On testing, we checked a total of 12,300 unique vehicle registrations and found that 797 had mileage issues, this figure means that 6.47% of vehicles we checked had mileage issues.
To work out this estimated figure we must know how many vehicles are in the UK, according to racfoundation.org there were 38.2 million (38,200,000) vehicles in the UK as of December 2018. 6.47% of 38.2 million is 2.47 million (2,471,539).
