The State of Virginia is finally doing something to help used truck buyers from making a bad purchase.
Starting last week, vehicle registrations now show how many miles a vehicle had on it before it was sold and if the vehicle was involved in an accident or natural disaster. After all, that pristine used truck with low mileage may have a secret history, like being soaked by the floodwaters of a hurricane or missing miles that were rolled off the odometer.
This new registration system means a new coat of paint and a pine-tree air freshener can’t fool it. Great news for buyers in Virginia…now let’s see what other states follow the lead.
