On my iPod nano (5th gen), I see there is a setting to play audiobooks Faster or Slower, but that setting does not apply to music. So the problem must be something else not related to that setting. There are no "general" playback speed adjustments on iPod.
Listen to a song where this problem occurs, normally, with headphones on the iPod. When you press and hold the Next button, on the iPod's click wheel, it does a "fast forward." Does it sound like that, when you listen to the same song on the car audio system?
What model is the iPod? Does it connect the car audio system through the dock connector?

Thanks for the feedback. I realized that the only way to resolve my probelm on the Classic was to use the cars system speakers only through the auxillary. Plugged into the headphone on top of classic and into aux of car and controlled everything through the IPOD and sound is OK.

Does the cars owners manual state what the iPod requirements are? It sounds like the firmware version on the iPod is not compatible with the stereo.

I have the same problem with my Audible books. It's very frustrating. I saw that someone else used the trick of switching to a song and then back to the book. This works for me sometimes but not others. I have not been able to find a consistent solution. I don't have headphones that will let me use the aux as described above.

I don't know if this is relevent to your particular problem, but for audio books only, there is a special setting on some iPods that intentionally plays audio books faster than normal. It is in Settings on the iPod's screen, then Playback. It can be set to Normal, Faster, or Slower.
So, if you have not checked there yet, make sure it is set to Normal.
