    Last week at ABQ I got into my Mazda 3 and saw it had 14 miles on the odometer. I kept hitting the reset button assuming it was trip distance, not total distance.

    Had a Altima in EWR a few weeks back with 13 miles. Nice to get a new car, once in a great great while :)

    Last year, I received a Chevy HHR (I normally don't care for them but this one was loaded w/options) with 50 miles on it. Had heated seats (wife likes heated seats [​IMG]), leather, full power, etc. HHR's are slow but I booked sub compact and got this vehicle.

    If the HHR was old and/or stripped, I would ask for something else.

    Had a car once with 8 miles on the odometer--apparently I was the very first renter. I don't remember exactly what it was, but Camry sticks out in my mind.

    My Merceded E class at NCE last time had 7 km. The delivery plastic was still not completely removed. It was fully equipped too, F&R cameras, the works.[​IMG]

    I just picked up a Honda Civic to drive for a week while my GTI is in the shop. The odometer showed 8mi when I picked it up.

    About eight years ago, I was the first renter of a hot sporty white Ford Mustang at DTW as a #1 Gold customer. I think it had 9 miles when I took it out. The car was almost embarrassing as my colleagues teased me about it and I felt obligated to endlessly explain that I had reserved the cheapest class available and was given this nice upgrade without even asking.

    IME the best Hertz cars I've had have been consistently at DTW. Perhaps the proximity of the auto industry leads to higher standards, although the same doesn't hold true near the Mercedes plant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, or the BMW plant near Greenville/Spartanburg, South Carolina.
