Mileage is one of the most important parameters for choosing a used car. The residual life of its units, the cost of maintenance in the future, and therefore the resale price depend on the kilometers traveled. Therefore, unscrupulous sellers are tempted to correct the odometer reading - in a smaller direction, of course. Auto.ru research shows that among some brands of cars, the number of "wound" reaches 30 percent!
However, Automotive News not only posts ads for the sale of used cars, but also tries to make the market transparent and fair. Based on the VIN number of the car being sold, which the seller must provide, we collect a complete report on the history of the car, available to every potential buyer. Wherein mileage data and its dynamics, we are looking for and checking seven different sources at once!
1. Sales history on Avto.ru
During the existence of Avto.ru, we have helped to sell millions of cars - and all ads are carefully saved. If you buy a car not from its first owner, then there is a high probability that it has already been exhibited on Automotive News and we remember her sales history … This means that you can find out with what mileage the car was offered to buyers in the past.
Unfortunately, there are many cases when in the past the mileage was higher than in the present. Moreover, the history of placement on Automotive.ru may show that the current seller is quite honest - but was not careful enough when buying his car a year or several years ago. Either way, this data will be helpful when choosing your next car.
