I bought a new Forte5 SX at Gunther a week ago. I found the forum when googled "kia forte speedometer" because mine registers 5% faster than I'm actually going. A tire swap from the 215/45 17s to 215/50 17 should remedy most of that. (yes, that's 3000 less miles on the bumper to bumper warranty if it's not fixed)

I'm currently at 400 miles and averaging 28 mpg.

Welcome and how do you know your actually going faster the the speedometer is reading???
Speedometer is reading faster than I'm actually going. My 42 mile commute to my office suddenly became 44 miles and I also confirmed the speed reading via GPS. With the cruise set to 70 (speedometer), the GPS reads 66-67.
