How can a used car for sale have 0 miles?


Asked by Jun 24, 2015 at 02:51 PM about the 2011 Subaru Forester 2.5 X Premium

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I have seen several cars for sale, in the 2010 - 2012 range that have 0 miles.  When I try
to talk to the dealers about the miles they do everything but answer my questions.

I would think maybe a new engine = no miles if literally brand new

I've seen it many times, I think they don't want to check the mileage/lazy and just enter zero. I agree, not a good way to sell a car.


is probably a TMU (true mileage unknown) check the carfax, if you buy the car just assume it has over 200k miles also TMU cars sale at a discount price
