CARFAX Risk Factor Statistics for imported Chevrolets from the US
CARFAX Statistics show that the risk factors for Chevrolet include recall, junk title, and flood damage cars.
There are many cars on European roads that have open recalls. A recall can be issued by a manufacturer for any number of reasons. Some are fairly straightforward, while others can be for potentially dangerous reasons. General Motors had the highest number of manufacturer recalls in 2014, with an unprecedented 28 million vehicles affected in America alone. There have been at least 22,778 Chevrolet vehicles imported into Europe with an open recall.
A car can be issued a junk title when it has been damage to the extent that the repairs would exceed 75% of its pre-damage value. Most American states will issue this title when the vehicle is no longer roadworthy and cannot receive another title. In some cases, a junk title is treated the same as a salvage title. There have been 1,438 U.S. export Chevrolets to arrive in Europe with a junk title reported. Buy safe with CARFAX.
In the last years, there have been many hurricanes in America. One potential side-effect of these natural disasters is flood damage to the vehicles in the area. There have been at least 982 Chevrolet vehicles imported into Europe with a history of flood damage.
