JAPANESE REGISTRATION CERTIFICATE
Japanese Auction report
It is a sad fact that the majority of imported Japanese vehicles sold by dealers do not have the correct odometer reading. Winding back odometers (“clocking”) is widespread in grey imports. Around 80% of cars from dealers have been found to be wound back between 50,000 to 150,000km.
In Japan, cars have to be registered every two years. Part of the inspection is an odometer check and the odometer reading is recorded together with the owner details. These watermarked documents state the odometer reading at the time of the last two registrations going back four years from the date of export.
Included is the English translation.
We can retrieve the registration documents of ANY make/model exported after 2004.
