You won't be able to return the car, but, if you find enough evidence, and if the transaction wasn't that long ago, you may be able to bring litigation against the person who sold you the car.

Tampering with odometer readings is a federal offense.

Whether tampering is done by a backyard mechanic who resets the odometer before trading for a new car, by a person who buys a gadget to keep miles from registering on the odometer, by a dealer who contracts with a "reconditioning" firm, or by a multi-state used car mill, odometer tampering violates state and Federal Laws, and is punishable by fines, imprisonment or both.

What can i do if my carfax report shows a rollback on the odometer because a mechanic performing the state inspection entered in the wrong mileage?

If your Carfax report shows a rollback on the odometer due to a mistake by the state inspector, try contacting where you had it inspected. If that is not feasible, contact the State and then Carfax.

1995 XR7 Odometer repair replace Analog with V8 Can it be taken apart and repaired or is the whole cluster changed Speedometer OK Odometer stopped. If done by shop does repair show up CarFax?

I had a 1993 Crown Vic that the odometer stopped working. I found out the government is very picky about messing around with it. You can replace it with a new one or a used one, but you must have a sticker put on the car, most of the time in the driver side door jam, that states that the odometer has been replaced, the mileage of the old odometer and the mileage of the new odometer. I found it was best to have a shop do this as they take care of the necessary red tape. (I know it is a little more costly, but in this case I felt the shop was the better way to go) It very well could show up on CarFax (some repair shops share data with Carfax - others don't). That is the type of thing that i would want to know if I was buying a car. If you do it yourself, there probably will not be a carfax report, unless you report it to them.
