Is there any way to tell if a w124 1994 e320 has has the mileage counter set back/ tampered with. I'm interested in purchasing an auto of the aforementioned type. The CarFax says that there seeing a mileage inconsistency, it reads...

Incorrect mileage figures are input all the time. What mileage is showing on the actual odometer?

If it's got a leather driver's seat post a picture of the base up here and we may be able to take an educated guess correct to 20,000 miles or so, so long as it hasn't been changed out or refurbed.........

A lot of the time when a car goes for a repair, gets smogged, etc... the tech writes a "3" instead of an "8" or something and you get this.

CarFAX Will change its record if you can show it was entered wrong.

Unless it's 50,000 or more you might not be able to tell by looking at the car but you can ask for service records, smog, etc...

What do the rest of the milage records say? Is it consistent up to 2009 then nothing till 2011?

Or is there a jump from 2007 to 2009.

Could very easily be an input error.
