6/11/2002 125,000
6/30/2003 150,000

I know.


But Carfax goes about and says that everything is a-okay.



But they didn't (and still don't) have any odometer information whatsoever on my dearly departed Cressida.

I ran another Carfax on car a few weeks ago, it earned itself a Junk title by February 2004, I pawned it off in Dec. '03 for someone to rape and pillage for parts. Still no mileage readings.

Cars that come from Germany are wery likely rolled back. It's almost a sport down there, and it has only been easier with digital odometers. A palm computer connected to a plug in the back of a Golf IV and all you have to do is type the numbers.

And then there's only the service book and common sence to help you.
