How can you verify if an older car has 30 or 130K miles?

Without actual odometer readings, it would be darn near impossible to tell. Some people are very meticulous in the upkeep on their vehicles, so they could have a car with 200,000 miles on it, looking like brand new, whereas another person who really doesn't care how the vehicle looks like, or doesn't believe in maintenance, will have a bomb at 10,000 miles.

There are several small ways u can do this, one of them is to find another vehicle that has similar miles and compare the brake pedal wear, of course this wouldn't hold true if the brake pedal was changed also.


The truth is you can only through wear and so forth. Most times, its obvious.

It all depends on how old the car is, and how many miles are on it. You also have to pay the taxes on the car the same day you go to get it legal..The older the car is and the more miles is on it, the cheaper it is to get it legal...

I need to verify the last time a car I bought was registered.

The more miles driven and the older the car, the less in value the car will be. If you are at the point where you are having to make major repairs on the car then it is time to sell.

It means that the milage is exempt. A car must be 10 years old or older for miles to be exempt.

Anytime your engine is not running correctly, or missing. Otherwise on a 1995 or older car change them at 50,000 miles. On a 1996 or newer car change at 100,000 miles.
