Possibly it was all of the above plus an odometer hack.  38K on a 2004?
That comes to 7.6K/year, probably less than half the typical mileage for
this vintage.

My sister-in-law has my aunt's 87 Civic.  When my aunt gave it up 6
years ago, it had 6000 miles on it.  It now has under 20,000 miles on it.

My mother bought, new, an 06 Scion xB.  My father now drives it; it has
6000 miles on it.

This is not at all unusual.

The operative word was "typical."  My 2005 has 38K.  I'm retired and have no
commute.   Encountered a fellow driving a 2006 a few days ago.  He has 65K.

37 K in 2 years on the 2007.

With as many miles, my brakes look like new and aren't rusted despite the
winter salt.  I'd really have to work at ruining my brakes in 38K miles.
