Advice for Buying a low mileage 1998 Toyota RAV4.
Buying a low mileage 1998 Toyota RAV4 for sale within your budget can be a real challenge. But, before thinking about high mileage or low mileage, make sure the car mileage is not manipulated. Actually, by importing cars directly from Japan, you can minimize this risk. How? One way is to check the export certificate of the car, if the mileage shown in the car is less than the mileage written on the export certificate, that means the mileage has been re-wired. Another way is to ask for the auction sheet of the car (80% of the Japanese used cars for export have auction sheets). If the odometer has been rewired, it will be indicated clearly in the auction sheet.
Note: If you buy a car from a local showroom, there will be no way to check the export certificate or auction sheet of the car anymore, meaning, you cannot really check the authenticity of the mileage anymore.
After you have picked a list of options and checked the authenticity of the mileage of those cars, put more priority on the cars which have lower mileage.
