I was a member here for a while under my original username Bowlochili.

In august of 2015 I sold my 2008 Pontiac G8 to a guy in NJ. Feeling a bit nostalgic, I reached out to the owner on Facebook and later learned that the guy died a year after he bought my car. The G8 sat for a while and his sister took ownership. In speaking with her, she told me her nephew, replaced the motor and did some minor performance upgrades to the car. So I told her, if you ever want to sell it, contact me first.

She contacted me a few weeks ago and sent me a list of things done to the car (after I sold it) a few pictures and the mileage. I sold the vehicle with 97,450 miles. The picture I received had 76,005. I ran a carfax and no the mileage had never been reported. I did call the last shop I had taken it prior to selling the G8 and they have the mileage in their system.

Im just sending this warning out that if someone purchases this car, the mileage is not correct. I loved that car and its ****ed up what they did.

How would one go about rolling it back? Maybe had to replace the cluster and never had it properly programmed? I really don't know.

Im thinking the cluster had to be replaced not the odometer rolled back.
