How many miles did your Hellcat have when you bought it?

Started the lease at 2mi, was at 42,655 when I returned it a few days early.
What a great ownership experience.

732 miles
June 2017 i was looking for a white Challenger HC and couldn't find one. Saw the exact car I wanted at Car Gurus with this mileage and called them. It took 2 weeks before they brought the car for my inspection. I asked why and they wouldn't tell me. Inspected the car and it was as new. Price was 56,300. I bought it next day. After transaction, I asked why it took so long and again no answer except ( it wasn't us that dragged our feet )
Brought it home and my wife found registration. She found the guy on FB. Turns out he was a veternarian and was accepted into medical school. He had been telling his friends he didn't think he could keep the car and pay for school. His final message was that he let the car go and had never got on it or had a chance to break it in. This car was new. sticker price was 72K with 15K ADM green sticker.:eek: Don't know what he paid, but I feel like I scored pretty well.

How does one go from veterinarian to doctor, calculated out he spent 4 years undergrad + 4 years vet school + residency (vet???) + 4 years medical school (to be spent) + 3-5 residency = 15-18 years of school/ school associated work. That's insane to me, considering the cost to go through vet and md school is $250k each, plus another minimum $50k undergrad.

I was thinking maybe he'd get sued less as a vet, but maybe the thought process was "Hell, this is easy! Why not do it on people?"

Of course, now I know where to go when I have a HVGW from another bank robbery

I don't have any animals. I think he took a big loss on the car.

Vet to md is crazy tho man, dude has no common sense, probably why he took a huge loss on his car.

The odometer said mine had traveled 100,302 feet when I picked her up. Think some sales guy took it for a joyride at some point.

3 miles on the demon? I thought those were supposed to be white gloves and hover boarded everywhere? Did the dealership owner drive it?

The Hellcat was PDI by the selling Dealership while the Demon was delivered by Reliable Transport and put in the back service area, where it sat until I purchased it. Interestingly the Demon was ordered for the owner. Demons were not allowed to be driven by the selling Dealership according to the paperwork in the interior of my Demon.

660 on the Charger. It was a dealer trade and it was hard to sell because of the mileage.

Bought my 2015 Challenger Hellcat used in 2019 with 3500 miles - the car was as close to perfect as I would ever expect with that many miles. The only "issue" I could find was it had new summer tires on the rear with used winter tires on the front, so I am pretty sure the rear tires were used to make more that a couple smoke shows... not that I would ever do that... (lol)

Okay, now I'm curious. Why is low mileage a hard sell?

Been looking at trading in my Challenger GT AWD, but it seems like the dealers are really low balling me. I kind of suspect that they don't like the low mileage (788) and think there's something wrong with it.

It was brand new.
