Happy New Year and Welcome 2021! Everyone is anxious to put the challenges of 2020 in our collective rearview mirror. The IAA Team is eager and excited to dive right into new products, features and partnerships that will benefit our buyers, while keeping you up to date on important industry news.
Odometer Rule Disclosure Exemption Change
Odometer fraud is a challenge due to vehicles lasting longer and being resold more often as a result. To help reduce odometer fraud, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued changes to Odometer Disclosure Requirements taking effect in most states beginning Jan. 1, 2021. The odometer disclosure exemption will change from 10 to 20 years, meaning model year 2011 vehicles will not become exempt until 2031, model year 2012 until 2032, and so forth. This is positive change for all buyers to know the true value of a vehicle they are purchasing.
