I have been thinking the car wash guys are reseting my trip meter and now know its not true! I always use trip #1 to see how far I run on a tank of gas, and trip meter #2 for oil changes... I thought #2 was always resetting itself... turns out it only goes to 999.9 then resets to zero.... dosent help much for tracking oil changes, or long road trips :rolleyes:

I just found out about this limitation. How silly. We're going much farther than 999 miles on our upcoming vacation. I guess I'll have to tally every time it clocks out.

What's even worse is that BOTH trip meters time out at 999.9...I can't believe Honda did something this stupid!

I did not know this. That is very unlike Honda to do something that dumb when they could have so easily put an extra figure there. One extra figure would have allowed the meter to show up to 9999 miles, more than sufficient for most people.

Although I do not see myself taking any trips over a thousand miles, I can understand where this would be an inconvenience for people on the road a lot. As far as maintenance, such as oil changes, I rely on the oil life monitor. My "A" meter is for trips and my "B" meter is for gas mileage.

This isn't anything new. My 99 Accord has a digital odometer with two trip meters (identical to the RL except a whole lot less snazzy looking) and that car had a three digit limit as well. I never thought it was a big deal to keep track of every time another thousand miles rolls around - pun oh so woefully intended. :)

Yeah, I found out about the three-digit limit too. I usually reset the 'B' trimp meter to watch the oil changes, but couldn't figure out why it kept resetting.
