have, but they do have a combination of information.Their pricing is fantastic and info is quite accurate and up to date. I have no plans on ever going back to the others.We now use BADVIN.ORG exclusively and will definitely be passing their name on. (Just not to my competitors). : )
I Love This Service!
I Love This Service!I use Badvin all the time for my work in investigating car purchases for clients. I find the information to typically be more complete than CarFax or AutoCheck alone--the information tends to be a combination of both of those services. Buying one report is obviously more cost effective than buying two. Also, you never get the level of auction detail from CarFax or Autocheck as Badvin provides. Access to the auction price and sale date, as well as photos (when available) is invaluable when trying to determine whether a car is worth the price asked.
I would have liked to have seen the…
I would have liked to have seen the auction price.. but I did receive good info.
Standard Carfax Alternative
I love the idea I can see what a car was purchased for from dealer to dealer. Unfortunately, I received the same information we get from a standard carfax report. None the less, I don't think it was worth the $9.99 I paid for the Badvin report.
mor then i was expecting
mor then i was expecting, excellent
First time using this site
First time using this site. Much better and less expensive than CARFAX. More information also. Highly recommended, will use again.
I’m always hesitant ordering anything online and this time was no exception. I’ve had bad experiences before ordering vehicle reports and trying to save a few bucks by not using Carfax which to me is a ripoff $34+
In the past with the cheaper ($20 and under), I was ALWAYS disappointed with the very limited information. I always check out the companies online reviews, but again, WHO can you believe anymore. When it came to reading the reviews for BADVIN, they were all over the place too but I still needed a report so I took a chance.
Was I ever happy when the report came in it had ALL the information I was looking for but I was especially happy with the vehicle history and ownership history. For the $9.99 I paid (I only ordered one report so I didn’t get the $4.99 rate) all I can say is that from now on BADVIN (I hate the misleading name, but LOVE the company) is my one and ONLY source for any future reports. Rest assure they are a reputable source for your vin lookups.
I appreciate this website so much
I appreciate this website so much. I bought the vehicle that I looked up in the report back in May 2021 from GoIndy Automotive in Indianapolis, Indiana. I paid 32.5k. I was looking for the vehicle description and I knew that there was some language in it that wasn't present when I looked on the website after I bought it. I had no leg to stand on but your website brought back information that I was able to confirm. This vehicle broke down 10 days after I bought it, but the website did boast a warranty on the vehicle. However, on the paperwork, they asked me if I wanted to buy a warranty and I said no. I was under the impression that I was covered in the event something happened soon after but apparently, I was wrong. Thank you so much for what you guys do!
WAY BETTER than other VIN reports!
Compared to the other VIN reports, is INCREDIBLE! I have never seen so much information for one vehicle. Every service, every sale, etc. BADVIN is definitely my goto source moving forward!
