Backdate or restore historical data for automobile

When Mint came out with the automatic car value feature, it told me once I added the car I could delete the old manual entry and still retain the historical data which ended up being not the case. Any way to back date my car to the beginning?


Hello erikmfuller,

 I'm sorry that deleting the original "other property" account impacted your net worth history. Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do at this time to retrieve the historical information.

The only way to prevent this from happening is to edit the existing account to zero vs removing it, though this is not currently intuitive within the product.  

I am really sorry for this inconvenience,

Mint Maggie

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
