    H1 odometer replacement

    Does anyone know the procedure that Hummer would have followed to replace a broken odometer? Iím looking at an H1 that has had its odometer replacement sticker in the door jamb. Question is why was the new odometer not set to the actual mileage of the Hummer and set at zero. The sticker says it was replaced at 4xxxx miles and it currently has less miles on the odometer.

    I could be wrong. But I believe it's illegal to adjust a speedometer.
    Back in the day some used car dealers would role back the numbers so they could charge more for the vehicle.

    Know your Bugs Bunny.... Very important.

    Usually, the claimed mileage of 4xxxx was the last mileage on the old odometer. The new odometer usually starts at 0000 miles. You could add both mileage to get a new claimed mileage.

    I have new odometers on the shelf for both on my Hummers (1995 and 2001) and I could swap them easily, but it would be hard to tell the true mileage then.

    Thanks guys. The guy selling it was upfront about the mileage but there are mileage issues on the car fax because 1 owner wasnít aware of the mileage and registered it with 2xxxx something miles.
