D I think.

A - incorrect because they did not pay damages for the cars

B - incorrect because sentence meaning is changed. Sentence conveys that they cars were driven by the odometers.

C - unnecessarily wordy

E - incorrect because they did not pay damages for having cars but for test driving them with disconnected odometers.
