The German police estimate that one in three used cars in the country has an incorrect mileage. And the funny thing is: officially rolling back a counter is not prohibited at all in Germany. The ADAC - the German equivalent of the ANWB - put it to the test and found that even garages and car experts cannot detect a professionally reduced mileage.
Moreover, it still appears to be very easy to manipulate a counter reading. ADAC researchers bought a device over the internet and tried to get the mileage down on three random cars - a 2019 Ford Kuga, a 2020 Opel Grandland and a 2019 Peugeot 208. They got the job done in minutes.
The ADAC therefore advises buyers not to blindly sail on the number of kilometers on the counter. Are there no invoices, maintenance booklets and/or inspection reports with a used car? Then consider walking away. An incorrect mileage can cost you a lot of money in maintenance and repairs. After all, a car that has run more than its counter indicates, is therefore more worn out.
