1 minuteread

Ensure mileage is genuine when buying a used car: Buying a car, whether new or used, should be an exciting experience, but it is nerve-wracking at the identical time! Undoubtedly, you’ll check the bodywork, hear the engine, examine the tires, and take it on a test drive. However, low mileage is thought to be a point for a vehicle and it is falsified, called ‘clocking’, thereby reducing the mileage and increasing the value.

In the first instance, we advise you to follow these simple tips to test if your car might need been clocked:

  1. How does the general wear and tear compare to the low mileage?
  2. Do the pedal rubbers, wheel or gear knob look newer than the remainder of the car?
  3. In older vehicles do the numbers on the odometer line up correctly (not relevant on digital displays)?

If you think the mileage on a car isn’t genuine, you can:

  1. Check the MOT certificates and repair documents for the consistency of mileage readings.
  2. Contact previous owners named on the logbook and ask what the mileage was after they sold the car.
  3. Get mileage information via a history check from a reputable dealer.
