in my experience here..is that car thermometers always read approx 2c higher than the actual recorded temp both in winter and summer

Yes they seem to overdo the temperature by a couple of degrees.

Very likely that if his car was reading -25C, the actual temperature would be very very close to the all time low record.

My car doesn't like Celsius ..no matter how many times i set the reading to Celsius it always reverts back to Fahrenheit next time i start it.

I questioned the low temperature at the dealership. Apparently cars use thermistor technology to measure temperature and are accurate. Since then, I've been comparing cold temperatures using the cars display and checking against a standard garden thermometer.

The lowest temperature I've observed recently, would've have been -14C on 31-01-2019.

The reading was the same on the garden thermometer and the car temperature display.

This morning, the temperature was -7C via the garden thermometer which was exactly the same as the car display.

Omega thermistors are accurate to 0.1C +/- or 0.2C +/- depending on type.
