Regarding the Carfax/Facebook Marketplace integration, A free Carfax Vehicle History Report is visible to users whenever a Facebook Marketplace inventory provider who is also partnered with Carfax posts a dealer’s vehicles. Also, car buyers on Facebook Marketplace can filter search results by details shown in the Carfax Vehicle History Report.
For each listing with Carfax Snapshot, the most important vehicle history features for each listing are viewable for those in the market for a used car. With this feature, users can get quick details on a given vehicle's history, and that is available without the need to access the full Vehicle History Report.
In addition to the ability to include data points such as any reported accidents, damage and damage severity information, Carfax Snapshot can also provide open recall data, the last reported odometer reading and the type of vehicle use. Personal, fleet or rental are examples of type of vehicle use.
Carfax Snapshot can also provide a vehicle's number of owners and reported service history, and in addition, it can provide unique indicators for well-maintained and certified pre-owned vehicles.
