Video: Interview with Autocheck

Dave Nemtuda is a senior vice president with Experian Automotive. The company is part of the Experian credit bureau and the parent company of Autocheck. Nemtuda spoke to I-Team 8 via Skype and explained that the competing car history companies have different sources for data from auto auctions to state motor vehicle bureaus.

Nemtuda said that might explain why tidbits of information sometimes conflict.

While he contends a car history report is “critical” when buying a used car, Nemtuda admits the information provided to companies like Autocheck and Carfax is done so voluntarily.

With no law requiring participation, it’s difficult for consumers to uncover the real truth. Nemtuda said a more comprehensive national database that required participation would be beneficial for consumers.
