I recently went about purchasing a 2006 Hyundai Sonata. After leaving a $200 deposit, the salesman called, saying he had one that he could get, and to give him a day or two. He called me with a VIN #, so I went to the dealership to see the car. Eveything looked fine, but it had 220 miles on the odometer. I pointed this out to him, and he said they had to get it from a dealership in New Jersey, and that a 55 year old man drove it, implying that it was not abused. The Jersey dealership is only 70 miles from here; where did those extra 150 miles get put on? (Rhetorical question, no need to answer). I refused the car; no one said there would be over 200 miles on it. I am really careful with my vehicles during the break-in period, and I'll bet that those 200+ miles were not driven in a mild manner. Did I overreact? The sales manager called me, giving all sorts of reasons why the car would be ok, and offering to lower the cost by a dollar a mile. I refused- I was not looking at the mileage as a negotiating point- I just feel that a 'new' car should not have more than 10-20 miles on it, unless I have been otherwise forewarned. Suggestions appreciated. If it matters, I am buying the car outright, not leasing or financing.
