Jeep buying saga part 2... I joined the club!

For those that have been following my threads, I bought the silver 01 sport! You all heard how I talked the dealer into a great deal but get this.....

When I was walking to the Jeep post paperwork (cash deal) the salesman started laughing. I asked what was up and he said that a person came that morning to buy the Jeep but it was on hold for me. The guy pointed out something that the dealership didn't know, the 75k miles on the Jeep was actually 45k miles since it was from Canada (all gauges in kilometers)!!

I noticed on the car fax before I bought the Jeep that there was a flag for "mileage discrepency" but thought nothing of it. This jeep has almost half the miles on it than the dealer thought. The manager was pissed when the other customer pointed this out.

I thought the salesman was bullshitting me but he made a good point, I had already bought the Jeep why would he make all of that up?

Am I an idiot or does this Jeep truly have 45k miles since the gauges are in canadian and the Carfax shows Canadian as well??

Oh that's a beautiful thing. That's the karma from keeping your bike and getting rid of that Beamur.

Well one thing......look at the speedo is made for kph or mph priority? That'll be an indicator. And if you look around.....like the owners manual.....is it in French? I wouldn't care so much it was a good deal 75k anyway.......and YOU made out on this one not the stealer. Good Job. Now what are you gonna do to it?

Oh yeah remember one important thing too, if you really want to make it right you can get the PCM either reprogrammed or replaced with the actual MILES. A rebuilt cost about $250 not sure on the reprogrammed. But it can be done.

sweet looking color; check to make sure the clearcoat on those canyons are good; if they start to flake off, get it fixed before they get oxidized

Yes everything on the gages is in kilometers. The manual is Canadian and the Carfax reflects a purchase in Canada. It is Canadian to boot!
