According to Ismail Ertug (S&D, DE), “About 5 to 12 percent of used cars in national sales and 30 to 50 percent of cars sold cross-border in the EU have a manipulated odometer”.

In a draft resolution voted in the Transport and Tourism Committee last April, MEPs asked the European Commission to present a new legislative framework that includes national registers for collecting mileage data, which are accessible across-borders. Buyers of a second-hand car should be able to verify the accuracy of its odometer reading, regardless of the EU country in which it was previously registered, they add. EUCARIS, the European car and driving license information system, could be used as a cost-effective solution for the exchange of odometer readings across the EU.
