Default Car damage that I paid for

I'm not sure if this is in the right forum. If not I apologize and hopefully a mod moves it to the right one. My car sustained major damage a few years ago that I paid out of my own pocket to get fixed. The damage was a busted/shattered frame where the alignment was messed up that the tire was grinding on the body until it wore quite thin. The cost for repairs was about $5000 that I paid for myself.

Now if I paid for the repairs out of my own pocket, would it still show up on CarFax/would I have to notify the dealer for the damage even if I didn't report to insurance/would they be able to tell if they inspected the car? And would this greatly affect the trade-in value?
