Default tampered mileage counter

Hi everybody,

looking to buy a used Toyota. How can you detect that the mileage dial
hasn't been tampered with?

If the numbers are unequal, it could be an indication.

If its been serviced at a dealer then they can provide service record. New
electronic speedo can be turned back (or replaced) and you'll never know
unless you run into the previous owner and he tells you it had a gazillion
miles on it. New brake/clutch pads are a giveaway as is a sagging seat and
worn carpet.

Buy from a private party with service history documentation including
mileage at time of service.
