There is something wrong...it just doesn't make sense. I have had my new JKU for less than two weeks and the odometer is reading close to 600 miles! Does anyone else have this problem?

Does Quadratec sell one that is compatible but operates at a slower pace?

If more than a few of us have this problem, perhaps we can launch a class action law suit....(along with the "leak" suit)

Please tell me I am not the only one.

Did you verify the mileage on the odo when you picked it up? Most states have a mileage document that dealers sign which verifies the mileage at sale. If it doesn't jive or you don't have it check the dealer. Also check your trip mileage to see if it's close to what you figure.

Speedometers are made in China-

Mines got about 13,000 miles and it's not a DD it's for off-road use !!

Must be the stock 215/50x16 tires-

I have the same issue. I verified when I purchased it from the dealer that the 24 miles documented to be on the vehicle matched the odometer. But somehow a short two months later it is showing more than 4000 miles. If anyone starts the class action lawsuit I'm in.
