According to the dealer, there was a code stored in the PCM pertaining to the 3 mph descrepency in my speedo. They are currently waiting for info from FIAT.

This is NOT a Fiat thing, it is a Chrsyler thing. :)

Our 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee clock gains about 5 - 8 minutes per month.

Just had my cluster replaced for the slow clock. We'll see if that fixes it.

The replacement clocks are now as fast as the earlier ones were slow. All the 2013 clocks will be fast like this too.

Well my clock is fast by 5 minutes every 5 days on top of the speedometers digital and analog being different by 3 miles per hour at 60 miles per hour speed. I may seem picky but I guess I have been spoiled by Japanese cars where the instruments including the clock are pretty much dead on. I will add this to the list of service items for my dealer on its first service along with the condensation in both of my taillights . I am somewhat surprised that they have not called in the first few days or heard from Fiat yet either. Other car companies seem to have more concern about initial after delivery product impressions.

I just had my cluster replaced for the second time. I'll keep my fingers crossed to see if it gets any better.

I've been keeping an eye on mine. I have lost 1 minute since the middle of September with my new cluster. I'm happy with that.
