Icon5 Speedo Reading Around 2mph Fast. 5th gen.

My speedometer is reading a little over 2mph faster than my actual speed. No idea why. Is this common? I have stock wheels and tires on my 5th gen base.

completely normal. ALL vehicles read a little faster than actual speed when still using oem size tires. They kind of have to, because if the speedo every reads any amount under actual speed, it could mean bigtime lawsuits. so they provide room for error
