Comment Definitions

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unreliable Odometer (Not Actual Mileage) When the seller certifies, under the Truth in Mileage Act, that the odometer reading is NOT ACTUAL MILEAGE. This may occur because the disclosed odometer reading was not accurate and verifiable.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Failed Emissions Inspection The tests and inspections performed at a specific emissions check indicated the vehicle was emitting more than allowable emissions standards and/or had missing or modified parts. An emissions failure, even if the vehicle passes at a future date, generates a Failed Emissions Record in the Carfax database
