: Is it possible
Apr 17th, 04, 07:53 PM
I was just wondering is there any possible way to roll back mileage on a 95 LT1. The reason I ask this question is I am in the stage of trading in my 98 v6 for a 95 Z28. Well I started to write down the mileage and to day I went up there again to check out something and to ask a few questions and I went to check the odometer (sp) to see what the mileage was well to day it showed 83162 (4/17) and on 4/06 it showed 83165 so I was just wondering is there any way possible to roll back the mileage. If itís possible to do that then Iím gonna pass on that car but if it isnít possible then maybe I just wrote/remembered it wrong. So please let me know thanks.
Here are the mileage
Heres all the dates/mileage on carfax:
02/17/2004 82,662 (mileage when it got to the lot)
The owner drove it for about 2 weeks before it was put up for sale at the dealer. The milage was 82782 (2/28/2004) when it was officailly for sale.
Here is when i started to record it:

is that a digital odometer? if so, then it might jump around a bit- at least the odometer in my 94 Caprice does. i've "lost" 300 miles overnight somehow on a couple of occasions, and also "gained" a few hundred miles when i go into a convenience store.
if someone was gonna roll back an odometer, i'd think they'd take more than 2 miles off it..

look at the numbers- if they all line up in a perfect line, then the odo probably hasn't been tampered with. if they are uneven, then it's a good probability that someone has had their fingers in there.
of course, maybe they odo got replaced with one that had similar miles on it just to screw with that freak that keep looking at and writing down the mileage on the car smile.gif

Are you sure that last digit wasn't an 8?

Call me silly but if someone was gonna go to the trouble to "roll back" an odometer, it would be for thousands of miles, not 3. that just wouldnt be worth the trouble.JMO Kevin

(did you know Furds used to 'reverse' the reading if you jacked up the back and put it in reverse...)
Even got away with 'grudge-racing' it until I won a couple times and they started putting my pic. in the paper...

In my younger days,a friend of mine and I borrowed another friends 6 cylinder chevy truck once and disconnected the speedometer so he wouldnít know we took it to Houston and back. Problem was we burned a hole in a piston on the way and had to replace it through the bottom to get it home. We thought we got away with it but got busted when he noticed the new blue silicone around the oil pan..

Funny how we never seemed to get away with some of this stuff back-in-the-day - maybe our parents and friends were smarter than we gave them credit for... :rolleyes:
