#16 of 17 2007 V70 Odometer/Trip Computer Conflict
Aug 29, 2007 (5:37 pm)
I saw two new 2007 Volvo V70 last night. Strangely, both car have single digit total odometer mileage and double digil trip mileage. In another word, the trip mileage is higher than total mileage. This made me think of crazy things......
The dealer said it probably was due to conversion between Europe and US. Called Volvo north America and was told the following: "The trip computer may show more mileage than the odometer if the trip computer is not reset after testing from the factory during production. This is not an indication of a fault with the vehicle. The trip computer and odometer should be reset before the vehicle is delivered.
The trip computer functions independently of the vehicle's main computer and can be reset to zero at any time."
Is this true or convincing? Did anybody else have similar experience? Thanks!

Of course I understand that trip computer can be reset to zero any time. However, I still don't understand how trip computer can register more miles than the odemeter.
Another question I have is, if somebody turns the odometer backward, will the trip computer follow......
