    I don't like the idea of doing that to fix it either. Since the speedometer is controlled by the cars computer, like all the other gauges, then it should be easy enough for Nissan to correct it by just reprogramming the cars computer. Maybe do a recall to fix it. Mine is off ~4kmh too.

    But the question is, is it really off for the distance, or only for the speed? Is the Odometer OK? does this only affect the speedometer? I don't really mind if it only affect the speedometer...les risk of having a speed ticket. But if it affect the total distance then it won't work because especially for the people who have a lease with limited amount of available km.

    We have a lot of radar speed signs in the area, they dont indicate your speed above while sitting above the actual sign. I've noticed that my speed will be like 50km/h but the digital radar reads 48. So Im getting extra mileage on my car...

    When I'm going 120 km, my gauge reads around 112.
