Odometer Rollback Case

» Print This Page

Many people think odometer rollbacks are a thing of the past, since most new cars have electronic odometers to display mileage.  However, odometer rollbacks still occur with some frequency.

In one of our cases, our clients purchased a used vehicle from a local buy-here-pay-here car lot.  Later, when they took the car in for service to a mechanic, they discovered that the car had previously had service work done at a higher odometer mileage.   This meant that the odometer had been rolled back before they bought the car.

We were able to negotiate a quick settlement on behalf of our clients, who were able to return the car, void the contract, and recover their incidental and consequential damages.
