I can't be of much help, but I'm pretty sure my speedo is ~5 miles over too. No
pulsing though. I'm not sure if it's a design problem or just aging components.
Has anyone else noticeed this on their 5kt/tq? I'm curious to hear how you
noticed this? I compared my speed while tailing my brother in a newer car.
