If you have a wreck or major mechanical repair and fix it yourself, it doesn’t show up on carfax either. The last car I sold had quite a bit of front end damage when I hit a pig, I fixed it myself and it wasn’t on car fax. The car I have now has obviously had the rear bumper replaced (doesn’t quite match) and it had a clear car fax, most people would never notice the replaced bumper, but I’m the sunlight almost everyone I show can see it.

I wouldn’t pay for or trust a car fax report, I trust my own senses much better.

Anytime an owner moves to another state and titles it in that new state CarFax records it as a new owner as they are following the VIN not the person.


Not true. I moved from NY to KY and back to NY, re-titling the burb both times and the Carfax shows as one owner.

When my parents had their 05 Duramax truck my dad said the last fear years they owned it every once in a while someone would approach him and asked if he wanted to sell his truck. Fast forward and they now have a much nicer truck a '16 Duramax for ~ 4 years now and no one has asked if he would sell it.

You can buy a 2016 or late model Duramax anywhere. However a 2005 worth buying will be a little harder to find. Naturally if you spot a 2005 you may inquire about it, however there is no need to inquire about a 2016.
The fact that your parents decided to upgrade to the 2016 shows what they think of the 2005. Like most they wanted an improved truck.
There can be a lot of improvements in 11 years.

I would love to have an old 94-98 12 valve Cummins with a manual trans as a toy, but not as a main vehicle. Of course it would be no where near stock and north of 500 hp.

I get why someone would be happy to find a nice old vehicle to save money, but can't for the life of me figure out why anyone would pay that kind of money for an out dated, stinky, noisy, relatively underpowered one. Different strokes I guess.

I get your point but a PSD Excursion is a unique vehicle.
While I agree it is not worth the price listed there is really nothing on the market to compare it to.
