Q: Hi, so I'm just wondering if There's a way to change the ODOMETER to a different number?

asked by on

So I'm just wondering if there's a way to change what my Toyota 4Runner reads when it comes to the ODOMETER... I'm asking this because it's 1. My moms car (not mine) 2. She keeps track of the miles I use and if it doesn't match up I'm usually not able to use it for a while. 3. I'm tired of getting caught with a lye. 4. I'm 25 years old and I don't want to be treated like a kid when it comes to me going out and the distance I'm going is the only worry for my parents. 20 miles is too far in their minds. So please if anyone's know a trick pls help me.

My car has 92518 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The mileage cannot be tampered with and it is unlawful to do so if it could be. The cluster would need to be removed and sent to an authorized repair facility if it needs repairs and they are not able to alter the mileage either.
