Only illegal if you misrepresent the shown miles as actual miles at the time of sale. At least in California, there is an option on the bill of sale allowing the seller to indicate the miles exceed the mechanical limits of the odometer. That's what I've done in the past for odometers that I "tinkered' with.Originally posted by BillK:
By the way ... this is very very illegal
Same as here in NJOriginally posted by John D:
MN has two checkboxes:
"Exceeds mechanical limits"
"Does not reflect actual mileage"
As long as you check the box you're OK. If your state doesn't have similar, have the new owner sign a statement saying they acknowledge the Odo isn't actual mileage. Keep a copy for yourself!
