RMI calls for servicing mileage checks

THE Retail Motor Industry Federation has called on dealers to record vehicle mileages at every service as part of a major new industry-wide campaign to stamp out 'clocking'. The RMI Mileage Scheme will help to build more detailed vehicle mileage histories, using data collected at every opportunity during servicing, MOTs and repairs.

Sue Brownson, president of the RMI's National Franchised Dealers Association, said: 'Clocking is a blight on our industry, costing the British motorist £100million a year and the motor industry even more in both financial terms and damaged credibility. She said the new scheme would be particularly useful because cars do not undergo an MOT inspection until they are three years old - which means three years without an official mileage record.
