Speedometer reading low all stock

I have a 2016 JKU, no modifications, stock tires, gears, suspension, etc. Bought it new. Running recommended tire pressure (241kpa/35psi).

Recently i noticed that my analogue speedometer is reading 2kmph lower than the digital one right below it. So, if I am traveling 52kmph the speedometer needle is at 50kmph.

I also verified this with Waze app (digital speedometer agrees with Waze 100%, analogue needle shows 2kmph lower).

Anyone had this happen to them?

Cheers!

2 Km/h is 1.2 MPH.. That's really not that much of an error to worry about. It's a tiny percentage.

My '16 is the opposite. With Stock size tires the speedo reads about 2 km/h high.

Haha. I guess it just depends on the angle you are looking at it

Since its under warranty maybe I'll stop by the dealership and see what they say. But glad I'm not alone!

Thanks!
