Is it possible to see the vehicle history if I have the vin ? If so how do I go about it?

I would think your local Chevy dealer should be able to bring up you car's service history. There may even be a service recall or bulletin that needs to be addressed.

paying for a carfax will actually show dealer reported maintenance performed (or any warranty work) ..the carfax on my CPO Spark EV even shows when the dealer replaced all 4 tires in 2018

$39.99 for a single Carfax report.

Thank you for the information. I looked at several that were for sale and they all included a Carfax report. In one case the car had been in a accident and another the car had less than 3000 miles but there were several componets replaced near the time that the lease was ended which is good to know. In atleast two cases the oil and filter had been replaced !! . The carfax is helpful.

Are you referring to gasoline Chevy Spark? Because the Spark EV doesn't have any scheduled maintenance on oil changes nor oil filters.. Especially under 3,000 miles :shock:

I was just pointing out what I assume was a error on the part of the person entering the information. Possibly cutting and pasting.
