Plus how the person mentions how it does not burn oil is what tripped the switch for me. Almost ANY Honda I have ever seen past 250k burn oil, I don't care what kind of oil you use, it will burn oil. The seats don't even have any wear on them, no rust, original exhaust, sensors, head gasket, etc. Total BS. Unless he can show the missing gap in the Carfax, it'* BS.

why are everyone so skeptical?

I'd believe that some owners take that good of care their car. He obviously maintaned it well and cared about how it looked. He replaced many parts a few times and obviously didn't abuse the car at all when he drove it.

that just seems impossible. the million mile saab was like an 81 and it looked old and worn. i don't see how the seat could look that good if he was in it for that long.

Also, and one of the most convincing points I think, how is it possible, if he'* telling the truth, that he changes his oil every 2500 miles, then that means that on every one of his trips, he pulls over and changes the oil 3 times (on a round trip). Now, unless he'* carrying jack stands and 15 quarts of oil, I don't think there'* a way that he replaces his oil every 2500 miles WITH THE SAME BRAND EVERY TIME. I'm calling total BS on this guy as well. Unless he will provide me with his VIN number and detailed service records:


On another note, isn't it funny that the two famous million mile cars are both Swedish
