    Would you buy it?

    Services such as carfax are certainly very helpful when it comes to buying. But, be warned that anything you do to your car will end up on one of these reports and often with very little explanation. Be very careful when taking your car in for a smog inspection, service, title change, etc. Make sure all the information is written down and submitted correctly. A mistake (such as writing the wrong milage) can create an odometer rollback warning on the reports. For example, this ebay listing. The car comes with a rollback warning, but look at the details and its clear that an incorrect milage was entered at some point during ownership.

    The problem is, I for one, would not touch a car like this even if I was certain this was a mistake.

    I assume (hope?) there's a way to correct mistakes, similar to the credit reporting agencies.
