13 Hours! and 28 Miles on a Brand new 2019?

When I got in my truck for the first time picking it up at the dealer for a test drive / shake down run I noticed on the DIC that it had 13 HOURS and 28 miles on the truck. When I asked my salesman he said that was average for all delivered Duramax trucks, Really?

Why do they leave it idle so long, supposedly that's not good on the new Clean Diesel motors? Ironically at 50 miles on my truck (just after I got it home) it kicked into a REGEN cycle. Obviously due to the idle time before delivery.

Now after 6 months and 4500 miles it's driven only on trips no shorter than 30 miles at about 60mph and it's Never had another regen cycle.

Anyone know WHY they let these new trucks idle for so long before delivery??

I have ordered over 30 new trucks and never had over 3 miles but I never looked at hours.
Living in MI. When picking up a new one in winter the dealer has my truck running and doing paper work it’s idling a long time.
Most likely it was test driven and was let idling when looked over.

So if you ordered it your mileage and hours are not normal.

I believe it. I tracked the order (placed 5/11/18) every step of the way and it was built on 6/25/18then took a week to get to the shipping yard in Virginia then it sat there 2 hrs away from my dealer in Raleigh NC for almost 3 Weeks, until I called the service manager and Asked Why, then it showed up the next morning at 8am (REALLY?).

I understand that they randomly pull a truck off the end of the line and put it threw extra tests as part of quality control.

There's a storage lot behind the Tooling plant in Grand Blanc that is used for the HD trucks so they dont all get put in the lot at the assembly plant. The place that does the bedliners is near the plant and the trucks are sometimes driven there. There's a lot of potential places it may have been left running.

Maybe they just babied it, driving it that 28 miles at about 2 mph.

Now give us all what we really came in here for - pics?

Democrats: abolish ICE... free health care for illegals... make it easy for illegals who cross to stay... give illegals the right to vote... adamantly oppose building a secure border... create "sanctuary cities"... grant illegals in the country amnesty... welfare for illegals... tip off illegals about ICE raids.
And we're supposed to believe that Democrats aren't for open borders simply because they say so?

Reminds me of a Seinfeld episode. (George is amazed at having found a relatively inexpensive parking lot. When Kramer finds a condom in the car. George checks out the lot a little more and finds the owner may be making use of the parked cars for a little extracurricular income. )
