Is this a mistake?

Could they really already have a pre-owned X3 with 13 miles and a price tag that low?

Darn... How is it pre-owned already? Demo car? Or someone just hated it that much?

mistake?

I'd say it's a mistake overall. None are even able to be delivered new yet, to my knowledge. I believe the first deliveries are 2/6.

Heavily discounted because it's an automatic

It's not pre-owned car. We still have several months to go until we can sell our X3s.

That specific car mentioned is their first Mystic Blue demo. All of these dealership websites work the same, by "feeding" their info from the dealership's main operating system (ADP or Reynolds), and entering all the specific data in to the fields on the site. It looks like someone incorrectly labeled that car as used instead of new, so it pulled to the used car inventory page. Also, they input the price incorrectly.

Nothing more than a simple input error...

Well, it makes little difference to me, I'm not in the market for one.

The whole point of that type vehicle (to me) would be its use as a tow vehicle. The X5 is well suited, but I don't think the X3 will satisfy my requirement.

My wife however, did think it would be easier to enter the X3 while wearing a dress (based on floorboard height). But she also commented on how small the interior was while we looked at one on display at the Detroit Auto Show yesterday.
