eBay Motors is attempting to give used-car buyers a little more peace of mind when purchasing used cars online by offering vehicle history reports through Experian's AutoCheck service.

The AutoCheck report includes information such as frame-damage announcements, major flood damage, and odometer rollback issues. Additionally, the report will include a vehicle history score, which summarizes all the information in a vehicle's history in a numerical score (on a scale from 1-100) that is quick and easy to understand.

We took a look at a few sample vehicle history reports for randomly selected listings and found title history information, a history of reported odometer readings with dates, detailed vehicle use history (useful for learning if the vehicle you're about to buy used to be a rental car), and a full chronological vehicle history for the cars' VIN.

eBay vehicle history reports are currently available for free on all listings for used vehicles no older than the 1981 model year.
