Question, Not Actual Mileage

Hi. I am currently looking at a 2005 F350, THAT says 37000 miles on the ad. It is at a dealership. I requested the CarFax, and they noted in a email to me, that the Not Actual Mileage, Note on the CarFax is because the vehicle has Kilometer not Mileage. The price is listed at $18,500.

I have requested they take a photo of the mileage(kilometer) reading on the truck.

Is there any other way I can check possible miles(kilometers) via a scanner/monitor? Should I just walk away and continue my search?

They sent me a copy of the carfax. I don't notice stolen or anything like that on it. When I get home from work, I will try and screen shot the report and post it maybe I am missing something. I would understand kilometers if it was from EU or maybe Canada. But the vehicle says New Mexico

Car fax only works if someone reports it, ie when its sold and new owner registers it at DMV. Only way would check the PCM at a different dealership, not the one your buying it from.

Here is a link to the screen shots of the CarFax report. Maybe you guys can spot something I am missing.

It means someone swapped out the dash. They usually are required to sell it as "TMU" or true mileage unknown. Run.

Yes, there is a gap. I was trying to figure out why.

The gap an the mileage do not make sense to me.

Only reason I can think of for the gap is farm truck. Or worst case scenario the original owner totaled it and then spent 4 years cobbling it back together leaving it unregistered in the mean time...
