ODO2 OC…….YEARS OR NEWER” :19

THE CHANGE APPLIES TO ALL TRANSFERS OF VEHICLES, INCLUDING SALE BY A DEALER, PRIVATE SALE, OR VEHICLES RECEIVED THROUGH GIFT OR INHERITANCE.
HEY SAYS THE INFORMATION IS VERY IMPORTANT.

ODOMETERS WENT FROM A MECHANICAL SYSTEM TO DIGITAL AROUND 20 YEARS AGO. HEY SAYS THEY STILL GET CASES OF ODOMETER FRAUD WITH THE USE OF DIGITAL SYSTEMS.

HE SAYS HAVING THE ODOMETER STATEMENTS WHEN A VEHICLE IS SOLD GIVES A PAPER TRAIL THAT MAKES IT EASIER TO GO BACK AND SEE IF THERE IS A DISCREPANCY IN THE AMOUNT OF MILEAGE.

ANY TRANSFER WHERE THE ODOMETER STATEMENT WAS PREVIOUSLY NOT REQUIRED WILL CONTINUE TO BE EXEMPT UNDER THE RULE CHANGE.
