You won't be able to return the car, but, if you find enough evidence, and if the transaction wasn't that long ago, you may be able to bring litigation against the person who sold you the car.
Tampering with odometer readings is a federal offense.
Whether tampering is done by a backyard mechanic who resets the odometer before trading for a new car, by a person who buys a gadget to keep miles from registering on the odometer, by a dealer who contracts with a "reconditioning" firm, or by a multi-state used car mill, odometer tampering violates state and Federal Laws, and is punishable by fines, imprisonment or both.
If your Carfax report shows a rollback on the odometer due to a mistake by the state inspector, try contacting where you had it inspected. If that is not feasible, contact the State and then Carfax.
I had a 1993 Crown Vic that the odometer stopped working. I found out the government is very picky about messing around with it. You can replace it with a new one or a used one, but you must have a sticker put on the car, most of the time in the driver side door jam, that states that the odometer has been replaced, the mileage of the old odometer and the mileage of the new odometer. I found it was best to have a shop do this as they take care of the necessary red tape. (I know it is a little more costly, but in this case I felt the shop was the better way to go) It very well could show up on CarFax (some repair shops share data with Carfax - others don't). That is the type of thing that i would want to know if I was buying a car. If you do it yourself, there probably will not be a carfax report, unless you report it to them.
Carfax allows one who is considering purchasing a vehicle to check the vehicle's registration and title information, currant odometer readings, accident history including frame and structural damage, and recall information.
You will need to call the state inspectors office and file an official complaint.
In a carfax report, almost everything about the car's history can be obtained. This includes former owners, odometer readings, any accidents the car was involved in, the usage of the vehicle (such as if it has ever been used as a taxi service or a rental car), recalls, and more.

It is easiest to check for odometer tampering if the odometer is not digital. Look at the numbers and see if they all line up at the top and bottom. Unless a number is about to change the line of numbers should be straight and they should not jiggle when tapped. Get a free CarFax Odometer Report and look for discrepancies that might appear on mileage, look at the cars title and service records and compare mileage, and see if the cars wear and tear matches with the mileage.

You can't. Carfax doesn't go back that far. Carfax is a joke anyway. Very few shops actually report to carfax and any work done by the owner isn't reported either.
