What Is Good Mileage for a Used Car?

An automobile odometer

If you’re interested in upgrading with a car that’s new to you, you need to be able to answer the question of what is considered high mileage for a used car! Although today’s pre-owned vehicles are lasting longer than ever, many drivers in Greenwich and New Canaan are still convinced that cars with more than 100,000 miles are bad investments. The truth, however, is more complex!

What Is Considered High Mileage for a Used Car?

So, what is good mileage for a used car? Today, even a model with 125,000 or 150,000 miles can be a good investment, since you’re likely to clear 200,000 miles or more. With that said, mileage is just one of many factors that you should consider:

  • Mileage vs. Age: The average driver puts on around 10,000 miles per year. If you divide a vehicle’s mileage by its age and don’t get a similar result, start asking questions! The vehicle may have excess wear, or it might have started having problems early on.
  • When Was It Manufactured: If you’re looking at older vehicles, know that manufacturing gets better every year. Advances in the last decade, in particular, have led to vehicles that last significantly longer.
  • Check the Maintenance Schedule: Ask questions or look for a vehicle history report to find out how the used car was maintained. A poorly maintained vehicle is likely to be a worse investment, even if it has fewer miles.

It’s easy to be confident in your purchase when you choose to buy certified pre-owned, but this isn’t the only way to drive home with confidence. If you want to be sure that your favorite low-mileage used car for sale isn’t too good to be true, it never hurts to bring it to a local service center before you buy.

Additional things to Consider When Buying a Used Car

We’ve covered the basics. Still, if you’re currently in the process of buying a used car, there are a few more things that you should keep in mind:

  • Pay Attention to Model Generation: There may not always be major differences between the model years of various vehicles, but significant changes often take place between generations! Do your research and find out which models are most reliable.
  • Ask About Where the Car was Driven: City miles wear more heavily on a vehicle than highway miles. What’s more, time spent in hot, wet climates (or especially cold regions) will tend to be more worn down.
  • There’s No Substitute for a Close Inspection: Never buy a used car without spending time inside, trying out the features, and taking a road test! Plenty of information simply doesn’t show up on an odometer, and it’s important to cover all your bases.
