The USA Today headline read: "Honda says odometers on 6M cars click off mileage at too-quick pace."
6M is six million.
The warranties on many cars expire when odometers hit a specific mileage.
USA Today reported the following."The Society of Automotive Engineers' voluntary standard is plus or minus 4%, or no more than 4 miles high or low in every 100 miles." "Honda says its odometers were accurate to within 3.75% on the high side and 1% on the low side, within the SAE standard." "I used to drive a Mazda, and it was 342 miles to Grandma's. Now I have a Honda, and it's 352 miles."
Here is a final item from the USA Today posting: "Toyotas routinely register slightly fewer miles than actually driven. Detroit brands are generally perfect."
