What Is Considered High Mileage for a Used Car?

There is no question that there is an exponential increase in vehicle repair costs as a car ages. As a result, most drivers prefer a vehicle that has less than 100,000 miles on the odometer. Keep in mind that the average driver tacks on 10,000 to 12,000 miles per year, and consider the following:

  • Mileage vs. Age: A vehicle with 40,000 miles on the odometer after a year of ownership may be in worse condition than a vehicle that has registered 60,000 miles over five years. Such extensive use may result in greater wear and tear on the vehicle.
  • Year of Manufacture: Today’s vehicles are manufactured to last. Some used models from more recent model years will likely last well beyond 100,000 miles.
  • Maintenance History: High-mileage used vehicles with strong maintenance histories may be better options than low-mileage used cars for sale that have been poorly maintained.

What Else to Consider When Buying Used

Here are a few additional items to consider when shopping for high- or low-mileage used cars for sale in Turnersville.

  • Model Generations: Models typically go through complete redesigns every few years or so, at which point a new generation of the model begins. Check review websites like Kelley Blue Book or Edmunds.com to determine whether redesigns improve or hinder a vehicle.
  • Vehicle History Report: A vehicle history report lists collisions, repairs, police records, and more associated with the car, all of which can help you to make an informed decision.
  • DrivingLocation: Mileage aside, where a car is driven significantly impacts its condition. Drier climates are gentler on vehicles than locations with high humidity or harsh winters.
