This isn’t a question, just a short cautionary story for the unwitting. I just bought a used car and made the mistake of not running a Carfax report on the VIN first because I was in a hurry and didn’t have Internet access. The car is a 2005 model year with a digital odometer that I assumed was resistant to rollback. Wrong!!! The odometer reads 114,000 miles, but after buying the car I did run a Carfax and found the actual mileage is 212,000. Then I read online that digital odometers are very easy to “roll back” with the right software, and that almost 500,000 used cars sold per year in the US have rolled back odometers.
Lesson learned: always run a Carfax (or equivalent) report before buying a used car! That would have saved me an expensive mistake.
