Ehh I mean I guess you can ask whatever you want to ask, but it doesn't matter where it sits nothing is going to deteriorate a brand new car in such a short time, especially sunny FL so that's absolutely not a factor. I mean, there are climates MUCH more harsh than FL lol. My 2014 Summit was purchased new by me literally an entire year after its mfr date and only had 19 miles on it!! It sat through an entire Chicago winter. I didn't question why it sat, I didn't say that the car must be in rough shape because it sat....no. It was as new as can be and I got a great deal and I was extremely happy and content with doing nothing more than test driving and looking the car over.
Heck, I bought a 6 year old Acura TL-S 6mt that had 1,300 miles on it. It literally sat inside of a Honda head quarters office for years! Car was as new as good be and never gave me an issue whatsoever (I miss that car). Newer cars are much better than they used to be and things don't deteriorate like they used to.

I picked up my 2015 two weeks ago, but the build date was 12/2015, so it wan't baking in the Florida sun (leather) through last summer. I think all the left over 2015's have recent build dates.

Yeah they probably do. My 2015 HA also has a 12/15 build date and I purchased it in early Jan. Didn't take long for that one to go from factory to my garage.

Well we were still $1500 apart so walked, will just see if a phone call comes in the next day or two. Suggested they throw in a Maxcare Lifetime but they did not want to talk about that.


Doing for a lady friend, my '12 is still the best tow car I've ever had.
