Spoken by someone that appears to be without a clue. Used car ODO issues are actually irrelevant here to new vehicles. It is a misguided shortcut often taken by the shortsighted. Not a big deal, regardless.

Re: Lowest Odometer Reading upon receipt of Vehicle

Sounds like my Overland that is currently enroute to my local dealership from a dealership in Oregon has 45 miles on it. I just hope they put it on a truck to get it up here and don't actually drive it - who knows though, part of me thinks they're driving it . I'll have to ask.

My brand new RSX Type-S in 2006 had 7 miles on it and my brand new VW GTI in 2011 had 51 miles on it.

Do any actually arrive with 0 miles? I have no idea how it works.
They have to drive them to be loaded and unloaded on carriers. Mine had 2 or 3.

Re: Lowest Odometer Reading upon receipt of Vehicle

Mine had 25 miles on it when I picked it up, but I agreed to let the dealer show it off for a few days before I could pick it up. He said there were no test drives as requested, but a trip back and forth to their storage. I don't have full faith in the dealer that no one drove it.

Re: Lowest Odometer Reading upon receipt of Vehicle

My current Jeep (2008 WK) had 34 miles on the odometer and most of that was because it was located at another dealer. I test drove a 2007 CRD and the only 2008s were at other dealers. When the first one showed up, it had over 1,000 miles on it and I told them I wasn't there to buy a new vehicle, not a used one. After a few days, they got another one and I did get a free rear seat entertainment system out of the deal although we only used it once.
