In the State of New Mexico when you sell or transfer the ownership of a motor vehicle you have to complete the Odometer Disclosure Statement in the assignment section on the front of the New Mexico Certificate of Title for any vehicle model year 2011 or newer, self-propelled and below 16,000 pounds. In addition you may also disclose the mileage of a vehicle by using MVD Form 10187 – Odometer Mileage Statement. See more details below.
The next vehicle types are exempt from odometer disclosure in the State of New Mexico: vehicles model year 2010 or older, vehicles over 16,000 lbs., non-motorized vehicles (trailer-type), low-speed vehicles (LSV), and mopeds or scooters.
Additionally you can use for mileage disclosure MVD Form 10009 – New Mexico Motor Vehicle Bill of Sale or MVD Form 10001 – Application for Title and Registration. In any case you are required to disclose the mileage in any motor vehicle transaction, except for off-highway vehicles.
Please understand that an inaccurate statement, or failure to complete an odometer statement, may result in fines and/or imprisonment. Also be careful when you write on the back of the New Mexico Title of a vehicle because any erasures, alterations or cross-outs may void the title.
