Speedometer manipulation

Speedometer manipulation is one of the most common methods of fraud in used car sales. Experts estimate that every third car already has a false speedometer reading. The manipulation of the mileage is a punishable offence – a prison sentence of up to one year can be the result.

Speedometer manipulation is particularly tempting because of its simple implementation combined with the comparatively high profits that can be achieved by an attractive mileage. However, in many cases experts can prove the manipulation, since the mileage is also stored in other storage locations. In this case, a reliable value appraisal is the ideal way to know the true mileage of a vehicle.
