How to treat out-of-spec acceleration measurements

I am using a ADXL325 accelerometer to measure vibration of a moving vehicle, and have been getting acceleration values above the nominal ±6g range.  They are sporadic and are likely not critical to the overall measurement, but I am wondering what I should assume about the validity of these values and if I need to get a higher-rated sensor altogether.
