Daniel Burgess, HPI managing director, said: “Dealers are well aware that clocking itself isn’t illegal, but selling a clocked car without declaring its true mileage is.
“While there is rarely a legitimate reason to alter the mileage on a vehicle, Trading Standards estimates there are 50 mileage correction firms operating in Britain.
“Some of these companies will be exploiting a legal loophole that could help unscrupulous sellers make a fast profit at the expense of dealers and consumers alike. We’re calling for a change to the law and dealers should be too. Our e-petition will give motorists and the motor industry a chance for their voice to be heard.”
