My swift vdi odo has a peculiar problem. I have noticed that whenever car comes to a halt the speedo shows 15kmph and only after 2-3 seconds it comes to rest. Is it a common problem in swift. My Lancer doesnt have this problem. When I enquired the SA at sai motors he told that was ok. I dont believe him because it was the same one who told me that the service light goes off only after starting the engine.(I think I know more about ddis than him owing to folks here at Team-BHP. FYI, the tyres are stock 165/80R14 JK crap on alloys.

We have a Petrol Padmini S1 that has significant odometer error (the odo showed 12 Kms for every 10 actually traveled) but the speedometer shows about the same reading when driven side by side with other cars.
IMO - PAL must have intentionally added the odo error to boost the perceived FE figures of the S1. So highway FE readings if calculated by the odometer come to 18-19 kmpl while the actual figure is closer to 15 kmpl.
