With these simple tips, you expose the speedometer scammers

Nearly every third used car is sold with a manipulated odometer. But there are a few Tricks to expose an incorrect mileage.

Bonn - every third sold in Germany used cars is not true of the mileage, the ADAC and the police. On what but buyer can look for in order to escape the rip-off?

"A low mileage and a relatively affordable price can be a first note," says Gert Schleichert from the Auto Club Europa (ACE). Also verwohnte interiors with supposedly low mileage should make skeptical.

pieces of evidence

"in My opinion the manipulation of the speedometer falls stalls in the rule, on any discrepancies in the documentation ," says Thorsten Rechtien from the Tüv Rheinland. To could not 100% protect motorists prior to the fraud.

" A closer look at the repair bills or service book will always be worth it. the maintenance intervals, the mileage and the date are noted," says Ulrich Köster of the German motor vehicle trade (ZDK). Also on protocols of the main and exhaust gas examination (HU), mileage, and mileage entered on oil change sticker or tag on the vehicle. All the stamps and entries from see, however, in an old service book is equal to new, caution is advised.

owner contact

Therefore, only an in-depth Research brings clarity about the true speedometer. This includes the control of Documents or Ölkarten in the engine compartment and the little sticker on the A-pillar. Is that the next change in about 50,000 km is due, may be something wrong. Because usually a oil change is due , at the latest after 30,000 miles , in rare cases, after 40,000 kilometers. A call to the previous owner of the seller provides information about how many kilometers he has his car sold. The Name is in the registration certificate part II.

speedometer manipulations are not for buyers only expensive, they can also result in damage to the engine. For example, if the upcoming maintenance with a component change is not observed. the The fraud is also considered a Crime . The forgery comes out, advises Köster criminal charges against the counterfeiters and to request, if possible, an appropriate compensation from the seller of the vehicle.

diagnostic software

Verwohnte interior spaces, as well as missing or sloppily completed service booklets are, however, no clear evidence of tampering. Can help of digital tools such as special adapters for the interface of the vehicle diagnosis. The usually sits in the A-pillar on the driver's side and has direct access to the on-Board electronics. the With special Apps, it is possible to check whether the Airbags have been triggered in an accident. Also, some Apps can read data on mileage, distances, and errors of memory. However, these results are only as good as the data stored in the individual control modules. Differ this, because they have been previously tampered with, the information.

A specialist workshop to cover any fraud by the errors and maintenance interval-memory reads . Thus, the partially mitprotokollierten mileage with the speedo displayed compare. Also, the production period of speedometer and control devices identified in the workshop. You are younger than the day of Production (not the date of the first registration) of the car, may be something wrong.

digital speedometer display can be manipulated

in older cars with a mechanical speedometer nor the odometer readings turning back, work newer just with digital tools, so Schleichert: professionals with computer skills can manipulate via digital interfaces to the car, the speedometer display. Often this happens in the case of vehicles which are disproportionately driven much, about from the outside service learning. Often the up to 80,000 kilometers in a year, the cars will be sold after two years. A cheater could turn back the mileage to around 25,000 kilometres, without at first sight a suspicion arises. Because, on average, a car driving in Germany, some 12,000 kilometers in a year, a lot of drivers are up to 20,000 miles or more on the road.
