What Is Good Mileage On A Used Car?

2017 Chrysler 200

Most Nickerson used car shoppers consider mileage to be one of the most (if not the most) important factors to consider when it comes time to make a decision. In previous years, it was often said that if a vehicle had more than 100,000 miles on the odometer, it wasn’t a smart purchase. However, depending on the repair and maintenance history of the used car in question, this doesn’t always hold true. Find out what you should consider when shopping for a used car with Allen Samuels Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, below.

Find Out Good Mileage for a Used Car

Below you’ll find details on the top four factors to consider while shopping for a used vehicle:

  • Use – Find out how the vehicle was used on a daily basis. 75,000 miles spent driving in Buhler, stopping and going at intersections, will wear a vehicle out much more quickly than 75,000 smooth-sailing highway miles.
  • Location – What type of climate does the vehicle come from? If it traveled from the Arizona desert all the way to Kansas, for example, it will likely be in better shape than if it came from Florida, due to the warm, dry climate of Arizona.
  • Condition – Always have a trusted mechanic perform a thorough inspection before you make any final decisions. They will be able to point out any future repair problems, such as rust or engine issues.
  • Maintenance – Ensure the vehicle being considered has a strong history of routine maintenance, including oil changes and tire rotations. If the history is unavailable or seems unreliable, you should look elsewhere.

Mileage vs. Age

Many Newton drivers mistakenly assume that a used vehicle with low mileage will always be a better choice than one with high mileage, but this isn’t necessarily a hard truth.

  • Mileage should not be overshadowed by other factors, such as whether the car was driven regularly or sat in a garage, or worse, outside, for most of its prior ownership.
  • A car that comes with a proven maintenance history is, of course, the ideal option over one that wasn’t taken care of.
  • Sometimes, you might find that with low mileage comes a higher premium.

At the end of the day, here’s the main thing to remember: Just because a newer model has higher mileage, it doesn’t mean an older model with low mileage is the better choice. It’s in your best interest to consider other factors. If you’re looking for the benefits like up-to-date tech features in a newer model, but you also a lot about having low mileage, consider a certified pre-owned option.
