@JTD_Liam any info?
There was no H on my Tipo's odometer at all after collection. I had under 10 miles on the clock when I got mine. I think the dealer didn't complete the PDI properly, as it should be switched off prior to delivery to a customer.

Normally it goes off around the 100 mile mark if it's not been done at the point of PDI. Not sure why it's not happened in this case

Re: Mileage reading new car

Update .... at exactly 124 miles the H disappeared. 200km is the magic figure hence 124 miles. Im surprised main dealer got it wrong. Praise be to google and owners clubs. Mystery solved

Re: Mileage reading new car

Glad it's sorted itself and the mystery appears to be solved, but I too wonder if this may have been a PDI error.

I collected my new Tipo in November with 8 miles on the clock and like @JTD_Liam, mine never had it either.

Re: Mileage reading new car

The car had 6 mile on it when I picked it up. The car was in stock when I ordered it so I had it in two weeks. I assume like said it hadnt been reset for pdi. My last new car 500x had 4 mile on it but with no H.

Re: Mileage reading new car

Glad it's sorted itself - 124 miles/200km makes sence. Here's hoping for many trouble-free miles

Re: Mileage reading new car

I think the H it to allow the dealer the reset the millages bro zero before sale e.g to allow some millages for testing /delivery
