For 20 years +/- we have always purchased pre-leased cars with low mileage and in almost new car condition. In May 2009 we purchased a 2006 VW Jetta 2.5 standard 6 speed pre-lease with 34K on it. Unfortunately we got hit head-on in Bangor, Maine last December 4th which totalled that car. Once the insurance company settled up and gave us a check to purchase another car we went back to our local dealer and purchased another 2006 pre-leased Jetta Triptronic with 33K on it and almost every accessory possible for that model year.
Now, I have a son who works for a dealership in California that came to visit a few weeks ago. He seems to think that this latest Jetta has had an odometer rollback. He drove the car, and looked everything over very carefully and he said that just from certain things he sees he think it has been rolled back. Is it possible to roll back a digital odometer? And, if so where can I go or who can I see to have it verified as a rollback or not? Or, can this even be verified?
We are happy with the car but since my son mentioned a few things I can't stop being suspicious.
