Odometer Fraud in Arizona
My name is Floyd W. Bybee and I help consumers throughout the state of Arizona who are victims of odometer fraud. Whether your vehicle’s odometer has rolled back to reflect a lower mileage, there are remedies available to you.
Congress enacted the Federal Odometer Act in (1972) in order to stop the rampant rolling back of automobile odometers. Even though most cars and trucks today use electronic or digital odometers, the sale of vehicles with inaccurate or fraudulent misleading odometer readings is still common.
How To Determine if Odometer Has Been Rolled Back
If you purchased a vehicle that you think has more mileage than shows on the odometer, you should run a CarFax or AutoCheck vehicle history report. Either or both may show prior service or other records which reflect a higher mileage than when you purchased. See example CarFax report here.
If your vehicle has more mileage than advertised, or has had the odometer rolled back, you likely paid thousands of dollars more that the vehicle was worth. Moreover, you would likely have not purchased the vehicle if you had known that the odometer reading was not accurate.
The Odometer Act provides victims of odometer fraud with the right to recover the greater of either $10,000 or three times their actual damages, plus their attorney’s fees and court costs payed.
What To Do!
If you are an Arizona consumer and think that you are a victim of odometer fraud, I invite you to contact me either by phone or through my CONTACT PAGE. I will review the facts of your situation, and I will help you develop a plan to investigate the fraud and resolve it.
I look forward to helping you.
