OT: Mileages (archive)

Posted by Bobby Ramelli on January 24, 2000 at 21:07:45:

I don't mean to be OT here, but I have a question about mileages on cars. My son is looking at a 1998 Chevy Tahoe 4x4. The car currently has 56000 miles on the odometer. I find this rather disturbing in that my 1992 535i only has 47K on it. I ran a report on its title and can't seem to figure out what the deal is with the car. It is reprinted below. This seems outrageously high milage for a 2 year old car, but they would be highway miles, so the car could be 'broken in.' All serices and filter changes were document by the second owner. Please look over the carfax info below and tell me if I should pass on the car.

Thanks,
Bobby
