I just bought a 2007 Tacoma for a decent deal over the weekend, which had the usual scratches and things for a used truck ,but I noticed something that disturbed me.
The vehicle was listed for 77,000 miles which I saw when I went to test drive on Saturday. When I came back to pick the truck up on Sunday, I noticed the ODO read 72000......This made me raise an eyebrow. Secondly, the only thing even near to questionable on the carfax was "mileage discrepancy." The dealer assured me that was a clerical error....Now I am starting to think otherwise. Why would the digital ODO change mileage while I was gone? and How?
So the question is, How do I identify if the gauge cluster in this truck matches the VIN on the dash? What do I look for? I am going to take the cluster out to replace the lens, so I figure I will check to see if it matches the truck. Any advice appreciated.
