Yes, there is a day to celebrate your car’s odometer! National odometer day is celebrated to remind people that the more care their vehicle gets, the longer it will stay in good condition. An odometer is one of the most important devices used in our vehicles. It’s the instrument that indicates the distance traveled by a vehicle. The word ‘odometer’ comes from the Greek word ‘hodos’ meaning path or gateway. There are various names for an odometer; for example other countries call it a “mileometer” or “tripmeter.” Variations of the odometer have been used since the 1600s to measure the distance traveled by wagons and other horse-drawn vehicles. The first automobile odometer was developed in 1903. Today, most vehicle odometers are electric or a combination of mechanical and electric, but mechanical odometers are not uncommon. Odometers help us understand the lifespan of our cars and serve as a maintenance reminder. Below are some reminders relating to your vehicle’s odometer:

  • Check your car’s owner’s manual for a specific maintenance schedule. 
  • You can reset your trip odometer after each drive, and keep track of your mileage to understand how efficiently you’re using gas.
  • Paying attention to the distance you travel will help you maintain your car and ensure it is performing well.
  • Remember that severely worn or underinflated tires can cause an error in odometer readings so it’s important to regularly check your tire pressure.

We spend a lot of time in our vehicles. Celebrate your car and its parts  by taking a long drive today! While technology has evolved since the first odometer instrument was invented, they continue to track how far we’ve traveled. How many miles are on the odometer in your car?
