Odometer Rollback on Your Royal Palm Beach, FL Vehicle

Posted May 12, 2019 11:17 AM

 

How do Royal Palm Beach drivers know if an odometer is telling the truth?

Well, back in '86, Congress passed the Truth-in-Mileage Act to protect FL consumers against mileage fraud. It says a FL seller must certify the mileage reported is the actual mileage.

To have your odometer checked in Royal Palm Beach, FL, stop by Brake World:

Brake World
1213 N State Rd 7
Royal Palm Beach, FL 33411

 

If it isn't, the seller must say why; for example, maybe the odometer is past its mechanical limits. Some older odometers only go to 99,999 and then start over at 0. Or, the odometer has been tampered with, broken or replaced.

If the seller tells you the mileage isn't accurate, there's not much chance of putting a good number to it. And there's the unscrupulous seller who claims the reading is true, but it isn't. What can Royal Palm Beach vehicle owners do?

You can go to www.CarFax.com, where, for a small fee, they'll give you a comprehensive vehicle history search on your vehicle, showing local Royal Palm Beach, FL, ownership history, accident reports, total-loss events, manufacturer buybacks, Lemon reports and warranty status.

You can get a mileage history by checking with the local FL DMV (or wherever you happen to be) and other verified sources looking for inconsistencies in the mileage reported when the car was bought and sold. If there are signs of odometer rollback, now you'll know.

If so, proceed with caution. Or, negotiate a lower price. Or just walk away. There's always another vehicle.

Thank you for your amazing customer service. We appreciate you taking the time to fix my son’s car, which was the splash guard under the bumper sticking up. It was quick and they did not charge us today. quotes-image
