    Dealer checked my car and placed an order for a new cluster that I'm awaiting.

    Almost every vehicle is always showing 5 KM/H faster than it is going unless it is a certified calibration speedo. (found on enforcement vehicles) It is my belief that automakers do this to prevent excessive speeding by tricking our brains into believing that we are going faster than we are. It's kind of a sneaky way of them "protecting" us. I can go on at length about the number of cars I've observed this on using GPS technology and OBD2 diagnostics technology. It's not broken just designed that way.

    I've checked my 2017's speedometer using GPS and it seems 100% accurate... not sure about the odometer yet.

    Sounds like maybe they've corrected this issue.
