How many miles on your new car when you picked it up?

Some of the posts on this board have me very curious. My (relatively little) experience with new cars has been that there have only been 2 - 4 miles on the car when I bought it new. I see that some have had over 30 miles on their brand-new, special order vehicles, and I can't for the life of me figure out why. I could understand that on a vehicle that has been on the lot and test driven for a few weeks or months, but not a new, special order!

If some of you would like to share, please let us know how many miles were on your new car (dealer stock or special order) when you picked it up from the dealer.

Thanks!

My 2000 Escort had 12, my 2014 Altima had 7. Both were dealer stock, both still had plastic on the seats.

I've had any where from five to hundred miles on them. Some dealers let people take them home to test drive, etc. If I had to guess, I'd say the average would be 30-50 miles on smaller dealers where they may only have a few of what your looking at.

I had 8 on mine; I bought it before it was delivered to the dealer, so none of those would be test miles.

A few miles on the test track

When the 2015's first came out, some vehicles had from 10 to more than 20 miles on them. It turns out that Ford does quality control runs on some units to check them out.
If you order a stock vehicle that may already exist in a dealer's lot...the vehicle may be driven from one dealership to yours. My Chevy Pickup was brand new but was driven about 60 miles to my dealer because it matched all of my requirements.

11 miles when I started my test drive. 30 when I signed the papers. The 19 miles were put on by me.
