About to buy an Excursion, help reading Carfax Report

Can I get a second opinion on this vehicle?

I am thinking of purchasing this vehicle tomorrow, and the last thing before I went to get it was the Karfax report. I got one *thanks*.

Can someone please let me know if this looks weird. The Miles from the 3rd owner to the 4th and current owner.

This is showing me on 04/21/2004 86,180 Michigan.

then this

11/26/2008 86,280 Michigan?

So 100 miles were put on this thing in 4 years?

What are the possibilities the report is wrong, or is most likely a roll back?

Thanks.

-Nick

seems very suspicious to me

no way someone bought it and only put on 100 miles in 4 years of ownership
I put 170 on mine just driving it home
if it was because of gas, they would have just turned around and sold it

secondly, if it is true, then that thing probably has several issues because anything that has been sitting for 4 years will need some reconditioning
sitting is very hard on cars/trucks
