Mileage issue


I have just put a deposit on a 2004 Scenic Expression 1.5 dci

After doing a vehicle check on autotrader there appears to be a mileage anomoly - see below:

DVLA 23/02/2012 77,000
DVLA 06/12/2011 77,000
BVRLA 19/05/2006 22,498
RMI MIL'GE 27/02/2006 21,451
BVRLA 14/02/2006 29,076
RMI MIL'GE 27/01/2006 20,647
RMI MIL'GE 04/11/2005 18,541

I've checked out the BVRLA source and it suggests that the car may have been a lease car. The dealer said it had two owners.
I have got back to him and he is supplying me with the V5C number so I can check its MOT history and he is doing a check on the mileage.
Should I get my deposit back and run a mile?!

ie possible misread on the 3rd entry,if 29 was really 21 it would be kosher if not

Re: Mileage issue

Hi Margaret - welcome to the forum.

I have moved your quey to the Cars and Motoring section where it is more likely to be noticed.

Scenics of that age where prone to failing dashboards so it is possible a replacement second hand unit may have been fitted at some point.

Hopefully the MOT search may reveal more. If you are buying from a dealer or private seller it is their responsibility to ensure the mileage is correct or state they do not know. It is not up to you to establish the facts but having said that it is good to see you are being careful.

In my opinion if the seller is not willing to assist it may be prudent to walk away.
