Should I keep the g?


well it sucks but I just found out after having my 2003 g35 sedan for 2 years is that the car has odometer roll back 😪 so in reality my car has 244k miles instead of the 144 that shows on my dash.i have invested over 2k on my car just to keep it running smooth and I’m wondering if I should just get rid of while I can or should I keep it and maintain it for myself until she gives up. She runs smooth and Doesn’t have any lights on or anything that conserns me besides some typical Midwest rust.What would you guys do?

First of all I have to know what camera you used to take the picture, it's gorgeous! Car looks great and if you have no issues with it now I don't see any reason to get rid of it, especially since I get a sense you really like the car. Honestly, for resale value your 16 year old car won't be worth much less showing 244K miles that it would have with 144K. Keep the maintenance up to date and the car will last a long time, we have a sedan on here that's a daily driver that has over 360K miles and still running great.

Get a compression test done, that will tell you what you need to know about the health and expected longevity of the engine. If the previous owner kept up on the scheduled maintenance and repaired items as needed then you probably have PLENTY of life left in the car depending on how many miles you drive per year.

Most folks put 13-15k per year on a daily driver so you could realistically have close to 5 years left on the drivetrain (more or less depending on actual wear), the body looks fantastic, if everything works I'd just keep it and drive it.

Maintenance is key.

haha it’s actually just an iPhone 8 Plus yeah I actually tried trading it to a dealer for a g37 but was quoted $900 for my g35 smh I couldn’t pull the trigger and decided to keep my g35 for now until she finally dies off thanks for your advice 🙏

I checked the carfax a year later after I bought it and it read “POTENTIAL ODOMETER ROLLBACK” and the miles went from 183 to 143k so when I bought it it showed 143k on the odometer
