Back when the Civic was still relatively new, I called the dealer and asked about getting it "fixed". They told me that up to a 10% variance is still within specs. Seemed screwy to me at the time, but I've just adjusted for it over the years, and didn't ask about our Toyota.

If the 10% of allowable variance caused you to speed, I wonder if the nice police officer who pulled you over would be willing to overlook it as a variance issue :0)

I'm thinking that in a school zone or something, having a speedometer that's near the upper range of that 10% could result in a hefty fine.
