Dashboard electrics

Heres a thing... I just bought a 56 plate Focus (diesel).
I'm still within the period I can take it back and shout "Gim'ie back my money", but to be fair its a cracking car (my first Focus) and I quite like it.

Anyway heres the thing... the gauges all sit short of where they should be,
so even when warm the gauge sits short of half way, the fuel guage sits short of where it should be based on whats in the tank, the rev counter sits a zero even when ticking over and the speedo sits well below the first speed indicator and doesnt move to the 10mph point until my sat nav says in doing in excess of 20mph.

Anyone come across that before, is it a glitch that I can fix or pay to have fixed or should I get my money back.
