Generally speaking, ALL GAUGES AND METERS CAN BE TEMPERED WITH.This is in the owners control.

If that is the case, the company provides guarantee of the engine life for say 1 Lac or 1.5 Lac kms. If the meter can be tampered, how the company will come to know the actual kms run by an engine if a consumer complains of any engine problem with a tampered meter?

Hi,
As a genral rule meters can be tampered and its very common with taxi used cars for taking advantage of warranty. Most of the owner used cars meters are not tampered. In case of doubt you can ask for owners service manual and check for service done or even consult authorised service center for getting vehicle history.

U just take all service invoices & trace it. Ask him to give u atleast one service invoice per year. U uself will conclude if it's true or false.

Else try to get somebody known person at that perticular brand's service station & try to dig up the history of the car.

Understand one thing, no one is fool to sell of the good conditioned car......
