Section 18


18.4 Proper Repairs

  1. It is lawful to repair an odometer provided the mileage indicated remains the same.

Repossessed Vehicle Odometer Disclosure

  1. The odometer reading must be reported by the legal owner of record (the repossessing party) on a Certificate of Repossession (REG 119). The REG 119 form can be obtained at http://www.dmv.ca.gov/forms/reg/reg119.htm.
  2. The legal owner also releases his/her interest in the vehicle with the Certificate of Repossession.
  3. The word "Repossession" is entered on line one of the complying title (where the registered owner would normally sign off), and the Certificate of Repossession is used to transfer title without the registered owner's endorsement.
