Here in the United States alone, changing the odometer readings is a federal offense, and it sets back the consumers by $1 billion annually.
Several dealerships and individual car sellers have confessed guilty of odometer rollback, and it is not something that will likely stop anytime soon. NHA estimates that around 1.6 million cars are now on the road that likely are victims of odometer tampering or odometer rollback. This number can be reduced if the customers become more aware of the tampering and report it to the authorities on time.
Some dealerships tamper with the odometer readings by disconnecting the odometer, resetting the odometer, and altering the odometer reading. If the customer thinks that their dealer sold them a car with an odometer rollback, they must immediately contact the professionals from Allen Stewart and let them handle the case.
The customer should have all the dealer's documents and show the attorneys the proof that they are a victim of odometer tampering. The best way to determine whether the odometer reading is not the actual mileage is by comparing the records with the mileage shown.
The customers can always get the vehicle history report and know how good their car is. The report also shows the odometer reading of previous owners and the average mileage driven by each of them. The customer needs to have the vehicle identification number to know the vehicle history report.
Unknowingly purchasing a car of odometer rollback has negative repercussions on the buyer. The most prominent being they will spend thousands on a car they think covers only a small distance, whereas the vehicle has traveled great distances through the years.
