Used car con job - Buyer discovers second-hand car has travelled 18,000km more than advertised

He sent his second-hand car for servicing a few days after he bought it.

To his surprise, he was told that the Honda Accord's odometer, which records the distance travelled, had been tampered with.

The car's actual mileage was at least 18,000km more than the advertised mileage, said the owner, who wanted to be known only as Mr Kan.

The employee in an IT company is one of seven consumers who have filed complaints with or have given feedback to the Consumers Association of Singapore (Case) after suspecting that their cars' odometer had been tampered with.

Case had four such cases in the previous three years.

All the cases involved consumers who bought second-hand cars. A different second-hand dealer was involved in each case.
