It should say on your speedometer if it is in Miles or Kilometers.

it should do both. the bigger numbers is miles and the little numbers is the kilometers.the odometer in the usa does only miles.

1,545

depends on what area you're in...in asia its mostly kilometers...i think......

you have a point there but in north america its both.

1,545

oh, okay...but isnt it hard to read the speedometer if you have both?

No, Its not difficult. I have other vehicles that have both (British vehicles), Only takes one drive to understand. Here in NZ, most imports are from Japan and therefore in kilometres. So depending on which area your in will determine (Generally) what your car has. BUT, it should say on the speedo it'self. It should also be pretty logical. Moving with motorway traffic, does it read near 100, or 60?

no in most cars the big black #s is miles and just next to it inside is the kilo usaully blue in color.
