Default 2002/03 CRV and km (kilometers)

Yesterday I tried to buy 2002 CRV.
I took my friend, who sell used cars everyday, to help me in check me this car.
Outside car was quite nice, inside not, but no horror , price was not huge,
Old, summer tires was bad, winter tires was not bad, but...
seler tells that car has 120 000 km on km counter, but driving wheel was very, very used.
My friend tells me, that this car has downgraded km conuter, and in real this car
took over 200 000 km.

Is it posible to downgrade digital km (miles) counter on CRV?
Is this easy?
(unfortunetly, in Poland it is popular to downgrade analog counters
in older cars, selers are owful!)

Best regards

You could try doing a carfax on it.... but if its not in the US, then perhaps
that won't work.

Can you find out if its ever been services at a dealer? If you found the
dealer it was serviced at, you could ask what mileage they have in their
records for the vehicle.

Unless that is the same dealer you are buying from...

So...
I checked car by VIN... but car was serviced at dealer to 60 000 km.
Dealer tells only about warranty repairs...

I trust to my friend, who tels that counter was changed to get lower km on.

--------------------------------------

If it's an All Wheel Drive model, you should probably stay away from it
anyhow, since they mixed old and new tires, which destroys the rear
differential clutch pack. Did you notice a scraping / grinding noise
when you did tight turns at low speed?

That's the first symptom of an AWD Honda that hasn't had the special
fluid in the differential changed regularly (50,000 Km). Any AWD Honda
can have that symptom, including the Element, Pilot, HR-V, CR-V . . .
