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.
