  2. Select the type of the odometer (5- or 6-digit), write down the current mileage of the vehicle, and indicate the date of the reading.
  3. Confirm the reading reflects actual mileage, exceeds mechanical limits, or there is no actual mileage and you need to certify the odometer discrepancy. Often there is a blank display or the odometer has rolled over. Check one of the boxes that applies to your situation.
