Ran carfax and following info came up. Note the two mileage figures.

===================================================
05/22/1998 US Customs Exported from: Germany
Imported to: Newark, NJ

06/05/1998 Registered as private vehicle
Motor Vehicle Dept.

09/01/1998 6 Title issued Motor Vehicle Dept.

04/24/1999 73,000 Passed emissions inspection

04/24/1999 Passed emissions inspection
=======================================================

The strange thing is the independent dealer says the mileage is 31,000 but the carfax says 73,000. That also means most of this mileage was put on in a little under 8-mo!!!! Even if there is a mistake, if I buy the car then the next carfax would report an odometer rollback!

What's up? Any ideas?

TIA
Norm
