VSS - vehicle speed sensor. cheap to buy on ebay, and can be replaced by yourself. have done this on a couple 5th gens, though they were both 4 cyl.

Correct me if I am wrong, but if it was the VSS wouldn't the check engine light be on? Or could it be stored in the ECUs memory without having the check engine light on?

Not trying to be a jerk. This is an actual legitimate question.

If that doesn't work, GPS units have gotten decent when it comes to MPH. Mine is a simple Garmin 1690 and it is surprisingly accurate.

Not a solution but might get you by.
