    That VIN that you list is missing 1 number or letter.. It's too short.. But I'll run it if you can tell me what the missing digit is..

    Title #4301234148
    EXCEEDS MECHANICAL LIMITS TITLE ISSUED

    CARFAX AdvisorTM
    An EML title is issued when the owner discloses an odometer rollover to a DMV. Rollovers occur on vehicles with 5-digit odometers that go from 99,999 to 00,000 every 100,000 miles.

    Mileage reported after this reading is potentially unreliable

    EXCEEDS MECHANICAL LIMITS TITLE ISSUED


    Tell us what you know about this vehicle

    Detailed Vehicle History Definitions:

    Exceeds Mechanical Limits
    A vehicle with a 5-digit odometer cannot accurately track mileage after 99,999 miles because the odometer rolls over. This title is the result of a seller certifying under the Truth-in-Mileage Act, that the odometer reading EXCEEDS MECHANICAL LIMITS of the odometer.

    Didn't the carfax give any mileages?

    I bought the car from a junkyard. I am the most recent title holder. The car has obviously sat for many years. Everything about the car seems like new other than being really dirty and scratched up from stuff sitting on it and from someone attempting to break into it. The odometer shows 810 miles and that apears accurate for the motor as it is still on the original belts and filters and they look new. The motor runs excellent now although the gas that was in it was so old it wouldn't run when I got it. I put new spark plugs in and flushed the fuel out and it seems just like new.

    It has a sticker on the door jam that says "Vehicle modified by Professional Trim Conversions" but the phone number is no longer valid. It had a stripes and two tone paint scheme that I have never seen before. The carpets and seats show no wear at all. The entire wire harness has been changed as has the dash panel. I mean how many MN12's do you know that have NO play in the door hinges?

    I am in the process of putting the car back on the road, but I am really curious about the mileage. When the junkyard titled the car they put the "exceeds" statement on the title because they did not believe the odometer.

    I just saw this. I bet that is the original mileage. It doesn't appear to have been driven much since that time. Judging from the mouse tracks, I'd say it was in a barn.

    Did anyone notice the switch panel on center console is missing the switches??
    What would the second switch be for? Mine only has the switch for the ride control. Just curious.

    Nothing. The SC's and the 91 XR7's were available with fog lights, but not the 89-90 XR7.
