Silly question - toad odometer

If flat towing a new car with a digital odometer, does it recognize the mileage towed?

Depends on the vehicle. I know our 2018 Hyundai Elantra sport does not roll miles while towing.

I do track the towed miles for tire rotation, brake checks, etc though.

Neither my 2006 Pontiac G6 nor my 2017 GMC Terrain record ANY towed mileages. I’m betting MOST others do not because there’s some vehicles where you remove fuses or turn off a switch to turn OFF certain aspects of a car being towed. It will be in your owner’s manual of the vehicle you use to see how to prepare it for towing behind your motorhome.

Our 2010 wrangler doesn’t record mileage, however I do keep track for tire rotation and axle oil changes.
