Don't they have to shift when the light comes on if one is equipped? If that's the case they're driving around with the things wound up a great bit of the time when we would not.
If it works like BMW's, then even though the speedo is off, the odometer will be dead on. Can anyone confirm this?Miguel said:But if the speedometer is off by 10% like a lot of people state then what is the real MPG figure?
It's more complicated than that. In Europe there is a law that says the speedometer of a car can NEVER read a speed lower than the actual speed. However, it is fine if the speedo reads higher than actual.Stan said:Miguel it's not an error or technical limitation. It's how cars are made so that their customers are happy. Like in that Marching Morons story I brought up the other day.
