Can an ODB-II module tell me if the indicated mileage has ever been modified?
As far as I know ODB will report the mileage, but I'm not sure if there is any way to determine tampering.
Has the instrument cluster been replaced? If so, then they either need to reset it to the actual miles or place a sticker showing the mileage. It's usually placed along the driver door jam.
A simpler way would be to find out where it was serviced and get a service history. If it was serviced at the dealer, they usually record the mileage. There are also services like CarFAX. I've never used them, so I don't know how good they are.
