Default Possible to change mileage odometer on the TITLE? Details inside.

First post on this site:

Ok so I had my car serviced at a GM manufacturer and had a 4.10 rear end put in. They wrote down the original miles when they installed it. I drove it for years like this and (speedometer off as well) and just last month I bought a predator to correct the speedometer error. Well I went back to GM and they did calculations and said my car read 11,008 miles more than it should have because of this higher rear end ratio. So they reset it back to what it should of actually been for me. My concern is, when I moved states and took the car with me I re-did the title and gave them the odometer mileage. Now at 56,219 GM reset the mileage to 45,211. So that leads to my question:

is it possible to send off and have the people on the title change to show that the actual mileage is not the 54,xxx miles (mileage 4 months ago that they put down when I moved states) but that it rather is only 45,211 miles as of today....

Yes you can have them change it. You have to contact the secretary of state

Awesome, now next question. How do I go about proving to them that that is my new mileage? Submit a picture? Take it somewhere in person?

Thanks!

Documentation will be required for each step, from the GM place to the final inspection when someone actually comes out to your home to see the car. Paperwork, paperwork, paperwork when it comes to this stuff. It will cost money too. DMVs charge for everything. I've had it done on an older car in FL and the process was the same here in NC for a car collector neighbor of mine. In both instances it was just a wrong number put on the title yet it required the personal visit from an inspector. Too much fraud involved which is why most states consider it a felony to manipulate mileage. You can get it done but expect some time consuming efforts.

Unless you plan to sell the car some time soon I would't bother, sounds like more trouble than its worth.

Do post back if you get the title fixed. I am curious exactly how much pain in the *** it will be. I am in a similar boat... i changed to 4.10s but havnt fixed my speedo yet. But i've only put on about 1k miles so its not off by much... def not worth it for me unless its way ez.
