Thats about what i expected with 6 year old batteries. I should be getting speed readings in the 15-16 mph range even with 80% charge. Is it safe to say I have a speed sensor problem?

. . . if you checked out your cart using the troubleshooting guide in the below link, then you will know if your speed sensor is not working . . . it is an easy fix/replacement (assuming you are not also changing out the magnet, which can add time/difficulty to project) . . . speed code 3 is 14.8 mph . . .

Yeah, I've done the test and it looks cut and dry like its the speed sensor, I just have a tendency to second guess myself. How difficult is it to change out the magnet?

. . . does your speed sensor have one or two screws mounting it to back of motor?

. . . I have not changed one out, but based on other members, pull passenger wheel and speed sensor is accessible . . . remove speed sensor and look inside at back end of motor/armature shaft . . . magnet should be visible on back end of armature shaft . . . it is held in place with a 1/4-20 x .5" screw . . .

It is pretty easy to change out (I did mine twice), just like Stevegrmich mentioned.
You should also consider ordering a speed magnet (4 pole), it is a pretty cheap upgrade on the IQ system you have (under $20 delivered).
