Enter the odometer reading from the motor vehicle, unless the motor vehicle is exempt from the odometer requirement. If there is any reason to doubt the odometer reading does not accurately reflect “actual” mileage, check the box to indicate “not actual mileage.” If the vehicle has more than 99,999 on the odometer reading and it is a 5-digit odometer, the box “in excess of mechanical limits” must be checked.
