Take a camera, check for any damage/scratches, take it on a thorough test drive before signing any papers, and ask for the warranty to be extended by however many miles is already on the car. i.e. 12 miles on the odometer = 50,012 miles.

Don't you think the statement in bold print above is a bit much? I would think that the dealership would (1) think less of you and (2) refuse. You were joking, right?

Agreed - seems very petty and wouldn't be worth ruining a nice delivery experience over something like that.

lol, I really don't see how that would ruin a delivery experience. I'm sure the salesman would be happy to oblige and do that in like 30 seconds. It's not like you're going to be like EXTEND MY WARRANTY MFs! OR I'LL WALK OUT!

Well I thought that the warranty doesnt even start at 0 miles, i thought it starts at however many miles u recieve the car at, so if you sign for a car with 5 miles on it you will be covered 50,000 miles FROM 5, please correct me if i'm wrong

Why would he say no to a little thing like that? He'd look stupid for jeopardizing the sale.

shimshimhada I usually agree with you on your posts, this just happens to be one where you are off base. I think (and others on this thread seem to agree) that you would look pretty silly asking for an extra 12 miles. Do you seriously think that if your car has a problem at 50,001 miles, that your dealer will not cover it under warranty? If you really think that having an extra 12 miles added to the warranty is going to make a big difference, more power to ya.

Sounds like this might be a good topic for a poll - "Would you ask for an extra 12 miles when you take delivery?"

You never know. Apparently, it doesn't really matter.
