Well. Not really. Depending on whether the owner specifically maintains his car at the official dealer or not. Most regular car owners who don't do tuning will have their car history punched into a computer at the auction house before it's purchased by a dealer and get shipped over to you. As most used cars in Japan almost certainly change hands at a car auction, the amount of inspection it goes through to ascertain the condition is ludicrous. Japan is also famous for producing loads of paperwork for nothing. So the pile of paperwork you have could be shipping tax claims invoices, recycling fee returns, auction paperwork and dealer forms.amazing! welcome to the site! i have got a ek9, had it for about 9mths now, and ive got a huge amount of japan paper work of which i have no idea what any of it means! isthe car history in japan done through computer systems? how do i go about chasing up my cars history do you think? any ideas?
