I am considering purchasing a 2014 cruise 1LT base model for around 16k (gm family discount) with around 3k miles on it. It has been used mainly as a rental car for those who have their car undergoing service. It would be given the full warranty from 3k miles. Does anyone have experience on these demo/service cars? would the offer worth it? anything in particular i should be aware of when dealing with these demo cars?

My dealer uses these new car as courtesy cars for topcustomers. It is nothing wrong with them and they got many customers back inthis way. I go to change my oil, I get a new car (always under 4k mile) and Ibring it back after work. I put 20-30 miles on it but is very convenient. Notonly for the oil change, also for any other repairs. I’d say go ahead if theprice is good for you.

This is true but at the same time how much of this can we say for a single "owner" off lease car? I know plenty of people who will get into a cold car and redline it before the needle moves in the winter time.

Flip side I also knew people who would pay that in house rental insurance with intentions of **** near totaling out the car and walking away w/o a bill for it.

I purchased mine that was a loaner car, It had 3k miles on it and even though it was a loaner it was clean and well kept for having 3k miles on it. I say do it, You still have the warrenty and they put GMPP for free on it for me with is a extra warrenty. Mine is just a LS but there is nothing wrong with the car because it was a loaner, ya people might have driven it like **** for 3k miles but everyone that gets in a loaner is not some crazy nut.

I would check with some dealers. I got mine (2014 Cruze 1LT) sticker around 19,500 but also got a $2500 rebate so down to about 17k ish. So for about the same price or slightly more, you get a new car that nobody has driven and 0-10 miles on it but that is just a matter of choice. You may get lower payments on it because it is considered "used". But they already ate 50% of your 3yr bumper to bumper warranty unless you extend that out to 5yr 100k
