you probably should waste your time... There's nothing to lose with using these reports in conjunction with what your mechanic says.

Mechanic could say the car has never been in an accident, and the report could show otherwise.

I was shocked to read that it was only voluntary, but it doesn't make sense that it could only be voluntary...

More precisely, it's prone to missing accident info, but still useful nevertheless.
