The mileage of a vehicle is one of the main factors taken into account when buying a second-hand car, since, as a general rule, its use at a quantitative level can serve as a reference to know what its condition is. It is logical, then, that meeting a rigged odometer be one of the biggest concerns of a buyer.
On a recurring basis, mafias that engage in such practice to make money come to light, but if you are looking for a used car, we want to reassure you: you can know if they have tricked the odometer of your future car for just 9 euros.
And it is thanks to the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT), which is the only one who can give you the only officer who cannot have been manipulated in any way by anyone, the official car report.
This document is a kind of file with everything you might want to know about a car in question: date of first registration, if it is up to date with the payment of taxes, possible fines … and the ITV history.
This last point is the point of interest in this case, since when the registration is carried out, the number of kilometers the vehicle has been presented to the appointment is fixed with, so any mileage that is less than this, leaves more than clear the scam.
And best of all, it is really easy to acquire. Thus, there is a simplified version that is completely free and a more complete version that you have to pay for, but the amount is laughable when compared to the peace of mind it can give you: 8.59 euros. In addition, accessing it to request it is also quite simple: by phone, from the DGT app or in person at the Traffic Headquarters.
