Mines didn't fill it up. If I would have known that, I would have asked for it before I signed the paper work.

My bet is that it was a dealer car. Normally the GM will get the new cars for free to drive around for a few months. It is then sold at a discounted price.

My mother use to be the regional manager for GMAC on the west coast before the "Out source" and use to get a new GM every 6 months. She could get it for $100 a month for the first year them finance it as a used car later if she wanted it. This is how I got my first car in late 1979. A 1979 Z28 Camero.

Some dealers GM are good with the cars and you can get them for a song.... some are not.

Re: Average Miles Upon Delivery

Paperwork is written up at 16, but that was after gas up and the test drive.

Re: Average Miles Upon Delivery

42 miles before we test drove... was not happy, but it was the only one that matched the specs/options that we wanted.

maybe it was that "extra quality control"

Re: Average Miles Upon Delivery

I think many manufacturers start with negative miles on the odometer so there are more miles on it than you think.
I work in Oshawa, Ontario which has the largest GM plant in Canada and I routinely see the Camaros individually driven from the GM plant to an outdoor parking facility in neighbouring city of Whitby. I would say the round trip alone is about 10 km.

13 on mine yesterday. Came off truck day before. Not sure how many miles were on it the night before. I think the sales guy took it to lunch. He said he only went to fill up with gas.

Re: Average Miles Upon Delivery

Mine had 11 when I picked her up.

Typically, the OEM will drive it through their test track ("quality control"), and that can put about 7-9 miles on it.

Re: Average Miles Upon Delivery

Mine was a dealer transfer and it was supposed to have ~300 miles on it. I went to pick it up and it had 600 miles and it was dirty on the inside. We got them to detail it, fill it with gas and got the road hazard warranty, interior warranty and some paint protection thing on it for nothing extra. I figure the warranty BS was about $1000 so I was fine with it.

The paint protection thing was pretty cool also. I was supposed to be some extra clear coat protection thing they put on and was supposed to help with UV light and add some minimal chip protection. I don't know how much it will help but I have washed it a few times with dish soap and the water still beads up on it (they told me I wouldn't have to wax anymore, we'll see about that though) but so far it has been good. I got some bird crap on it and it wiped right off with a paper towel after sitting on there for a day or two.

Sorry for the long winded answer

Re: Average Miles Upon Delivery

The paperwork said 15 miles....but the odometer said 35! I've always wondered how the 20 extra miles came about....
