Lowest Odometer Reading upon receipt of Vehicle
 
Just curious, what is the minimum amount of miles that some of your baby's were driven at the plant or otherwise before you got them? I know some of you were selected for the "Rigorous Quality Control" and had a bunch of miles. If this has already been covered I apologize, I'm just wondering for fun!

Do any actually arrive with 0 miles? I have no idea how it works.

When I took delivery, it had 10 miles on it. According to my salesmen, he said he just drove it from the holding lot to the dealer inspection area which is less than a mile away. He did claim too this was the first Hemi and Overland they got in, so I wouldn't be surprised if they took it for a spin to get a feel for the new engine/tranny.

9 on mine three weeks ago. Now, just shy of 4,000.

The lowest miles I ever received on any new vehicle was 0.8 miles on a 1998 Honda Accord Coupe EX V6.

Now as for the highest, its my current 2014 GC Summit which had 35 miles on it when I took delivery. 29.5 miles was from the inspectors (and I use that term loosely) at JNAP doing their Quality Assurance Test who are obviously blind and missed a few simple obvious quality control issues with my vehicle.

Back when rail cars were in short supply and Jeep drove WK2s off the assembly line to one storage parking lot staging area to another to the New Boston rail car loading area south of Detroit, they would often show up at the dealer with 60 or 70 miles on them. Mine had 55. I've read typically they'll have about 2 miles if it goes directly from the assembly line to train to car carrier to dealer.... and the dealer doesn't do much inspecting. If the dealer reset the odometer, it may have 0 miles, but I don't think they typically do that.

That's good, because typically that would be illegal. :)
