My car has 42000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. The manufacturer limits the top speed of the vehicle as a safety. The only way to be able to increase this is to reprogram the computer. This would have to be done with a custom program. There are some online companies that offer this as you cannot get it done at a shop or maybe even at the dealer.
