Factory Delivery Miles

I'm probably just going to piss myself off by asking this question, but is there any reason why my factory delivered Jeep would have 12 miles on it when it was delivered to me? Do they put miles on at the factory? I didn't mention it to my dealer yet.

They have to drive it as part of the pre-delivery setup/inspection etc. My ordered Summit had 11.

Re: Factory Delivery Miles

If it helps, I had 25+ miles on mine at delivery. I knew it would have more then "normal" when mine was "held" for inspection ( Milous' tracking). Yes I was concerned, but have been 98% trouble free.

Your dealer may have taken it to a gas station to fill up too. I guess just give it a good inspection and make sure the odometer paperwork is correct on the day of signing/ delivery.

Good luck

p.s. Now if you turn on the radio and its already cranked to music you don't like...I got over that ( but was very concerned - visions of joy riding by some one else).

Re: Factory Delivery Miles

Thanks everyone. Yeah, my radio was already programmed with presets. I couldn't understand why that was done and it pissed me off a little.

Must vary by dealer and/or loaction then. See below, "Perform road test... 8-10 mile"... "Before 3 After 11".

Re: Factory Delivery Miles

Mine had 6 when I first test drove it.

I did take delivery on a Pathfinder that had a local (to the Nissan factory) strip club already programmed in it. Thought kind of funny.

Re: Factory Delivery Miles

Mine had 35. It was held ( along time) for "100% quality inspection". I was NOT happy, but there was not much I could do. Other than the initial problem with a damaged DEF line, it has been good.

Re: Factory Delivery Miles

I didn't even custom order mine but purchased my 2014 the day my dealer received their first two (was there for service on my 2005 didn't even know they'd have a 2014 in Feb 2013.) It had 1.7 miles prior to my test drive...

My SRT had 6 miles on it when I bought it. Hopefully it wasn't 24 1/4 mile runs haha!
