How many miles did your car come with?

My 2011 5.0 which i received over a month ago now arrived with 105k already on the car.I am saying this because i see some people posting that theirs came with only like 6-10k.Am i the only one who got their car with over 100k on it.The dealer told me cause it was a new motor and they had to test it out.


2011 Grabber Blue 5.0=Shelby GT500 spoiler,GT500 Rear Diffuser,CDC Chin Spoiler,Billet gas cap,quarter window louvers,side scoops,19' polished aluminum wheels.

Wow, 100k miles!!! They gave you a used car. I joke, I joke. It's on the high side but from what I've read some cars were driven around extra during QC checks if they heard a noise or suspected issues. Also driving around in the holding lots and train yards can add up. So it's not out of the ordinary, my car only had 7'miles though.

Sorry to hear that, was there any certificate showing that your car needed to be tested? It seems a bit excessive. I would be so pissed. I kept an eye on my miles every time I took my previous car in to the shop, no joy riding! Call Ford directly, I would think with the VIN number they should be able to know what was needed on your car. A new engine, ok, maybe all those miles were done in the lab. Hope you can track down some information. Mine just came with 11.
Good luck

I think he means kilometers...it would take about a year of driving 500 miles a day to get 100,000 miles on it (I drive a truck and do this and on my semi I have 102,000 miles and have had it almost a year.

My '07 GT had 8 mi on it when I got it, but my '11 had 149 mi.

(I don't mind though because I've now gotten 3 GTs from this dealer, and they always take care of everything I need.)

50 miles off the lot, and I put about 10 of those on during my test drive. It was an April production car and I just bought it last Saturday, so I'm surprised it didn't have more miles.

Mine had 21 miles on it and I put 7 of those on during the test drive. I also bought it the day it arrived at the lot, so only a few sales person joy rides were possible.
