Default How many miles were on your new Corvette?


How many were on yours when you picked it up?

I special ordered my Z06 and it took 12 weeks to get it. I was very specific that I wanted no one driving it other than off the truck and into the dealer. When I got there to pick it up it had just under 7 miles on it. I find it hard to believe it left the factory with that many miles on it so I'm sure someone took it for a joy ride.

My 18 Z had four. My 16 Z had 6. My 15 Z had 12. My 14 Stingray had 26 but was told it was the car pulled out to do special testing.

You're upset about 7 miles on it? wow. I highly doubt anyone took a joyride in it, they are most likely from the factory and QC.

Is there any evidence of damage?

Did you get a full tank of gas? That was probably the salesperson going to the gas station to fill her up. Mine had 8 miles.

Mine had 3 and Iím pretty comfortable that it stayed parkwd inside while at the dealer - MacMulkin. I recall either reading or being told that there are two separate ďtest driveĒ courses at the factory that all Vettes are driven on. And one was longer than the other. But I donít recall the length of either one.

My 17 Stingray had 5 miles. As I understand it up to 2 miles at factory, dealer PDI up to a couple miles.

Mine had 8 if I remember correctly. It was sitting on the showroom floor across the country. Had it delivered to my driveway. As said I would guess it's from the dealer fueling it up.

Mine had 2 miles on it from MacMulkin as confirmed by Onstar. They had to gas it up so then it had 3 miles when I picked it up.

None that I could tell. I suppose I'm being too picky. It's just such a large investment that has me overly protective.
Already did the first oil change myself at 500 miles. I got the oil and filter from the dealer when I picked up the car.

My NEW C7 was handled with kid gloves. It was also discounted multiples of the meager discounts most here got. It's definitely A KEEPER!! 😊

80 miles on mine, it was on the lot for 5 months and used as a grand marshal parade car. Got a good discount because of that.

3 mi when picked up inside from Matick Chevy in the Detroit 'burbs. showroom new awesome since it was made in Nov 16 and I picked up in Mar 18. Not only parked inside in the worlds largest indoor showroom all the time, It came with the worlds largest plastic "baggy" car cover. Not a scratch or scuff or dust mote on it. A week earlier I helped my bruffa pick up his brand new 109K MSRP Z06, from a NC dealer, and it had a scuff on the drivers door sill. letting mere mortals sit in YOUR ride in a showroom, I think I might faint from such a repulsive thought.. ...naw, it's not MY car! ha ha.

Be very very careful that your Vette doesn't end up owning you, rather than you owning it - at the end of the day they're all just cars.....

I was in San Antonio last week and there were two Bentleys at Home Depot. I split the daily driver duties between my C7 and a 30-year-old Ferrari.....

In the end, they're ALL disposable - at least mine is. I'd never obsess over a silly car. They're a drop in the $ bucket of my life. No big deal, or miles.
