1999 SL2
Default How accurate is your odometer?

I have taken my '99 SL2 through a 5 mile interstate odometer check many times and it records 5 miles every time. My car has the spec 185-65-15 tires.

Recent trip, my GB app recorded the exact mileage as my odometer recorded, 184 miles. Impressive.

Default Re: How accurate is your odometer?

Mine always seems to be spot on with google maps. I donít always want to have my phone mounted to the windshield so I just go by the miles it says until the next exit and keep track with the trip odometer.

1996 SW2
Default Re: How accurate is your odometer?

My '96 SW2 main odometer is "spot on" with road signage and with my Garmin GPS trip meter.

The trip odometer ? To say "not so much" would be an understatement lol

Iíve found it changes over 1 percent just on tire wear. Even different brand of same size tire. Even tire pressure.

Default Re: How accurate is your odometer?

I run perpetually with a Garmin GPS on the dash. I never take it down off the dash, ever. I even wired the GPS into power permanently at the fuse box so it comes on when I turn the key.

My 94 SL2 trip odometer is always within a few tenth's of a mile in agreement with the distance traveled shown on the GPS at fuel fillup's (about 330 miles).

I did have to replace the two tiny gears in my odometer last year with parts ordered from a guy in Europe.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
