The Value Of User Surveys

My client contact, several of my contacts employees, and the founder of the company have indicated a strong belief that, based on user surveys they have conducted, their site is "pretty darn good".

Part of the process I am working to implement will include user testing during the design phase. Does anyone have good counter points to why user surveys should be taken with a grain of salt and not considered the "end-all-be-all" judgment of a website.

Reading Ahead - Design Competition @ Core77

We're psyched to be working with Core77 on a design competition that
is about taking our Reading Ahead project (user research findings
about the reading experience and associated opportunities -
http://www.portigal.com/series/reading-ahead ) into developing
concepts for possible future products, services, and more. I think
it's really important for our fields to have artifacts, examples,
experiences, etc.
