Anyone who's ever shopped for a used car has seen these words in classified ads: "LOW MILEAGE". But can you be sure the numbers on the dash are true -- or have they been rolled back to inflate the value of the car? Computer hackers know how to roll back even digital odometers, costing you big bucks. Rolling back odometers is illegal, but it's a scam that's growing. Automotive experts say the best way to protect yourself against hidden problems in used cars is to do your homework before buying. Compare the mileage in the CARFAX Report with the mileage on the odometer. If it doesn't match up, don't buy that car.

13 Car Buying Mistakes - How Auto Dealerships rip you off - by The Homework Guy
http://www.thehomeworkguy.com/ How do Car Dealers take advantage of
you? 13 different car buying mistakes are presented in this video. Learn
about Car Salesmen and Auto Dealerships dirtiest tricks and how they rip
people off from Consumer Advisor Kevin Hunter, known as "The Homework Guy."
On this video, he uncovers '13 common Car Buying Mistakes' made by car
shoppers, that you should avoid. You'll also learn how to watch out for the
many vehicle scams sold by both new and used car dealers. These include
things like theft protection scams, GAP insurance that you likely won't
need or can get much cheaper from your own agent, and extended warranties
that can be completely inappropriate for some car buyers. Discover how you
can save time and money on your next new or used car purchase by doing your
homework first, and then going car shopping as an informed buyer. Visit The
Homework Guy website at: http://www.thehomeworkguy.com or find us on

It's definitely a buyer beware world out there! If you watched the video
"Confessions of a car dealers backroom" you need to see this video. By
understanding what mistakes to avoid, you'll not only become a smarter car
buyer, but you'll also better understand what not to tell a car dealer when
buying a car. It's true that you can play all your cards up front with an
honest dealer, but unfortunately, they represent the minority of dealer
owners. Be smart, do your homework, and you'll come home with a car deal
that's good for you and the dealer. After all, that's what fairness is all
about. We don't endorse anyone being ripped off, and that includes some
customers who think it's 'justice' to turn tables and try to 'steal' a car
from a dealer. Everything we talk about has to do with fairness and
honesty, and that works both ways. Respect the dealers right to make money
in your quest to get a fair and honest car deal, proving to them you're an
honest person too. It's this kind of attitude by car dealers and consumers
alike that will change the car business. We wish you the best!
Speedometer reset procedure
Our first video did not include enough detail. So, we've made a new video
that should tell you everything you need to know to perform the reset
procedure. Not many cars before 2000 will have a reset, but many of the
newer one's do. Unfortunately not many of the service manuals will tell
you if there is a reset procedure. Most chryslers after 2000 do have one.

Confessions from a Car Dealer's Backroom
It's a game of psychological warfare, said one current car dealer "money
man," whose identity On the Money kept private. These salesmen are looking
for customers who are "as dumb as possible," he said. The bottom line for
customers is that they don't have to buy anything that's offered in the
finance office of the dealership.

Used Car Scam (The Today Show)
Today Investigates the Nation's biggest used car scam.
Buying a used car? Don't just take the seller's word about the car's
You can use a car's vehicle identification number (VIN) to get information
including whether the car is stolen or has been in a major accident or a
Since Jan. 30, consumers have been able to research cars through the
National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS), a program of the
U.S. Department of Justice. The online database includes information for
about 73% of the country's auto population, gleaned from state agencies,
junk- and salvage-yard organizations, and insurance companies.
Currently information from 38 states is available, and all states are
required to fully participate by Jan. 1, 2010.
Visit nmvtis.gov, click on one of the listed providers and follow the
prompts. Expect to pay between $2 and $4 for a report, because the
authorizing law required that federal funds not be used for this database.
Used-car reports from commercial companies, like Carfax and Experian's
AutoCheck, have a higher price tag but draw information from a wider
variety of sources.
A single report from AutoCheck costs $14.99 (unlimited access for 60 days
costs $24.99) and includes information from all states as well as from some
sources not found in the NMVTIS database.
When buying a used car, you need to verify the VIN so you are not a victim
of this scam:
Here's How to Find Your Car's VIN
Locate your car's unique DNA - its unique vehicle identification number.
VINs are normally located in several locations on a car, but the most
common places are:
- On the door frame/door post of the front doors (usually driver's but
- On the dash near the windshield
- On the engine itself (machined pad on front of engine)
- On the car's firewall
- In the left-hand inner wheel arch
- On the steering wheel/steering column
- On the radiator support bracket
There is a chart that gives further information (by car line) on both the
location of the VIN plate and which character in your VIN represents your
year of production and specific engine on a used car website, but they have
limited the listings to only import cars since those are the car lines in
which they specialize.
Alternatively, you can call the consumer relations department for the
vehicle manufacturer or visit a local new car dealer and ask for the
location of the VIN
It is often etched into multiple locations on any vehicle.
