New app reveals real car info

2013-05-08 16:51

A new smartphone application that provides the value and status of a vehicle has been launched by TransUnion Auto Information Solutions, South Africa’s "leading provider of information solutions for the automotive industry".
It allows users to access a database and get values and other identification and verification information for specific vehicles.


Consumers download the free CarValue app to their smartphone, register once, and use a credit card to buy a valuation report and/or verification report.

Alternatively, you can log on to this website for the same information.

Since the app became available, TransUnion says, it has seen a number of users improve their car-buying decisions. For example, one reported finding a possible purchase was two years older than the seller claimed.
