I recently got a PPI (pre purchase inspection), and I was so glad I did. How ever
it would seem to me that the service info would have helped as well.

You can use the VIN to order a CarFax. I don't think dealers will release old service records but you could try. Perhaps if the owner authorized them to.

That is correct, the Service records are tied to the person or persons who owned the vehicle in the past. Due to the Personal protective act, that will be hard. If you know where it was serviced, an advisor could look up what was done and tell you, but you won't get print outs.
