question about speedometer...

i dunno if its just my car but this morning i was watching my speedometer from a dead stop and realize that the needle does not move until i hit about 2000-2300 rpm i never really look at my speedometer from a stop so i dunno if this is normal or is there something wrong with it

mine does the same thing. just take out your gauge console (see any gauges/LED install in the Interior Installs section) and pull the needle out a tiny bit. Do this by prying with 2 spoons from opposite sides of the needle (put cloth underneath so you don't scuff the gauges). Mine does the same thing. Try not to POP off the needle or you will have to follow annoying process of starting car and putting needle back on at 0 mph. Just shimmy it out a tiny bit.

no mine does not get stuck it just doesnt move until i hit 2000rpm meaning if i cruise in first gear below 2000rpm the needle does not go up(i would guess iam running below 10mph) and was wondering if that normal, i dunno how else to expalin it

did you do anything aftermarket to ur gauges, because i have completely stock gauges and i have an 03 also and mine does not do that, if you didn't touch anything in there take it to the dealer maybe something is wrong i dunno just to be safe

the speedometer is marked by 5's except for the first which is 10, so its not gonna move as much when ur going that slow tahn when you pass the 10mph mark
