Re: DMV shows my car as not actual mileage
First of all, I don't have a lot of faith in Carfax...with that said...
I purchased my beast back in June it had clear title definately not showing any "not actual mileage" statements on it. The title I was issued in my name is also free of any not actual mileage statements.
My best guess is the previous owner sold the car with the pixel display problem, couldn't read the odometer display and reported that the current mileage was unknown. I took my car to the local bmw dealer who stated my car is in fact showing actual mileage...there is nothing inaccurate about the current mileage display...so case closed, however, when I decide to sell the car someome might get upset about my carfax report showing a history of a mileage unknown condition...I'll get with carfax and see if that comment can be removed from my cars history, however, if not, it's no big deal since my dealer can verify for any potential buyer that the mileage is accurate.
I initially was pi$$ed off about this but I got over it quickly.
