Default When is new considered used?

When I bought my 2005 GXP it was on the dealers lot with 3 other GXPs. The one I wanted happened to be a demo used by the dealers wife (I was told) Anyway it had 5,100 miles on it so they threw in a 100,000 mile warranty for the mileage.

I could have bought one of the others off the lot with 9 miles but didnt like the colors. Would any of you done this?

100K warranty is a lot better than the 36K warranty you woulda got with the 9 mile car.

Ya I'd have done the same thing.

When does new become used? When it gets a title, before you actually drive it off the lot.

Yeah, the minute the car is titled in your name it becomes used.

I would have done the same thing as you since I'd rather have the piece of mind for the last 64,000 miles knowing stuff will be coveed than the first 5100 miles. The car'* already broke in this way. My parents bought their Impala the same way, although without the warrenty, but a huge discount on it.
