What to do if the Odometer Reading is Not the Actual Mileage?

Posted December 28, 2021 by allenstewartpc

Checking the odometer reading before buying a new vehicle is very important. Since one of the key factors that determine the price of the vehicle is how many miles the vehicle has covered in its lifetime.
Therefore, you must be very careful while reading the miles on the odometer, and you must double-check if the odometer has been tampered with.

When buying a used vehicle, you need to check the odometer readings and determine whether the vehicle still gives the mileage as mentioned. Odometer readings and mileage are two different entities.

Before buying, you must look at the odometer readings and the car's mileage. The odometer reading shows the miles that the vehicle has covered. The mileage is the fuel consumption of the vehicle per mile.

If the odometer readings are not tampered with, the car's mileage will be accurate to what the seller is claiming to be. But if the odometer readings have been tampered with, then the number of miles covered in the odometer reading will be reset to zero, which will change the mileage.

If you think the dealer sold you a car with an odometer rollback, you can first ask the dealership about the change. Report them about the tampering, and then it will be a legal case which can be dealt, with the help of attorneys from Allen Stewart.

If you're suspicious, you can ask the dealer to show you the vehicle's title. Although you can have a rough estimate about how many miles the vehicle might have covered in a year. A car might cover a distance of around 10,000 miles or 15,000 miles in a year.

For a car older than ten years, the reading on the odometer should be anywhere between 150,000 miles to 200.000 miles. So, check the odometer reading and guess an estimate of whether the reading is accurate or not.
