You'll only find out if they had it serviced at an Acura dealership. If the car was never serviced at Acura it's going to be hard to tell.
I thought there were some "powder" thing that makes mark when its rolled back, indicating that it was tampered.

It's every two years, but only if you live in an area that requires it and if the car is at least six years old. Where I live (Inyo County, California), no periodic smog checks are required.NSXB said:Here in CA we have to have the car smog checked (emissions compliant) every year or every two years, I forget exactly.
I am assuming you are talking about putting the drill on the end on the speedo cable?

:biggrin: LMAO for some reason about that one:biggrin:Dtrigg said:Pedal wear, seat wear, seat belt wear, etc. might not be a good indicator if the car was used for a lot of highway miles. That is unless the previous owner was a real squirmer.

there are small rings that separate the odometer digits.... these get flipped upon tamper to a color other than the black seen on your cars[ i hope...]. i got this from a longtime honda gm, technique used thruout company.
screws scratched up on the driver knee panel [ below steering wheel...] would be an important clue someone was up near the odo, disconnect or flipping.
imho.... i think paint loss on the wipers can clue you into the fact you're looking at a hi-mile queen....i would like to study that angle...
be nice to me, i'm an old man. i'll delete this if it's mumbojumbo. tia
And to think there are members that swoop down and pound on people when they haven't used the "Search" component of the site first. There was another freshened up post two days back.SPA_S2000 said:
