    Default What is the Statute of Limitations on Odometer Fraud

    A car owner in New Jersey purchased a used car from a dealership. Five years later, when getting ready to sell the car, a Carfax check showed a flag for an odometer discrepancy. Is it too late to sue the dealership for selling a car with a rolled back odometer?

    Default Re: What is the Statute of Limitations on Odometer Fraud

    The car owner needs to keep in mind that Carfax is not always accurate, and it could be that the flag is in error. That said, if the owner can prove fraud by the seller, then it remains possible to sue for fraud, as New Jersey has a six year statute of limitations for fraud (and breach of contract).

    The car owner should get a reality check on the odometer issue from a competent mechanic -- if it is a Carfax error, the problem can be addressed with Carfax. If it was a rollback, the dealership may not have been aware of the issue, and even after five years may be willing to do something to make things right without the need for litigation.
