    So you know more than the people who do this for a living?

    The whole "odometer was changed" thing is what piqued their interest in your Harley. In case you haven't heard, odometer fraud is a huge issue in the used vehicle world.

    You have the law wrong.

    If the car is over 10 years old, you didn't have to report the mileage. But you did report the mileage and now it's being researched.

    Also, if cars over 10 years old where exempt, than there wouldn't be a way for you to report the mileage or for the DMV workers to suspend the title.

    Find the specific rule that says all or your particular vehicle is exempt, print it and show it to the Ca. DMV

    Don't assume that they are stupid. They are following the law. It may not mean anything to anyone but, if there's a place for it, they are supposed to fill it in.

    If any of them have a degree, it's probably in sociology or gender studies, so, that's how they don't know. Perhaps an official statement from your insurance agent or the CHP can enlighten them. Expect them to still argue saying, "That's what the computer says."
