What Would You Pay to Protect Yourself From Odometer Fraud?


Can you really put a price on your safety? How much would you try to save by passing up an opportunity for information that can save you thousands of dollars, along with your well being? Let’s think about something that can happen if you try to save a few dollars before buying a vehicle: like falling victim to odometer fraud. 

Over 450,000 vehicles are sold annually in the United States that have false odometer readings, according to the NHTSA. The estimated damage is over $1 billion dollars to American consumers annually. 

Worse than being saddled with the monetary cost extra repairs is what could happen in cases of mechanical failure due to inaccurate odometer readings. If you miss a scheduled service or maintenance because you’re simply unaware the car needs it, you, along with everybody else on the road, are at risk. 

Say you’re unaware that your timing belt needs to be replaced because of odometer fraud. You’re driving on the highway, and suddenly it gives out. Your engine is no longer running, you’re traveling 65+ mph on the highway, and you’re surrounded by cars doing the same. The possibilities of what could happen are horrendous.

That’s just one of many reasons as to why it’s important to know exactly how many miles your vehicle has, and not to fall victim to odometer fraud. So instead of spending thousands of dollars on repairs (not the worst case scenario), you can run a Vin check with us. Our VIN reports include:

  • Current state/last state to title the vehicle
  • Insurance claims 
  • Odometer reading
  • Brand history for the vehicle
  • Salvage history
  • Total loss history
  • Additional photos if sold through select vehicle auction yards

We get our information and DMV vehicle records from multiple reliable sources, including the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS), for the most comprehensive and accurate vehicle history reports we can provide.

A single ClearVin report costs $8.99: a fraction of the potential cost of not knowing the true history of your vehicle. So, before you buy a vehicle from a private seller, a dealership, or an auto auction, make sure to run a VIN decoder from ClearVIN and protect yourself from odometer fraud. Take the mystery out of history.
