go to the carfax website, pay a fee, you will then get it. Carfax will only show information provided to them. I have had all the service on my car done by the dealer. When I looked over the carfax (the service manager showed it to me, free). none of the service showed up on the carfax. I was told the dealer I use does not share their records with carfax. I suggest if you are interested in buying this car have it checked out by a Honda dealer or trusted mechanic

I do not recommend Carfax (or other vehicle history sources). They have a poor record for accuracy - I have never seen an accurate report. My daughter's Accord was listed as having originally been a fleet vehicle, although the original purchase contract and the DMV record showed we were buying from the original (private) owner. My son's Acura had a clean record even though the front body parts had wrecking yard markings. Others have had worse encounters - see the first source. All auto history companies have the same problems, especially that there is no reliable way for them to know about accidents.

The only legal way to get a report is to pay for it or to be shown the report by a seller who has paid for it. Any other way is a violation of the terms of the company. You are much better advised to spend the money toward having the vehicle checked by a mechanic, especially since that is still necessary. Carfax will not tell you how well the vehicle has been maintained or if it has a leaking head gasket.
