Almost all manufacturers build in a degree of deliberately optimistic speedometer readings (it's actually a law in some places). But the odometer is fine. Remember, they're electronic, not mechanical, and it's easy enough to feed a good signal to the odo, and then a signal with a correction factor to the speedo.
