What Is Good Mileage On A Used Car?

Every customer seems to have a different idea about how many miles should be on the used car they buy. That begs the question, how many miles are too many miles on a used car? We want you to make an informed decision, regardless of where you buy your used car in Dover. After all, who wants to buy a used car, just to break down somewhere in Salem the next day? So let’s talk about what is good mileage on a used car.

Good Mileage for a Used Car

What constitutes good mileage on a used car differs from model to model. While it’s generally considered ideal to find a used car with lower mileage, advances in technology mean that many vehicles still have plenty of life left at 100,000 miles or more! When looking at a used vehicle, you’ll want to weigh mileage against age, service history, and other factors to ensure you’re making a smart purchase.

Mileage Isn’t Everything

Once you’ve done your research on the model you’re considering and know what is considered good mileage, there are a few more factors to take into account. You’ll also want to look at:

  • Was the car driven mostly on the highway or in stop-and-go Saco traffic (which is much worse on a car)
  • Does the car have a maintenance record? Maintenance can make all the difference to the life of a vehicle.
  • Has the car been in accidents?
  • What kind of climate was the car driven in? Roads that are treated for ice can be harsh on a car.
