Re: Odometer Rollback Help...
For buddy of yours i would say why did he purchase a vehicle without doing a carfax report? Ok, lets say he screwed up and now he has to figure out how to sell his jeep! If I was his I would go to Carfax and get all the history of the vehicle to be able to aproximate REAL mileage as close as possible, to me it seems he should have over 200,000 miles on it. At some point i think vehicle might have had engine swapped, find ot what is the VIN number on the engine and compare it with the vehicle. If he finds proof that vehicle had mileage rolled back than he needs to prove it in everyway, it is illegal to roll back your mileage so he could at least try to get some answers from a previous owner, but all of it comes to "why buying a vehicle at first place without a carfax report?". At this point I would say he can do something by tracking all of the previous owners, how? I dont know but maybe carfax specifies or has info of where or who was the previous owner of the vehicle, little digging should be done, as soon as he tracks the first owner sho rolled the mileage he can do much more than just sit at home and think to himself "What the f$%& am I supposed to do now?". I think it wont be easy and little too much of a headache, and the only sollution without a hassle is to estimate the mileage which should be on the vehicle and sell it with honesty that way he will be able to sell it faster, of course he wont get his money back for what he paid for it but that should be resolved with the previous owner who he purchased it from.
