I would question the speed stated on a car speedometer. I recently bought a GPS system for my IPAQ and the system always stated a speed of approxiamately 10% less than the speedometer was showing.

Are car manufacturers made to make their speedometers on the high side ?

Not sure if they are made to but they do make them read over. They are more accurate in Australia, maybe that is forced on them by some law.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
