High Mileage for a Used Car

What is considered high mileage for a used car? Usually the higher the mileage, the more the repair costs might be due to the possible severity of the repairs. Most people in the Amery area shopping for a used car are shopping for something under 100,000 miles. It’s important to remember that most drivers are putting about 10,000-12,000 miles on their vehicles every year. With that in mind, here are some things to consider when looking for a used car:

  • Miles & Age of the Car: Think about it like this: a one-year-old vehicle with 50,000 miles on it might be in significantly worse shape than a 5-year-old vehicle with 70,000 miles on it, since the first vehicle has been driven extensively in a shorter period of time.
  • Manufacture Date: The quality of car manufacturing has improved significantly over the last ten years. This means more used vehicles are lasting well over 100,000 miles and even beyond 200,000 miles.
  • Regular Service Maintenance: When you purchase a used vehicle, be sure to ask for any proof of maintenance. A vehicle with 10,000 miles on it could, with little regular maintenance, be in worse shape than a vehicle with 30,000 miles on it with regular maintenance.

Other Things to Consider

  • Model Reviews: Models that have a great reputation can be redesigned over the years. Sometimes this redesign goes very well or very bad. Check out reviews to see what people say about certain models over the years to get a good idea of what you might expect on your used vehicle.
  • Vehicle History: Accessing a vehicle history report from the previous owner will show you anything alarming, like repairs, accidents, police records, DMV records, and anything else that may tell you about possible damage sustained by the car.
  • Vehicle Location: Knowing where the vehicle has previously been can tell you about any possible wear and tear. If the vehicle lived in a dryer climate for a long time, then this could be something to watch out for. This can be accessed in the vehicle history report.
