Does CARFAX guarantee odometer accuracy?

No, CARFAX does not guarantee odometer readings.

If a more recent odometer reading is less than an older reading, then the odometer may have been tampered with and ""rolled back"". CARFAX analyzes the mileage history and the sources of this information to indicate a potential odometer rollback or mileage inconsistency. You should verify the mileage with your dealer or a qualified mechanic.

If an odometer problem results in a DMV-issue branded title (Not Actual Mileage or Exceeds Mechanical Limits), CARFAX guarantees that the title brand will be included in the CARFAX Vehicle History Report or we will buy your car, pursuant to the terms and conditions of the CARFAX Buyback Guarantee.
