I hope this is the right place to ask a question concerning speedometers, if not Dennis I know you will direct it to the appropreiate spot. I looked at a 2001 Super Duty at a used truck store today. They told me the truck was from Canada. I could not find any previous owner info in the truck so I took their word on it. It seems they buy quite a few used trucks from a dealer there (no sure what providence) and bring them down here into Wisconsin. My question pertains to the speedometer. Aren't your speedometers registering in KM? Now how would I know when it shows 37,### on the odometer if that is miles or KM or has it been tampered with? Truck seems nice but it is barely 2 years old. Any insight in bringing trucks across the border would be appreciated. Thanks for your help.
As far as I know when Trucks are sold to the US they have to have the speedometers changed over to miles from km's. Unfortunetly you never really know if it was or wasn't tampered with. Unfortunetly there are always risks when buying a used truck, this is why they are cheaper then new.
Thank you canadianfordman. This was the answer I was looking for. Even thou this truck looked good for 2 years old, I suspect that at 37,+++ miles seemed low. Certain things like oily residue on the underside, wear on petals,etc lead me to believe it to be more than what showed. Price was also a couple of thousand less than the other trucks on the lot. Once again thanks so much. Not that Canadians are harder on trucks but I don't need to buy one that is miss represented.
