Odometer Tampering Case
Whilst the car itself is in good condition—with minimal points of concern—the real issue was the fact that there had been some ODOMETER TAMPERING.
The car was sold at auction in January 2020 with 218k, then a few months later, the new owner presented it for sale again with 141k. Along the line, nearly 80k have gone missing, which has been done to present the car with a much more appealing km reading. But it is FRAUD and DISHONEST.
Other evidence was along with the car: the service book had been ‘modified’ and recreated with a different one and falsified entries.
What they did was so wrong and unethical in so many areas, it infuriated me.
To think how many more cases like this slip through the cracks because the trusting buyer does not do enough checking, makes me shudder.
Avoid this happening to you and engage the services of an inspector who also does some preliminary or background research—like GERMAN PRECISION—to provide as much information as possible.
