    What a surprise that the Central AR Gestapo have another way to make money off you for something you probably didn't do. Just another reason to avoid it entirely as I do. Take my advice avoid that area and the interstate that sends its business there! Nothing there is worth the risk and the problems it could cause.

    Carfax is totally useless. I don't know anyone who has ever received information from Carfax knowing the history of a vehicle. Sherwood doing this type of business doesn't surprise me at all, I question their motives just like many things concerning Sherwood.
