What is Good Mileage On A Used Car?

Car odometer

Though most would suggest to stay away from a used car with over 100,000 miles, this might be a better option than a pre-owned model with less mileage that wasn’t properly cared for. In addition to looking at a used car’s mileage, you’ll also want to be aware of its physical and mechanical condition. Learn more about what to look out for when buying used and contact our team if you have any questions.

The Smart Way to Shop for a Used Car

If you’re shopping for a used car, here are some additional aspects to look at in addition to the mileage:

  • Usage – A car driven 75,000 miles in stop and go traffic will wear down sooner than one that has racked up 75,000 miles on the open highway. Make sure that you get the previous owner’s driving history before you buy.
  • Location – If the vehicle has been driven in a cold, wet climate, it’s bound to have been under more stress than is driven in a dry, warm climate.
  • Condition – Have a certified mechanic inspect the vehicle to determine if there are mechanical problems or rust that will need to be addressed, then be sure to add this cost into your budget.
  • Maintenance – Check the maintenance history of the vehicle to ensure that it has been kept up to date on routine services like oil changes. An irregular service history can be a sign of expensive problems in the future.

Choosing a Used Car Based on Mileage

So, what is good mileage on a used car? There’s really no definitive answer. There are many factors to look into. However, it’s best to think about how much mileage you’ll get out of a used car. If a used car has 50,000 miles and seems to be working pretty well, then it’s likely a good buy. When comparing mileage vs. age, be sure to keep note that the typical driver clocks about 12,000 miles per year.

Mileage vs. Age

As mentioned above, a newer car with high mileage may be a better choice than a low-mileage used model. Be sure to take these tops into account when buying used:

  • A car that hasn’t been driven regularly will often have higher repair costs. Mechanical issues, or problems with rubber seals and gaskets, can develop if a car isn’t driven on a regular basis.
  • A vehicle with a well-documented maintenance history is preferable to one that has been neglected.
  • Low mileage vehicles often come with a higher price tag.
