My 2016 speedometer is reading 4 to 8 miles per hour faster than actual at all speeds.

Has anyone noticed this on there's, can the speedo be recalibrated through a dealer?

It shouldnt be all speeds, it should be a ratio or curve.  Faster you go the more off it is.  All factory speedos read fast and have as long as I have measured them.  They are WAY off on motorcycles!  Some older speedos were only off 1-2mph though.  

 

When I am going an indicated 70mph on the speedo my GPS is reading around 66-67 with the NV.

 

I think it is an industry standard honestly.  Keeps you from getting more tickets or you think vehicle is faster than it is...

What ASD Dad said is right on. We had sport bikes for years, and they were notorious for being 10-12mph off on the top end. Just normal....

To me it's an industry standard because they only have to cover about 47,000 actual miles driven when ones 50,000 mile warranty expires.

Thanks for the input.

Mine seems to be on the high side...there's a speedo shop in town that will read actuals at varying speeds and recalibrate.

I'll post results if I visit them.
