My VIN is: YV1RH52Y842353297

I'm trying to find out where my car was serviced, and if possible, who the previous owner was (I think I have IPD HD endlinks out back, and I'd like to know if there's a tune applied). If anybody could help out, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Unfortunately a Carfax would not tell you if a tune was applied.

Also unfortunately, a Carfax might not give you crap on service either. Doesn't hurt to try, of course.

Carfax wont help you. You need to go to your local dealer and run the vin. Then they could tell you where most of the warranty work was done. Call up that place and they'll tell you about the maintenance done to the car...that's what I had to do. I doubt they'll give you the owners name though.

Re: Anybody have an unlimited Carfax account and want to do me a solid :p (Needsdecaf)

Yeah, I know it won't tell me if it's tuned or have complete service records. I'm trying to track down the previous dealership it was serviced/bought at and perhaps the previous owner (so I can find out those things). I can't find a free service anywhere, and for $30, I'd buy and install a crapp-o boost gauge to see if I'm pushing more than 14psi, ya know? (Although, I would probably end up pi$$ed because I suck at installs, LOL).

I was hoping one of the more active sellers/buyers might have an account and be willing to hook up a one-time carfax for me. Long shot, I know. I will keep trying

"Okra" is the term for Atacama in the Volvo VIDA parts catalog. The "grey" refers to the non-Atacama colored interior pieces.

I actually got pissed at my local dealer because they wouldn't even give me maintenance info. They figure the only people looking for that are trying to sue the previous owner for something and don't want to get involved. I just wanted to know how well the car was cared for and if I needed to do a timing belt!

Someone should inform Volvo that Okra is green
