I will soon have too many miles on my focus to be protected by the warranty but I still have plenty of time on it!

So I'd like to lower the mileage on the odometer. Do you know where I could get the information to do it?

No idea, I'm not even sure you can on the new digital odos.

Not to mention the fact that it's 100% absolutely illegal.

Anyway, if you went in to a dealer with lower mileage than one of the last service appointments they would know immediately, and you'd probably get in really hot water for Fraud.

How do you have plenty of time left, if you have a 2001?

Dude that is a very BAD idea, its very illegal and your ass will pay if you are caught. Just do what we all did.......................

Deal with it!!!!! Go buy your self some good old fashioned warranty voiders, and get ready to pay for your own repairs.
