Mine had 13 and I was there when it came off the truck and went to PDI. That car didnt go anywhere. I am surprised it had 13miles. Where the F did it go between the factory and the dealer? Probably on rail but still..
If it was a dealer stock on lot it could have been previously test driven more than once, and a salesman or two could have taken it out. When I test drove the ST near me it had a sticker for the tested mileage driven, the salesman told me as soon as the car came in he hopped in and took it for a drive, and I put about 17 miles on it. I didn't pay attention to the mileage it had on it but I figured the salesman would have taken it more than around the block so it would have had around 40 miles on it by the time I got done.Does anybody have paperwork (not window stickers) that indicates the testing mileage? In my case, when I finally got the chance to sit in mine, last Wednesday, it had 41 miles. Before that moment, while doing the finance paperwork, I received a printout to sign that indicated my car was delivered with only 5 miles. Naturally, when I put two and two together, I grumbled to myself and wondered if the sales person (or others) did more than just fill up the tank.
That's more like it. I can't believe how many miles are on some of these dealer ordered cars. Way more than normal. Maybe because it's a new model and they want to test them a bit more I guess. Or like some said just to have fun with the car. It's very possible. But anything over 10 is high in my opinion for a car that's been ordered. I've seen new cars with less than 2 miles on the odometer.3 miles
Mine was a custom order. I forgot to mention that earlier. I thought the site was down so I couldn't edit but apparently I cant get here on my Verizon FIOS. Hours later I discover it works fine on my sprint phone .If it was a dealer stock on lot it could have been previously test driven more than once, and a salesman or two could have taken it out.
Hate to say it, but probably most of everyone's miles are "fun" miles. Except maybe for the Ford documented ones. And even then they were possibly redlined. New car. Fun car. Whoever gets a chance to drive it from the dealership is the lucky one to have that fun. If I were to order, I'd tell my salesperson to take that car off the truck and park it. Period. Then call me asap. We can fill that tank when I get there. Honestly, this is ridiculous people. If you don't mind then no biggie. But if I ordered a car I'd be pissed at any excessive miles. Maybe it's just me though.And he added "it gets fun in 2nd gear", so do the math...
Mine had 99 and i think of the same thing. Then i mash the gas pedal and forget all about it.Mine had 50 on it. Keeps bugging me thinking about all the abusive miles dealership employees/test drivers probly put on it. Kinda wish I had factory ordered now. Guess I just shouldn't think about it!
