    This report will contain the following information where available:

    • Accident History
      The report contains a comprehensive overview of the vehicle's accident history, including any malfunctions, collisions, airbag deployments, thefts, fire damage, water/flood damage, hail damage, or other natural disasters. Shockingly, over 20% of Japanese imported vehicles have a history of one or more collisions.
    • Odometer History
      Additionally, our report includes information about the vehicle's odometer history, such as wind backs, excessive usage, and other potential problems. However, it's important to note that the availability of the complete odometer history may be limited for older vehicles.
    • Contamination Risks
      We also provide information about potential contamination risks, such as whether the vehicle has been used in a contaminated region or failed the contamination test, including radioactive contamination.
    • Commercial Usage
      Our report also indicates whether the vehicle has been used for commercial purposes, such as a police car, taxi, rental, etc.
    • Recalls
      Our report also covers any recalls the vehicle may have had and the reason for the recall, such as the Takata airbag recall.
    • Average Market Price and Safety Ratings

    Please keep in mind that some parts of the report are sourced from the Japanese government during Japanese working hours using human operators. Therefore, the collection of the report can take up to one Japanese business day. You will be notified by email once the report is ready.
