If a car is considered to be TMU (True Mileage Unknown), should one stay away from the hassle? Also, is there anyway that that could be cleared, because the car itself has a clear title yet there's that tag of it being TMU.

Asked by Apr 04, 2012 at 03:26 AM about the 2005 Acura RSX Type-S

Question type: General

I was looking at this 05 RSX Type-S which I found on here. I'll link it for ease of seeing that it's TMU,
but the odometer when I called and asked did read 62k.

So I was just curious about that TMU. How bad/good is that?

I would stay away from that one. You could end up buying yourself a lot of problems. When someone signs the title to a vehicle TMU they COULD be covering up something. If you run a carfax on this one you might be able to figure out the mileage. I would be very cautious on this one. Once a car title has this flag you can't remove it.

Really? Well the dealer supposedly has a carfax on it, so I'll have to talk to them and see what's on that carfax and what not. Thanks for the input. Appreciate it.

Kinda curious to see what is on the carfax for this. I've never seen a carfax on a TMU. If you get a chance post what you found. Thanks
