Odometer Mileage Statement

Greg Stone Greg Stone
How To Use

This review list is provided to inform you about this document in question and assist you in its preparation. Federal and most states require an odometer mileage statement when a used car or other similar vehicle is sold. Be accurate. Getting caught up in misrepresentations is not worth the hassle of being prosecuted vigorously by your local Attorney General’s office or by a Plaintiff’s attorney on behalf of the Buyer. Courts tend to be very much prejudiced in favor of the buyer of used cars — so be duly cautioned.

  1. Make multiple copies. Give one to each signatory. Keep one with the transaction file.
