I've been doing quite a bit of reading here, including a bulk of the TSB on rev-up engines at 129 pgs, and other issues.
I just got my 03 6mt with 113k. The title says Exempt and Lemon Law under the mileage. The car runs fine, is modded and I don't know any history on it yet. It was below L on the dipstick the other day. I've only had it about 4 days now and due to the torrential rain for most of those, only put about 65 miles on it so far. It has used 1/4 tank of gas.. :/
So.. is there a database or registry that you can enter your VIN and gain some insight? Would carfax contain this type of info?
I picked this car up cheap, but I'm supposed to be dailying it while I complete other projects..this was supposed to be the reliable one..
Any help appreciated.
here is a pic of the title.. would this non rev up engine have been replaced at some point? or more than once? what leverage could that offer on future claims, if any?
