    50 miles seems a bit high for a new car? Was expecting it to be at 30 miles, tops...

    Or is it just a place-holder until delivery?

    Just a place holder. For example mine said 50 but actual was 8.

    Believe they use that figure for all the cars. While most will be under that amount they will want some wiggle room in case they need to drive it just before delivery for any reason. Most all miles put on your car will be for the benefit of the new owner. Getting the car to you in the best possible condition.

    Sometimes a Ranger might even deliver the vehicle to the new owner. In this case, of course, the miles may be greater.

    The point is, if the car is over that amount, there's big trouble. So, they put a number that will never be exceeded. So: 50. Like others, my car had 6 miles. :D

    It's funny how everyone remembers their starting milage. Mine was 11. And I never bothered to remember it in any of my previous cars. :cool:

    LoL
    I know. I was actually bummed when I got home and realized I didn’t look and I didn’t take a picture of the odometer. I think I didn’t know where to look
