Question Miles on your new car

Just wondering how many miles are typically on the cars rolling off the lots nowadays. I found the car I want, but it already has 400 miles on it, I'm assuming the worst being 400 miles of test drivers hooning it up.

When I went to buy my GTI the dealer didn't have one and offered bringing one from 100 miles away, that already had 250 miles. I decided to wait a month for a really new car.

Mine had 5, all from the factory and pdi.

Legally if a car has more than 500 miles it can't be sold as new anymore. I would personally consider a car with 400 miles a used car, and it probably hasn't had a very kind break-in

Mine had 58 miles. Tried to get the dealer to throw in some extras due to mileage, but he wouldn't budge.

mine had to be driven from out of state and it came in with 250 miles. I was pissed when I took delivery to be honest. I got over it now.

My friend got a 2 door DSG, but he could have chose a MTs still factory wrapped in white plastic with 0 miles, not PDI yet
