Was Your Car’s Odometer Illegally Altered Without Disclosure?
According to the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (SCDMV), “both dealers and private sellers are required to record the actual mileage on the title of a vehicle during an ownership transfer if the vehicle is less than twenty years old AND the vehicle’s date of manufacture is 2011 or newer.” (See the SCDMV’s website). As a consumer, you have every right to expect that the seller of your car complied with these requirements.
If it turns out that a car that you bought seems to have more wear and tear on it than you would expect for its age, you may have been impacted by automobile fraud in the form of an odometer violation. To discuss ways to verify the wrongdoing, consult with one of our automobile fraud lawyers at Hays Cauley, P.C.
