More like 215,840.7 miles.
When I traded in our 87 Taurus in 1999, the odometer read 20xxxx when it
had 220,xxx,x miles. The car looked like a lot less than 120,xxx.x miles.
I still saw it driving around 2 years later. I wonder if the dealer or
someone "fudged" the odometer report or title to sell the car... I was
hoping to see someone getting in or out of the car sometime to ask them
how many miles (they think) the car had.
