U.S. odometer fraud is pervasive, says NHTSA

Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that there are more than 450,000 cases of odometer fraud per year in the United States.

“Odometer fraud puts the safety and well-being of consumers at risk because it misleads them about wear and tear on the vehicle they are buying,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Norman Y. Mineta.
