    321 miles on the odometer on an '08. That means the car has been sitting in the garage plugged in for around a year! That can't be good for the battery or the car.

    Yes and no. . The LA store has contacted some Roadster owners (some famous) to check in after a year of ownership. The cars were very low in mileage so the employees are driving them around to put the miles on. It's not good to let them sit, but it can be delt with.

    I actually had that job at a Fiat subcontractor. New cars hard to be broken in before we delivered them to reviewers. Fiats, Lancias and the occasional Ferrari.
