20 to 30 miles maximum unless the car is a trade between two dealers. In that case they usually tell you so and let you know how many additional miles you can expect. When two dealers trade cars, they won't drive them if the distance between them is over 250 miles/4hrs. In that case they'll use a transporter and make the buyer foot the bill as well.
