Massive Problem Please help!

Ok guys so I bought a car off EBAY considering I should be protected a descent amount. I had the guy facetime me with the car running and all that jazz. I love the car. Problem is I am reading the odometer paperwork and it says true mileage in excess of mechanical limits. I called the guy and he said that usually cars that are 10 years old like mine have that checked to protect the seller. I am now extremely worried. Any experience with this guys?

Sounds like the guy is blowing smoke up your ***. Should have the correct mileage. Anything 05-10 is going to have a digital odometer anyway...

Yeah I think I'm confused as well. What's the odometer read?

The odometer does read around 93k. The carfax verifies that. So I am just confused why he would mark that on the odometer report. That basically means that the odometer has rolled over 100k miles and that the real mileage is indeed 193k. I called him again he assured it has 93k miles and the carfax does confirm that. He is also sending me another copy of the odometer report saying that it IS original miles. So I guess im in the clear here??

Those odometers don't roll over at 99,999. They have 6 digits in the 05-09.

Unless he swapped the cluster, I don't see anything wrong with it.

He marked it because he ****ed up. Happened to me once. They will give you a title that says "not actual mileage" if he has marked that and you try to register it. He will need to go get a new copy of his title and fill it out correctly. Do not take it until he does.

Crap! That sucks I just turned in the paperwork Can I correct this problem myself when I receive the title? ALl in all I guess it doesn't really matter until I go to resell this vehicle(If I ever do).

You would need paperwork from the DMV stating that the mileage is accurate, it would have to be signed by the seller and be notarized as well. If you already signed it and turned it in... too late.


Yes it will not matter unless you go to sell it. But you will never be able to sell it and be able to accurately represent the miles and no dealer will ever give you more than the bare minimum if at all for trade.

Just off hand,
Did he replace the instrument cluster for some reason? Then the odo would be off.
