45% of vehicles run by CARFAX Canada have a lien registered against them.

A car lien is an interest in the car that the owner grants to another party (such as a bank, financial institution, or other party), usually as security or collateral for a debt, until such debt has been discharged. If the person you’re buying from has a lien on the vehicle and doesn’t tell you about it, you could find yourself responsible for the remainder of their debt. Make sure there are no registered liens before you buy a used car. Don’t know what a lien is? You’re not alone.
