Only bought one new vehicle which is the Jeep JK I drive now and I took delivery with 2 miles on the clock, it was a custom order.
just ship it Horizon to go on a rack, Tote so dirty where we park and lash the cars downI'm in AK so there's some driving involved with loading and unloading multiple times.
I also have worked for a commercial vehicle upfitter for the last 13 years and drive brand new off the boat trucks often. Lowest I've seen was 3 miles, the most was 100. The high end had a tag from the factory stating it was used for additional QC test drive. Typically though, like the Transit I picked up yesterday was 30 miles the average seems to be 15-45 miles.
Ford pays shipping, they use Matson.just ship it Horizon to go on a rack, Tote so dirty where we park and lash the cars down
No more than four Mikes, in the two-door; and no more than five Mikes, in the four-door. If you take the rear seat delete, only two Mikes will fit in either Bronco.It has been many years since I have received a car that I ordered. How many mikes are expected to be on our Broncos when we pick them up from a dealership? With these being brand new, obviously I wonder about people at the dealerships taking them out for rides before handing them over to us being the customer, just because they think they can get away with it.
When I think back on it, I think my 2010 Shelby GT500 only had like 3 or 4 miles on it. Crown Ford took the delivery of mine and two other guys as we were deployed when we ordered them. The General Manager was pretty awesome and stored all three cars side by side for us in a holding building away from any customers or salesman from crawling thru or touching them.Anything over 10miles (or 16.093km) would be very odd!
Realistically there should be one guy driving it off the assembly line to the holding yard, then the driver loading & unloading on the truck and ONE mechanic doing PDI that’s it. I don’t even let them “wash” my vehicles!
Also unless they’ve been extremely helpful throughout this shit show of a roll out I wouldn’t let them whore out your Bronco & make a bunch of Social Media posts. I’ve seen guys at other dealerships let other customers come see or sit in sold vehicles before they leave the lot.
That's a strange way of saying "thank you everyone else for subsidizing my shipping charges so I don't have to pay $7k myself for this"un side note, there is a drop code for the north slope of AK. Shipping a trailer load out of Anchorage last year was $7k and Ford picks up the tab all the way through. So those guys whining about the destination charge needs to know they loose their ass on hundreds of trucks a year.
