No they come off the line serviced. they just have to verify the levels, remove the protective coverings and do a final drive. The final drive may be optional for a Z owner.

I drove my car from the truck, the driver backed the car off and let me drive it into the service dept, I stood there while they removed the plastic and checked all the fluids, they were all to their proper levels.

As earlier mentioned, there is a clear shrink wrap on all the painted surfaces which takes a while to take off including the adhesive. Plus time to wash, wax and check fluid levels. I happened by chance to be at my dealership when the car carrier arrived at the dealership with my car on it.

Isn't he aware the car is started and driven off the carrier?If it was "dry"......it wouldn't start..duh!

My new Z had 2.0 miles on it at delivery and it was delivered with a full tank of gas. The dealer has their own pumps so they filled it right there. Something else I wonder about, is if the delersip actually goes thru the pre-delivery checklist item by item? You know, check the tail, head, brake and turn signal lights, etc. ? I doubt it.

My salesman THOUGHT he was going to do the final drive. No way!!!!! I was there. He got a ride to the gas station where he filled it up.

Once took delivery of a new 70's Firebird Formula that was supposedly prepped.

Was driving from Chicago to California and only made it to Nevada. No differential fluid from the factory.

Just a memory.

Just another point in favour of why we are better informed all of the time by being on these forums. NCM lets clients start their cars - they are supposed to be started as part of the assembly process. Duh, how do they get them on and off the trucks and the rail cars. Another Putz for a salesperson.

I took delivery of a new 1990 Chevy 4x4 pickup in Nov of 1989. 90 days later, Chevy "decided" to buy it back since they "forgot" to put fluid in the front axle..... Of course, it took an attorney and the threat of having the case disassembled in front of a video camera by an expert in the area before "they" made their decision.
