It's an offence in NSW to interfere with an odometer reading, and the Motor Dealers and Repairers Act 2013 deems interference to be:
- altering the reading of the odometer
- removing or replacing the odometer
- rendering the odometer inoperative or inaccurate by any means whatsoever
- fitting a device capable of rendering the odometer inoperative or inaccurate.
If you suspect an odometer has been tampered with, you can report the matter to the NSW Office of Fair Trading. If they find that the law has been broken, they'll inform the trader and take the action required to protect other consumers.Report online
