It adds the miles to quick I think. I went to my friends house and back and it added 4 miles and he lives not even 1 mile away. Anyone have a similar problem?

..or, you could've started at x.9 + 1.x one way and in the end you're just wrong about how close your friend's house is..

Okay, ignoring the thread-jacking that occured, to the Original Poster:

Honda is currently in a class-action lawsuit over this odometer issue. You are right: the odometer does add miles too quickly.

2002-2006 (and some 2007) I believe added miles a little faster than they really were (even though they were allegedly still within industry standards), and as a result, Honda, if they lose or settle, is willing to offer a 5% increase on warranties to the afflicted model years of cars.

There are many many links to threads on this on this site. Do a search.

Your not alone, this summer my family and i went to the beach and me and my father set our trip meter to 0 when we left the house. When we got to the beach his trip meter was at 255 miles. Mine in my Si was reading 275 miles and we followed each other the whole way.

If your car is affected by the odometer deal Special Ringpop mentioned you should have received a letter from Honda a long time ago.

From what I remember from my letter you get an additional 5k or 6k mileas added to the warranty.

Yah it's really not even THAT much though...nothing we should seriously notice on a daily basis. It was like accurate to 3.75% on the high side and 1%on the low side which is practically nothing..and still within the 4% standard. Starting with 07' models they focused on the accuracy aiming for 0%.

Oh and PS..it only extended the warranty by 1,800 miles...5% of the original 36,000 warranty.

I swear the odometer on mine is just crazy-fast. I've never put more than 12K on a car per year in my life. I'm already at 14K and I've only had the car since March. I need to do some investigating.

I did a test on a 1.4 miles stretch with my 06 ex coupe and a 98 Lexus and an 02 Acura RL. They all showed exactly 1.4 miles on that stretch. May be 1.4 miles is not enough distance for an accurate test but all three cars hit 1.4 at the same exact mark.
