Unfortunately since my father died we now have to sell the car. Should we approach renault to get them to put the mileage back (tho we are not exactly sure what to), or simply sell it as is, explaining to any prospective buyer what happened? It's a pity it'll wipe about 500 of the value of the car, (although we do have bigger problems to think about ATM).

Hi damo_mc.

I had a "mileage correction" fix to a customers Scenic display.
It had jumped around 50K.

It cost me 80 to correct the mileage, all back to as it was before fault.

It is not illegal to alter/correct the recorded mileage.

However if one mis-represents the mileage to a purchaser of that vehicle then that is an offence.
