Odometer Rollbacks Rise

By Staff Writer December 16, 2022

Alarming new numbers from CARFAX show odometer rollbacks are on the rise nationwide. More than 1.9 million vehicles on the road have had their odometer rolled back - a 7% increase from the previous year. Consumers lose an average of $4,000 in value from unknowingly buying a rolled back car, and that doesn’t include unexpected maintenance costs.

States nationwide with the most vehicles with rolled back odometers.

“Many people think odometer fraud disappeared with the invention of digital odometers,” said Emilie Voss, public relations director for CARFAX. “But that couldn’t be further from the truth. We’re still seeing the number of vehicles on the road with a rolled back odometer rise year-over-year.”
