CarFax was founded in 1984 in Columbia, Missouri, by Ewin Barnett III and Robert Daniel Clark. At the time, Barnett was working with the Missouri Automobile Dealers Association to try to fight odometer fraud on used cars. He collected data on approximately 10,000 vehicles and provided this information to automotive sellers.
Today, CarFax provides information on vehicles to both dealers and individuals, via their website or mobile phone app, with a database of more than 15 billion vehicles in the US and 10 providences in Canada. The company provides a wide range of information, including odometer readings, accidents, recall information, original owner, date sold, location(s) where vehicles were bought and sold, as well as repairs done by dealers.
In 1999, the company became a subsidiary of Information Technology Services. The company recently introduced an app where customers can keep track of their vehicle maintenance, as well as be reminded when maintenance needs to be performed.
