    Question How to read the odometer? (Digital)

    I've figured out that the last 6 digits are the kms, but what is the '1' in front of it mean? When it rolled past 199,999?

    If that's so I've got a LOT of kms!

    yeah the 1 in front of the numbers should be larger then the rest by a little bit if its the exact same size you might be lucky and it hasnt rolled over yet. on the other hand it stays at 1 so it may have been rolled a couple times

    It's a touch bigger. Does it signify 199,999? or 100,000?

    well it could be 213,999 which isnt really much if you had someone who took care of their car before you got it. my cougar parts car had almost 200,000 miles on it when I got it and the parts that werent damaged in the wrecked looked almost new

    Hit the E/M (English/Metric) button to switch to miles, then multiply that by 1.61 to get the real KM.

    313,999 km = 195,030 miles
    213,999 km = 132,918
    113,999 km = 70,806

    Mine says 189,132 km
    E/M button: 179,585 miles
    179,585 * 1.61 = 289,131 actual km
    Soon it'll be over 300,000km, at which time it will
    say 100,000 again.

    GREAT DEAL ON A SUPER-LOW-MILEAGE T-BIRD!
    ONLY 100,000 km !!
    BUY NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That would explain why mine says 135,500.09 or so.

    my '87 cougar xr-7 w/digital odometer got up to 199,999.9 miles, then when I was all excited about seeing 200,000.0 it let me down, and went back to 100,000.0 miles!! so now it says 110,435.1 miles, but it actually has 210,435.1 mile on it. Is this normal for these digital odometers?
