New Overland - Mileage Check?

So I'm going in tomorrow to pick up my new overland that just came in from the factory. I ordered March 28th!!! The wait has been excruciating lol.

So I already have a checklist of what I should look for before taking delivery of the car and handing in my downpayment. But what is the upper range of acceptable kilometers that will be on the car? I know they will have to take it for a spin as part of the PDI right?

Also, I'm getting financing through the dealer. Can you pay off the vehicle early? Is that typical? I can always ask, but if it's not typical, than I have to approach it another way.

thanks!

Re: New Overland - Mileage Check?

I got mine with 18 miles. I test drove another that had 10 miles. I did not order though.

I just picked up a new GC Summit today and it had 8 miles on it. It had only been on the lot 3 weeks. Seems nobody had test drivin it yet.

As for paying off early it is typical. Be sure you understand the payoff details. I recall many years ago one of the automakers finance branch a stiff penalty for early payoff. I don't think that's done anymore but be sure to ask.

Re: New Overland - Mileage Check?

Mine had 10 miles on it before my test drive. I liked it so much that it had 16 miles on it when I was done. I bought it.

Re: New Overland - Mileage Check?

My Overland technically had 62 miles on it when I signed for it, but in reality it had 31 miles before I got my hands on it. I insisted before I signed the contract that I needed an extensive test drive to make sure it didn't have a glaring problems. Im sure they would have been pissed if I didn't buy it afterwards lol

Re: New Overland - Mileage Check?

Had 2 miles on her when we went to inspect it since it was a custom build. Found 2 problems (steering wheel input switch replaced, air suspension control module replaced), so we insisted to keep it 5 days before we signed for it to make certain the bugs were worked out. Signed for it with 450 miles on it

Re: New Overland - Mileage Check?

Your finance contract should clearly state "No prepayment penalty". It is typical, but see it in writing before you sign. Don't just take the salesman's " Sure, don't worry about it."

Re: New Overland - Mileage Check?

Mine had around 168 miles on it when I got it, but it was a replacement for the original one I bought which had significant electrical problems and they had to drive it in from northern Indiana as it was the only one in the area equipped the way I wanted.
