What Is Considered High Mileage for a Used Car?

So, what is considered high mileage for a used car? Because of the potential increase in vehicle repair costs over time, most people shop for cars that have less than 100,000 miles. Remember, most average drivers put approximately 10,000-12,000 miles per year on their vehicle/ These are some other factors to consider when looking for a gently used car:

  • How many miles vs. age of the car: A one-year-old vehicle with 40,000 miles on it might be in worse condition than a 5-year-old vehicle with 50,000 miles on it because it has been driven extensively in a shorter period.
  • Year it was manufactured: In recent years car manufacturing has improved immensely, which means many newer vehicle models will likely last well over 100,000 miles, and even up to 200,000 miles or more.
  • Regularly Scheduled Maintenance: A vehicle with 20,000 miles on it that did not receive routine maintenance recommended by the automaker, might have more issues than a vehicle with 40,000 miles on it that did get routine service. When purchasing a used car around Sullivan, be sure to ask for proof of maintenance.

Other things to Consider When Shopping For a Used Car

  • Model Generation: Sometimes when a stellar model with an excellent reputation is redesigned for the new generation, it doesn’t go well. Inversely, a vehicle that may not have had the best reputation in the past might have been greatly improved with a redesign. Check the reviews by auto experts like Kelley Blue Book or Edmunds.com.
  • Vehicle History Report: Ask for a vehicle history report from the previous owner, or pay for one yourself. It will show repair reports, any collisions, police records, and DMV records. These records may reveal details about what wear and tear the car has endured over the years.
  • Location: A Vehicle History Report will also show where the car has “been licensed. Dryer climates, like southern California or Arizona, are gentler on vehicles than places with lots of rain, humidity, or harsh winter weather.
  • Foreign Luxury Car Brands: The cost of shipping high-end replacement OEM car parts overseas means that luxury vehicles may be expensive to repair. Still, these brands often offer superior warranties, especially if you purchase a certified pre-owned vehicle.
