Well it took over a year before I noticed the scale on my speedometer isn't linear (and it was my wife who finally noticed). Apparently this is the case on a lot of VW's. You learn something new every day. :-). Excuse the dust and dog hair. It's been a long year. :-)

Above speed limits there's no need for exact numbers. 😄
But anyway, these speedometers usually show a higher speed than it actually is. Compare with a GPS.


@fredl99 Yeah.. There hasn't been mechanical linkage between speedometers and the actual mechanicals for years so they're free to do it I guess. I've never felt the urge to check it but I see enough warning trackers around here that show your speed that I can tell you it's fairly accurate.
