Car companies calibrate their speedometers to read faster than actual speed to keep from being sued by owner if they get a speeding ticket. This is very true in Europe where the company can be sued for this. I owned a 2006 Suzuki wagon and I was doing 70 mph by speedometer but trucker stated he was doing 65 mph alongside me. Had Suzuki replace speedometer that read correct under warranty.
