I would definately return to the dealership and confront the manager. Keep a cool head and don't rant and rave. In my opinion, money should change hands, from his to yours! If I didn't get any satisfaction I would report them to the Attorney General's office. Most of them don't cater to mileage changes. Good luck and let us know what happens....CR

just cause the das print out shows an extra 40k miles doesnt mean thats the case. das software has a weird mind and the computer that is used has an effect. i cant tell you the countless number of cars i have worked on where the das print out shows the incorrect mileage. the only way to tell is by checking the mileage readings in the eis and me. also if the cluster was replaced and the tech didnt put in the correct mileage that has an effect.
