What Is Good Mileage On A Used Car?

Couple buying new car


In addition to looking at a used car’s physical and mechanical condition, mileage is another aspect you’ll want to check out. Most suggest drivers to stay clear from a used car that has over 100,000 miles, however, that isn’t necessarily a hard and fast rule. As long as the vehicle has been well maintained, it could still be a good buy. Condition, location, and usage are a few other factors to consider when shopping for a pre-owned vehicle. Find out more with us at Riverside Buick GMC!

The Smart Way to Shop for a Used Car

While mileage is definitely an important factor, there are other factors to keep in mind. These include:

  • 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 – Vehicles that have been driven in a locale that has a dry, warm climate, undergo less stress than vehicles from areas that have a cold, wet climate.
  • Condition – Get a certified mechanic to inspect the vehicle to determine if there are any issues, such as mechanical problems or rust, that will need to be dealt with. Figure 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.

Mileage vs. Age

While many opt for the used vehicles with less mileage, a newer car with high mileage might be a better choice. And if you’re looking for a like-new model with low-mileage, a certified pre-owned vehicle is worth a look. Either way, make sure to take these factors into account when buying:

  • 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.
