Ask the dealer...........I am sure when the car is delivered there, there has to be some paperwork. If the dealer is unwilling to answer you or show you......go elsewhere.........if the dealer won't do this for you, what do you think they will do when you have a real question or problem? It varies. The car could have been delivered earlier that day (unlikely, since it takes a few days to "prep" the car) or it could have been sitting on the lot for almost a year. You can find out when the car was manufactured by looking for a sticker on the driver's side door jamb. A car that was manufactured in April 2006 shouldn't still be sitting on the dealer's lot in January 2007, unless it's a car in low demand. The most important thing to look at is the mileage. Typically, a new car (one that's never been titled) should have less than 30 or 40 miles. More than that means the car has been test driven extensively, and possibly driven hard. I wouldn't worry as much about how long the car's been sitting on the lot as I would about the mileage.
