Consumer Guide Selects Experian's AutoCheck as Exclusive Source of Vehicle History Reports

February 21, 2007

Schaumburg, Ill. – Experian Automotive's AutoCheck was selected as the exclusive vehicle history report for Consumer Guide Automotive, an online source of new- and used-car reviews.

The Consumer Guide Automotive Web site, http://ConsumerGuideAuto.HowStuffWorks.com, now features Experian Automotive’s AutoCheck vehicle history report. The AutoCheck report provides car buyers with quick access to the history of a used vehicle, revealing possible undisclosed or unknown problems that can affect an automobile’s safety and resale value.

“Buying a used vehicle is one of the largest purchases a person can make, and consumers are searching online for the best information possible before making that purchase,” said Mark Westlake, executive vice president of sales and content for HowStuffWorks.com, the online publisher of Consumer Guide Automotive. “Combining Experian’s AutoCheck reports with the more than 150 years of combined experience from our expert, in-house editorial staff gives our online visitors the comprehensive and up-to-date information they need to make the best possible buying decision.”

Previously, Consumer Guide Automotive offered a proprietary vehicle history report which utilized Experian’s extensive vehicle data on over half a billion vehicles. This new partnership not only gives Consumer Guide Automotive readers access to Experian’s vehicle history information, but also provides them with AutoCheck Buyback Protection, protecting consumers against major hidden title brands on AutoCheck Assured vehicles.

“Combining AutoCheck’s vehicle history reports with Consumer Guide’s renowned reviews and resources will no doubt prove an invaluable asset to today’s discerning used vehicle shopper,” said Scott Waldron, president of Experian Automotive. “Powered by Experian’s National Vehicle Database, AutoCheck vehicle history reports allow for quick and easy checking of a vehicle’s history to show if it has been previously reported as a lemon or has sustained major flood damage, frame damage, or odometer rollback issues, along with other key information.”
