IMHO anything over 50km is not a new car anymore and it can be classified as a demo, etc.

my 07 Civic had 13km on it
my 15 Forte had 26km on it.

Those are new cars. a 1200km is definitely not classified as a new vehicle anymore.

This is clearly not a new vehicle, the dealership should not charge a new car price. Ask for a discount for sure. Of the car costs 40k I'd ask for at least 1k discount for the miles.

For 1200km I would ask at least 5k discount considering it's 40k brand new

Good luck with a Crysler. You will come back with a new thread about it.

I already have 2 Dodge and have not had any issues with either of them - just regular maintenance on both.

I did not want this to turn into a debate on reliability or whether it's a new / demo / used vehicle, but there have been some good suggestions here that I will take with me to the dealership.

I personally like to break in my cars myself, so I would walk away from the deal unless their is a substantial discount and if the car is still in like mint condition.

Absolutely not, but the point is, hes paying for a brand new car. That's why the value of the car drops at least 10-15% the second you drive it off the lot. It's only fair that the dealership not charge him new car pricing when obviously at 1200km is no where near as still being classified new.
