color change

Know if there are colour changes to the vehicle.

Any mysterious colour changes to the vehicle? A vehicle's colour has a surprisingly large difference in its resale value. Certain colour changes including gold, brown, and purple cause used vehicles to depreciate dramatically at a 41-46% rate in just three years. Steer away from any surprising colour changes to the vehicle. Be sure to run the check to discover if the car still has the original colour and the reported current colour of the vehicle.
