Default Question for those of you that had the "100% inspection"

My Longhorn was delivered to the dealer with 52 miles on it. When I questioned the sales manager at the dealer, his response was that the factory quality control 100% inspection includes test driving. So, my question is...........how many miles did yours have on it when you picked it up?
Mine went to the vendor to get the bedliner sprayed but from what I have heard that vendor is withing a 1 mile of the plant. 50 additional miles seems like a lot of test driving. IMHO.
Not a complaint, just curious if this is pretty standard or maybe they took my truck out to lunch a few times. LOL
Other than the missing rear center armrest cup holder being missing (which dealer replaced), mine has been perfect. So much for the 100% inspection. On mine they should have called it "99% inspection" since they missed that during the inspection. Fit and finish is very good. Only found one speck under paint when I waxed it which is not at all visually noticeable. So far very impressed with my truck.

Mine had 8 miles on it when I bought it. They can stick the inspection stuff up their ass............If you search this forum you will see I recently posted a thread with a pic of 2 rust spots on the sheetmetal under my rear bumper at the corners. I have 700 miles on it. Dealer said they would fix it under warranty, waiting for them to call to give the go ahead to bring it into the bodyshop.

52 sounds excessive for a 'new' car! But it is under warranty and I am sure everything is fine.

Not sure what/if anything you can do about it, but I feel your pain. I would be pissed.

I'm pretty sure i've read, 20-50 depending on what testing was done and if they fixed the problems, shuffling the truck around in the yard adds up if it needs to go back and forth to differant places.

I still agree 52 is excessive, but it's a pretty safe bet they weren't pounding on it, like some people do on test drives, buying of the lot it's possible guys (or gals) have been lightin the tires up or doing other foolish things, so you just don't know.

i bought a "new" car during year end clear-out it had 195kms on it, it lasted 11 years so no complaints.

My truck had 76 miles but they picked it up in McHenry from another dealer which was about 40 miles away. The truck I test drove right before that had 80 miles on it. I think it could be that the truck was there for a while and there were quite a few test drives. Both of the trucks did have the Pentastar so it could have had a lot of people wanting to check it out.

Mine had 17 kms however with that said in Canada there is an allowable mileage increase for testing at the plant......52 does seem high though.....

Oh helllll no. Thats toooo much. Mine was a august build iirc, and it only had 16 miles when i bought it in November. I'd raised hell on buying a New truck that I ordered and had to wait for!!!!
