New Car Purchase Question Sign In

I just purchased a new Impala which I took delivery of Saturday. The dealership did not have the color I wanted so they got the car from another dealership. When I picked-up the car the mileage was on the trip setting and it was showing a little over 200 miles which was about what I was expecting. After we drove the car off the lot I realized that it actually had a total of over 700 miles. Is this something I should be concerned about? If so, what are my options with the dealership?

You really don't have much recourse on that. They should have made you well aware that there were some miles on it but they may not have even known and it wouldn't have changed much. You still have a "statement of origin" so it's still considered a new car.

They may have used it as a test drive car for a little while. And while i don't know much about it, i would say that since you bought it, that you have little choice now. And even if you did get them to take it back, wasn't that the only one in the area? It is just 700 miles, it's not like there is anything wrong with the car, but your choice. If you have never made a mistake, you probably haven't done much.

Amost no car will show zero but 700 suggest either it came from a distant dealer to get exactly what you wanted and the fastest way was to send a driver to get it??

Bill of sale should indicate the actual miles and if you are happy with it I probably wouldn't be too concerned but would get a note stating that miles for later if warranty issues come up,
