Is it normal for the speedometer needle in a 1990 Ford Escort to wiggle before it hits 28-30 MPH as opposed to moving smoothly?

It is not normal and if it is a manual speedo the cable needs lubing and if it is electric, there is a problem that needs to be checked out. GoodluckJoe

Either the Speedometer itself is bad or the speedometer cable is. either one isn't too difficult if you have pulled a dashboard out before.

I didn't know my car was going 72 mph because the speedometer broke. The needle on the speedometer bounced whenever I hit a pothole. The speedometer's needle was stuck at 15mph. Before I could glance at the speedometer, the policeman's radar gun clocked me going over the speed limit.
