Speedometer Fast by 4mph

I was wondering if anyone else has checked this but I noticed that my speedometer is fast by about 4-5mph vs using GPS on my phone. I had a rental car and it was spot on. Maybe that's why I haven't gotten any speeding tickets, lol but it's also prematurely adding excess miles. Would the dealer correct this under warranty?

Thanks!

the odometer calculates correct mileage while the speedometer is more optimistic - the information is programmed in form of quantity of "clicks" of the wheel speed sensors as calculated by the ABS module.

i have exact number of clicks for my 4.8iS somewhere, but for the sake of argument, the odo may have 1000 clicks programmed for a mile and the speedo has 920... those numbers can be programmed but i do not know the implications of such programming
