I disagree with this. If I'm spending $30K-$40K+ for a new car, I want it to be NEW.The average driver will put 600 miles on a vehicle in 2-3 weeks. When you buy it, it will be used as even if you bought it as new so what difference does it make? When you trade it in or sell it, that 600 miles will make absolutely no difference whatsoever in value.
Tell them to throw in a free oil change and call it a day.
That means I do not want it driven around and treated like a rental car for the first month.
Trade-in value has no bearing on the situation for me.
If I'm paying for a new vehicle, I don't want it to be a "nearly new" used vehicle, which is what this is.
Since it was a "demo", a dozen or more different people have taken it on test drives, along with dealership employees treating them as rental cars.
Unless you are getting a substantial discount off the price of a true new model, then why even consider one with 600 miles? I've bought 4 new vehicles in my life, and all of them had 5 miles or less.
