so, last Saturday the Parrot family bought a new car! New to us at least; it's a 2012 Hyundai Elantra, a huge step up from our previous Holden Vectra, herein referred to as the Demon car. As it was a trade-in deal, I paid a deposit for the Elantra that day and took the Demon car in on the next Friday to pay the balance and exchange the cars, three days ago now.
On the Saturday, when we bought the Elantra, the odometer read 19915 kms, which I was very pleased with. Demon car, by contrast, had 192500 kms on it. These totals were written on the contracts. We used Demon car during the 6 days between, adding perhaps another 100kms.
When I collected the Elantra, I was driving home, happy as a clam, when I looked at the odometer. It was sitting at 20700 kms!!
I would really really like to know how the heck the car I bought acquired another 1000kms during the 6 days it was still at the dealer, under contract no less. If they were still using it as a demo model, then I find that quite unethical! I will be ringing the dealer tomorrow to ask. I need a polite way to ask, because right now all I want to do is ask "So, did you all say 'we've sold it! Yippee! Let's go on a tour!"
