What Is Good Mileage On A Used Car?

If you’re in the market for a more affordable vehicle near Springfield or Wilmington, it can be tricky to determine what is good mileage on a used car. Many people would never look at a car that’s already got over 100,00 miles, but this may not always be as bad as you think. Even with 100,000+ miles, pre-owned vehicles that have been taken care of and maintained well over a handful of years can still be a decent buy. So, what is good mileage on a used car? Let the experts at Key Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram FIAT help you shop for a pre-owned vehicle with the following helpful tips and tricks.

The Smart Way to Shop for a Used Car

If you are on the market and searching for the right pre-owned vehicle to fit your needs and budget, here are some things to look out for:

  • Usage: A vehicle that has been driven for 50,000 miles in stop-and-go city traffic will likely wear down faster than one that drove the same amount of miles on open highways. Try your best to get the previous owner’s driving history before buying.
  • Location: When a vehicle is driven in a warm, dry climate, it will have taken on less wear than one driven in a wet, cold climate.
  • Condition: You’ll want a certified mechanic to take a deeper look at the vehicle’s condition to determine if there are any mechanical issues or rust that may need to be handled sooner rather than later. These problems should be factored into your budget.
  • Maintenance: Get the maintenance history of the used vehicle so you can see when it has had routine maintenance services like tire rotations and oil changes. If the vehicle’s service history is spotty, this could lead to expensive problems in the future.

Age vs. Mileage

When it comes to used cars, a newer model that has high mileage could be a better option than an older model with less mileage. Keep these factors in mind when searching for pre-owned cars:

  • Low mileage vehicles are often more expensive.
  • A pre-owned vehicle that has a well-documented service history is preferable to one that hasn’t been serviced regularly.
  • If a used car hasn’t been regularly driven, this could lead to mechanical issues or problems with gaskets and rubber seals, so it may have higher repair costs.
