Wonder if other manufacturers would condone this?

That’s a poor do isn’t it ?

I bet it goes on with lots of expensive niche vehicles as low mileages are believable and can alter the value so greatly

I hope it isn't going on with Morgans. There are a lot of low mileage cars about!!!!!
The term "garage queen" may come into it though.

Greed usually leads to dishonesty in one form or another.

I watched a man clock a BMW 2002 Turbo way back while I was on an audit. He did it on the dining room floor.
I played dumb.............

Sadly, pretty much every car with an OBD port can have its mileage set to whatever figure is required using a laptop and the right interface. Fast, cheap and easy.
Wouldn't be surprised if there are a great many dealers routinely tweaking the mileage downwards on any car that doesn't have an independent record of its mileage.

Worth always checking MoT records to see if there are mileage discrepancies.
If the selling dealer knowingly misrepresents the mileage, he will be breaking the law.

In the old days of the trade; dealers who “adjusted” mileages were known as Summertime Motors (always putting the clocks back)

Wouldn't there be discrepancies with the log book particularly where and older supposedly well maintained car is presented with low mileage ?

If this happened in the UK, It could only be rolled back as far as the last MOT presuming it was over 3 yrs old, younger than that you’d have to rely on service records.......but if they’re prepared to adjust the odometer.............
