Well for a start, any vehicle with a 'mileage inconsistency' would be worth less than one without surely.
So not only do you have the inconsistency (in the non-beneficial direction), but you also have the history issue as a result, and - what would be at the front of my mind - is an easy way Mitsubishi could reject any warranty claim (assuming they check that/ decide based on it). Hopefully that doesn't invalidate your warranty - even if you bought it completely unaware of anything. May be worth trying to get that on paper.
I wonder what the legal position is where the purchaser was unaware, and did not undertake the background Carfax (or equivalent) check? It's clear foul play in my eyes, as the numbers are too different and too random for it to be a mistake, and I am sure there is no shortage of case law to support that.
You've had the car for less than a year - so maybe you are automatically protected by law for a certain period (i'm not familiar with US law).
Even if you could get it corrected, it would be impossible to know the exact mileage, as you have a period of 7 months between the 14K figure and the 3k figure, with no recorded data.
