Carfax Partners with Pep Boys to Expand Service History Database

Maintenance records from all locations now available in Carfax Vehicle History Reports.

Carfax has partnered with Pep Boys to better inform used car buyers and sellers about a vehicle’s maintenance history. Detailed records for service and repairs performed at any Pep Boys location are now included on Carfax Vehicle History Reports. Using the unique 17-character vehicle identification number (VIN) found on vehicle dashboards and title documents, Carfax instantly generates a detailed Vehicle History Report on any used car or light truck.

“We are pleased to partner with Carfax to provide this important information,” said Pep Boys’ Senior Vice President of Corporate Development Joe Cirelli. “Our service work order data helps create a virtual glove box of a vehicle’s routine maintenance and repair service history, vital information to assist used car sellers in marketing their cars.”

Carfax is adding millions of service records from all Pep Boys locations to its database. Carfax Reports display the name, location and contact information of each Pep Boys store that performed the service. Potential owners see routine maintenance details, such as oil changes and tune-ups, along with more extensive information like brake repair or tire replacement, when available.

“Proper maintenance is key to any used car sale as well as retaining vehicle value,” said Gerry Bayer, vice president of Carfax. “Working with Pep Boys, we’ve greatly expanded the service information in the Carfax database. Combined with other important information available in Carfax Reports, such as mileage readings, ownership history and branded titles, used car shoppers can buy with even greater confidence.”
