So far, here's what I've found out:
According to Experian (A report the dealership chain JDByrider chooses for all cars) the vehicle's odometer was tampered with roughly 2 months before I purchased it.
Geico is probably the worst insurer ever, they tried to withhold a rental car even though I PAY for it extra on the policy, they've double talked non-stop and even went as far as to offer my loan company before even giving me an estimated value of the car
As far as the fire goes, we're still in the dark - everything is toast in the engine compartment and on the firewall, most of the interior remained in identifiable condition save for the instrument cluster (haha, how funny??? - I should note I had noticed dark impressions/greasy fingerprints on parts of some of the numbers on the odometer before...) and the fire damage remained primarily before the A pillar.
I miss my bull
But I love this friggin' Edge I've got. It's got the new Ti-VCT
V6 and oh my god my vulcan was nothing in comparision. I just.. Don't like it's face.
Amusing note: This greeted me above the 2nd row - funny to know Ford is still using it half a decade later...
