Honda odyssey speedometer

A friend of mine mentioned that he found his Honda Odyssey’s speedometer was about 8 miles an hour slow. Is there a way to fix this?

Many speedometers are off one way or the other. They’re usually optimistic, reading faster than the vehicle is actually going. Changing tires can affect their accuracy.

If there is a speedometer shop in your area they might be able to calibrate it. I’d want to make REALLY sure it was that far off before spending any money to fix it.
