Default Dec 2012 build date

I just bought my 2013 Ram 1500 last week and I really like it a lot. I noticed that the build date was in Dec of 2012 and that seemed like a long time ago considering I just got it. It was late Dec so how long does it take normally from the build date to get to the dealer. It only had 5 miles on the odometer when I first test drove it. Thoughts? Thanks!

Sounds like maybe it sat on the lot for a while.

I'd guess that truck would have been delivered to the dealer some time in January or February.

Having said that though anything could have happened, I have read on here that Ram literally had hundreds if not thousands of trucks sitting at the factory throughout the year that were built but not completed. They went through some major parts availability issues and they had trucks sitting waiting for those parts to show up.

Your dealer should be able to tell you when it rolled off the truck onto their lot.

Thanks for the reply Rusty. I was thinking along a parts shortage also. Was just curious.

No problem, just my opinion or best guess. LOL

I'm sure there is someone out there who knows the whole story, trouble is finding that person.

i have a December 1st 2012 build date on mine... i purchased it late February in Terrel, Texas... mine must have had 30-40 miles on it, from test drives and they took it to an accessories shop for window tinting and side step bars... hard to believe yours would have been sitting that long and never had any miles put on it (which is great for you, i'd think). sometimes vehicles can make it to dealer lots in less than a month of completion, but have also heard of vehicles sitting a long while to, as others have mention from parts shortages to quality control issues, to trucking/transportation company disputes...
