Odometer Rollback On Your Dawsonville Georgia Auto

by admin on October 17, 2013

How do you know if an odometer is telling the truth?

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

To have your odometer checked in Dawsonville Georgia, stop by Tower Auto Repair :

Tower Auto Repair
Hwy 53/GA 400
Dawsonville, Georgia 30534
706-265-6152

If it isn’t, the seller must say why; like maybe the odometer is past its mechanical limits. Some older odometers only go to 99,999 miles 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’s not so. What can you do?

First, you can go to www.CarFax.com, where for a small fee, they’ll give you a comprehensive vehicle history search on your SUV, showing local Dawsonville Georgia 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 Dawsonville Georgia DMV (or wherever you happen to be) and other verified sources looking for inconsistencies in the mileage reported when the car’s bought and sold. If there are signs odometer rollback, now you’ll now.

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