Mine is dead on with my Blue Point DMM thermocouple when the car's been sitting in the shade. It's in the sun that the car heats up past ambient. It's probably still right.

And in Yuma.... Go inside! Drive again in the fall. Sheesh. That's just too hot!

114 degees in Phoenix today.

I don't think they are accurate - my son and I both have STI's and have different outside temps sitting next to each other.

Have you checked to see if they have melted?

How accurate do they need to be? Roll down your window and stick your head out. It's HOT. Africa hot! ( 'Good Morning Vietnam' stuff so please don't get offended... or do... whatever.)

Mine was accurate in the high 60's and low 70's last time I checked.

...and what does weather.com have to say about my day tomorrow? Starting in the upper 60s (the drive to work will be spirited no doubt) and a high at 86... with wind.... ahhhh.

Mine is usually a few degrees higher. Car color does affect it though. I've seen black cars that read higher.
