Truth in Mileage Act

All Vermont titles conform with the Federal Truth in Mileage Act, 49 U.S. Code § 32705.

A separate Odometer Disclosure Statement is unnecessary for conforming titles (assuming the title is appropriately assigned and completed). 

Since January 1, 2021, odometer disclosures have been required for every transfer of ownership for the first 20 years, beginning with Model Year 2011 vehicles. The model Year 2010 and older vehicles will continue to be subject to the previous 10-year disclosure requirements and thus are exempt from extended Federal odometer disclosure requirements.

The model Year 2011 or newer vehicles will only be exempt from the odometer rules after 20 years. To comply with Federal law, anyone transferring ownership of a Model Year 2011 or newer vehicle must provide an odometer disclosure to the new owner.  

The model Year 2010 and older vehicles will continue to be exempt from federal odometer disclosure requirements.

Sellers of Model Year 2011 vehicles must continue to disclose odometer readings until 2031. 

Federal Rule is available here.
