What is Good Mileage On a Used Car?

Pre-Owned Vehicles
 
So you’re at the dealership in Lexington or Winchester looking for a used car. You’re checking for outside condition, interior quality, and service history, but you’re probably looking at that number on the odometer first and foremost. What is good mileage on a used car? With modern engineering and technology, used cars with more than 100,000 miles on them can still be a good investment. See what makes a used car a good investment at Jack Burford Chevrolet,inc.!


What to Look for in a Used Car

Mileage isn’t the only thing you need to look for when finding a Winchester used car. Here are some other factors in play:

  • Use history: A car with 100,000 miles that’s gone through heavy city traffic is more worn down than a car whose 100,000 miles have been racked up on the open road. Make sure you’ve got the previous owner’s driving history before you choose to buy.
  • Location: If your used car has been driven in a dry and warm climate, you’ll have a better quality used car than one driven in a cold, wet climate.
  • Condition: Get your mechanic to inspect the vehicle to make sure you are free of issues, like mechanical problems or rust. Feel free to schedule service with us if you want a thorough used car inspection.
  • Maintenance: Get the maintenance history of your potential new-to-you car to ensure that it’s had all its routine checks and maintenance done at the proper time. If your used car hasn’t been well maintained, that could foreshadow an expensive problem down the line.

Choosing a Used Car Based on Mileage

There’s no ideal answer regarding what’s considered good mileage on a used car. Many factors come into play when picking out your London used car. If your used car has 50,000 miles on it and it’s in good condition, it’ll likely last you a long while. However, a car with 100,000 miles and a proper maintenance history can give you a good three to five years. The average driver is going to put about 12,000 miles a year on their car so keep this in mind when factoring in what’s good mileage on a used car.
