What Is Good Mileage On A Used Car?

Young Family Signing A Contract To Buy A Car.

If you’re searching for a quality used car, you’re certainly going to want to take mileage into consideration. In the past, it was said that if a vehicle had over 100,000 miles on it, it wasn’t worth buying. Today, however, if a vehicle has a good repair and maintenance history, 100,000 miles isn’t necessarily bad. Learn more about the factors that will affect your choice of used car with Nyle Maxwell CDJR of Taylor near Cameron.

Learn More About Good Mileage for a Used Car

Thinking about purchasing a used Jeep Cherokee? Here is everything you should take into consideration, along with the mileage:

  • Use: What was the primary use of the vehicle? 75,000 miles in traffic will cause more wear than 75,000 miles of highway driving. You can learn this information by asking for the prior owner’s driving history.
  • Location: Where is the vehicle from? Dry, warm climates cause far less stress to a vehicle than cold, wet climates.
  • Condition: A certified mechanic can check the vehicle for possible repair issues, such as rust or engine problems, and you should account for this in your budget.
  • Maintenance: A vehicle that has been properly maintained will be in much better shape than a vehicle that didn’t get regular oil changes, etc.

Mileage vs. Age

Many used car shoppers are under the impression that low-mileage is favorable over high-mileage, but that’s not necessarily true. Here are some other factors you should take into account:

  • Was the car driven regularly? If not, it may require costlier repairs. A car that hasn’t been driven often can suffer drivetrain issues.
  • If you’re down to two choices, the one with the best-documented maintenance history should probably be your top choice.
  • When a car has lower mileage, it may come with a premium.

At the end of the day, when you’re shopping for a used car, you should remember that a newer model year with higher mileage isn’t automatically a bad choice due to the high mileage. Be sure to take the other factors we discussed into account.
