Auto dealership / Posting lower mileage than true

Be very careful when buying a used vehicle from any dealer on Craigslist or AutoTrader.com . I have ran across many vehicles advertising low mileage when actually the mileage is much higher. And even though this is both a State and Federal crime the authorities don't seem to want to do anything about it.
Even when reported the dealers still list the vehicles at lower mileage! See these examples:
Fairway Auto Sales 6151 S. Broadway St Wichita Kansas 67216 phone # [protected] lists a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado truck advertised with 106, 000 miles. But the vin # 1gcek14v83z348558 search shows the vehicle had 124, 000 mile on 05/17/2010.

And Schrier Automotive 6524 L St Omaha, NE 68117 phone # [protected] Lists a 1990 GMC Sierra C/K1500 4x4 with 50, 500 miles, but the vin # 1GTDK14K9LZ555025 shows it had 100, 014 miles on 07/28/1997 {14 years ago}. Car Fax reported Inconsistent odometer reading and Accident reported but the dealer does not disclose this and still maintains he believes the mileage to be 50.500! They have a FREE carfax check right on their site!

When confronted the dealers hung up on me! And when reported a month ago the authorities did nothing! So I guess it is up to you the consumer to do your own due diligence!
