IIRC, some years ago Honda was sued over this issue. Not only did the speedometer indicate a higher number but the odometer as well...On a trip taking me across Nevada there was a 100 mile stretch between mile markers and my odometer was less than a mile too high.

Son of a....! It never ocurred to me to check that. Not that it matters much now, but I'm curious, so I'll have to check it out.

Of course, I'll be taking one for the team to do it, since the best way (as you mention) is to use the mile markers on the interstate. And in its current condition, riding in my car at speeds over 60 is akin to sitting in the back of a C-130.

I may have to devise a surface street method to check.
