Mitsubishi Lancer 2010: Is it possible to tamper with the odometer?

Answered by CarsGuide 30 Jan 2015

Yes, it is possible to rewind the speedo. A 2010 Lancer would be expected to have done between 80,000km and 130,000km on average. If you suspect that a car has had its speedo tampered with you could check the service record and see the dates and the odometer readings from each service to see if the current reading fits the pattern of past use.

Mitsubishi Lancer 2011: Front wheels locking up

Answered by CarsGuide 15 Feb 2013

It sounds like the system is not working, and you should have it checked.

Answered by CarsGuide 23 Nov 2012

It does sound like a computer related problem, as you say. Go back to the dealer and be assertive, let them know you are not happy and won't go away until the problem is fixed. By all means contact Mitsubishi direct and request the factory get involved.
