    Default Take a look here Veccy's with only 1 mile on the clock!

    Was browsing through Auto trader when i came across a company called Car Star of Stanningley who seem to have a lot of very 'low' mileage Vectras for sale? At least 6 of them are showing just 1 mile, surely they should be stating that it's actually 101,000 miles? I know what you're thinking, "you're not that stoopid are you lad?", well maybe not but it sure had my daughter fooled!

    Having looked at a number of cars there in the past i would walk away even if they had only 1 mile on the clock. This is only personal opinion though

    Vehicle : Vectra GSi 3.2 V6

    Trim : GSi

    Engine : Z32SE

    Year : 2003

    Mileage : 204,800

    Default

    Look for other signs of age in the cars - evidence of wear and tear in the interior, engine bay, underneath, etc. Even delivery milage is usually more than 1 mile. Beware!

    It happens when the dealer wants to advertise the car but doesn't know the mileage.

    Or the mileage is so high they'd rather not say...

    Car Giant does that - if it's over a certain figure they simply don't advertise it...

    Just looked at the site...most have 1 mile so I think your answer seems correct. I hate dealers that do this.

    Default

    When a mileage is unknown (usually because the battery is dead),the mileage is entered as 1 or 9999999, the software I use and others I know of will not allow a mileage to be entered as 0.
