Odometer fraud is one of the most common types of automobile fraud. The sellers of used cars always look for ways on how to lower mileage on a car which would increase the valuation of the vehicle. Odometer tampering is illegal, and below listed are three ways in which you can detect odometer fraud.
1 – Service Record – The easiest way to judge an odometer fraud is to get the service record for the particular car. Even if the record is not up to date, it can give you a fair idea of the car odometer being tampered with.
2 - Body Condition - Another method to determine odometer fraud is to inspect the bodyline carefully. If you see visible signs of deterioration on the car’s body, you can suspect an odometer rollback. A car that has been on the roads for a long time is more likely to have scratches or dents.
3 - Check the Tires- If the car had been used less frequently, the owner would not have changed the tires. If a car has got new tires and the odometer shows fewer kilometers, you can definitely suspect a rollback. Usually the tires are changed after 20,000 miles.
4 - Check the Pedals- Look at the pedals carefully to evaluate how they have worn out during their journey. Generally, it takes around one Lakh kilometers for the pedal to lose its grooves significantly. If you find the pedals are in a bad condition while the odometer shows less reading, you can be sure of being subjected to odometer fraud.
