I have 2003 Dodge V6 CV Delivery van . It was from Auction source Postal. Had bad this and bad that (below)

I have been told by mechanics,that they think the van NO WAY had the reported 32,300K mileage ,and I didn't know it at 1st. Odometer was taken out at 27.7K miles, and it's very obvious to me now that it was probably 332.2K miles when Auction sold it. Specific issues with motor vehicle maintenance or repair had bad (groaning) power steering pump ,and still does had transmission rebuilt by postal Maintenence people,and a mistake was done leaving it with a bad leak.I had it rebuilt locally. Air Conditioner was bad worn out whr sold...still bad radiator leaking lightly then worse replaced steering wheel worn and driver floor worn through radio not operative as was back up cam.

Does this sound like a Van that had 32.2K mileage ?

Real problems or questions that you’ve encountered

INSTRUMENT CLUSTER was cchanged out,therefore incorrect as in programmed to reflect false mileage. FLUID LEAK for transmission was checked and mechaniccs said something wrong with report of mileage,they replaced fluid and it never stopped leaks until it was "re-rebuilt" by good mechanic, who noticed it was rebuilt wrongle and torque converter painted. RADIATOR changed as it was cracked slightly as spout replacement RADIO stuck of am station with no sound, replacement. POWER STEERING pump needs replacement. Attourney sent records that were inconclusdsive omittiong first 10 years ("archived") as they stated it. Can anyone lend a hand and tell me where to complain about this problem ? It's a Gen. Service Administration fleet vehicle , but I doubt the Government people will listen to a person who was victimized by Postal Auction management.

Is a local Police report an option since odometer tampering is a crime ? Does it constitute odometer fraud when this is done ?

    Sounds like a Salvage Title car... If so, depending on the State of purchase, the odometer accuracy doesn't matter. Also, in some States, there's a checkbox for Is the odometer correct? ... if checked No, then there's no fraud. – RubberStamp Nov 20 '17 at 23:44

    This is more of a legal question than a maintenance question. You should try asking it over on Law.SE and see what they come up with. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Nov 21 '17 at 2:09
  • I'm trying to wrap my had around how you thought a 2003 GSA fleet vehicle had only 32 k on it? – agentp Nov 21 '17 at 21:38
