Default Re: How to detect *Odometer Fraud*

A post about from my thread on the extent some people go in our country to hide their real odometer reading. A few quick queries here and there and beans spilled out that the odo is tempered hugely.

Narrow escape for me, shudder to think about some poor soul who will fall for the trick!

So, essentially his car had covered twice the kms than what odo showed and this odo was backed with service history from Toyota! Can you imagine?
