I hadn't spotted the mileage discrepancy. Either the person who bought it from you has turned the dealer over and they're too stupid to have done even a basic check, or the dealer is a slippery as a mouldy trout. Or both.

Or the clocks have been changed because of a cluster issue.

Yes but then you'd address it head on in the advert. There's clearly a discrepancy and not mentioning it suggests a level of deception.

When I swapped the clocks on my Ex Plod it was noted in the service book, both the end mileage on one set and the start mileage on the replacement. A third cluster replacement was adjusted to accurately reflect the combined total of the previous two

Needs to be reported to the relevant authorities.  >:(
Yes, report it to VOSA
IF The NT (MOT tester)  has entered it wrong on the VTS device (system) ,it can be altered by contacting VOSA or asking the tester to do it . ;)
IF the mile reading has "gone back"  on the dash ,from previous records  :-X  the NT HAS to record the milage shown on the dash as presented for MOT.
if ,in the case of a faulty LCD or similar mileometer ,the milage can't be viewed ,it should be noted as such eg "unreadable"
The Tester Could add an "advisory" note if he wanted , but that's unlikely .

MOT certificates and service histories are NOT proof of the correct milage ,or the vehicle is safe or 'fault free' or indeed ever been serviced .

MOT just means that for one hour on a certain day the vehicle met the requirements,doesn't mean its any good.

Still appears to be listed for sale in the same place,  and the outfit have dropped the price to £1350.

Mileage still at 90,338 though  ::)

Because the first thing most people do is check the MOT history, and that one is best avoided.

I was going to see an X Trail today, but a quick glance at its MOT history told me it had been neglected from day one.
