Yes. Same with the 1990s Civics. Different trim levels had different gearing and tire sizes but the speedo sensors all showed 60 mph at about 1025 RPMs of the sensor. Also, I think my speedo dial was painted slightly off center so that everythi g is reported 2 mph faster than it might have been. Precision instruments!

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
