You can choose either one. Personally speaking from experience on these, Autocheck report's has more detailed info than Carfax

Carfax is a joke. A few years back I ran a Carfax on my thrice totaled 1993 Honda Accord.

All green checkmarks.

I ran another on my 1985 Jeep CJ that had been in two accidents on the road, AND had also had a full rollover off road.

All green checkmarks on that one too.

Wouldn't trust Carfax anymore than I would a greasy used car salesman saying "Yep, it's in perfect shape with no problems!"

No experience with autocheck.

When I went to buy some CarFax reports 2 yrs ago they cost me $60 for three. Ended up not using the other 2. No one wanted them for free.

The Accord was filed with my insurance company when it was wrecked....more than once. Still all green checkmarks. I was a teenager, missed a curve in the road, driving too fast, skipped it across a swamp. Ended up being submerged in about waist deep water for several hours.

All green check marks........
