Actual mileage?

How concerned would you be if you found out the mileage on your El Camino was wrong, or at least was more than you thought it was? I just ran a CarFax on the car I think I'm going to buy, and it says it may have as much as 290,000 miles on it...but it could be that there was a clerical error early on, and the indicated mileage is a lot closer to correct.

What do you think?

One way to help determine mileage or amount of time run is to examine the condition of the pedals. How much rubber is worn off the right side of the brake pedal pad? Is it through to the steel?

How sloppy is the throttle pedal side to side, etc?

How about handles & door pulls? How loose have they become?

Good luck
