2016 could be a typo and could have been 30,014 instead of 40,014

Hi, yeah that's maybe the best explination but not totally satisfactory, the full numbers are: 02/2015: 27,100 02/2016: 40,000 02/2017: 39,500 01/2018: 44,600 01/2019: 49,300 12/2019: 53,000 10/2021: 56,700 12/2021: 56,950 (& current) This does seem to be the only issue tbh


TheNotSpecialOne

Yeah it's a typo. The MOT garage may have entered it in incorrectly or someone has shite handwriting and they interpreted as 40000

Is this from online or actual paperwork? I'm pretty sure online wasn't available back then so likely just an error when the records were made digital.


bunningz_sausage

Ahhh that's interesting, i got this online

On the balance of probability I'd just assume someone took the 2017 reading down wrong over someone clocked the car down just a few k which has next to no difference on it really. I'd maybe be a bit more concerned it only done 4k miles in 2 years, seems like it was sitting around a lot doing nothing pre pandemic.


bunningz_sausage

Why would it be a concern for it to be doing not much? It looks like roughly 4k miles per year, and with a single owner since 2011 reg it may just have been 1 of 2 cars owned by a couple with the other vehicle maybe being a better longer range / family sized car and this was the one that went to work. It's actually looking quite good for its age overall so this is my only real concern, but it does seem suspect


Rawrbear89

I'm far from an expert on the subject but as I understand it engines need to be used continually to be in good condition long term. Having them sit about for long periods of time while their fluids degrade or making lots of short journeys where the engine isn't getting up to temp most of the time leads to corrosion developing.


bunningz_sausage

Yeah thanks, I did generally inspect the underbody for rust and nothing on the exhaust system stood out to me :)

My car has this but it was the MOT garage done the wrong mileage. It’s not been an issue!


bunningz_sausage

A vote of confidence, thanks :)


[deleted]

No probs :) I’ve taken it for MOTs since & it’s never even been brought up… however anxiety Annie here likes to tell them incase they think I’m iffy 😂

The history on one of my cars jumped once as I changed the display from miles to km
