Protect Yourself from
What is odometer fraud?
Because low mileage is an attractive quality in a used vehicle, sometimes sellers tamper with the odometer to give the illusion that the vehicle was driven less than it actually was by “clocking” or rolling back the miles.
Protect against odometer fraud:
- Compare mileage on the vehicle with the title. Also ask the seller for maintenance records or emission test records.
- Check the Vin Insights® report to confirm the current mileage on the vehicle aligns to the previously reported mileage.
- Take the vehicle to a mechanic for a thorough inspection.
How Vin Insights helps?
In an VinInsights report data sources are thoroughly reviewed and odometer readings are arranged in chronological order to ensure there are no potential mileage discrepancies. The odometer check then summarizes the data and alerts you to any potential red flags.
