What Is Good Mileage On A Used Car?

Many drivers believe that a used car with well under 100,000 miles is the best option, however, this isn’t always the case. If a vehicle with, say, 4,500 miles hasn’t had a maintenance check the entire time it’s been driven, a vehicle with 100,000 miles that’s been to every service appointment would be the better option. So, what is good mileage on a used car? The team at Mazda of Jackson has your answer.

 

What Exactly is Good Mileage on a Used Car?

As mentioned earlier, a car with higher mileage is sometimes the better option. It’s hard to give a direct answer because the factors that go into buying used take into account more than the mileage. After you choose the type of used vehicle you want, be sure to take into consideration more than just what the odometer reads. These other factors include how many owners the vehicle has had, what type of climate it has been driven in, and even if the previous owner’s have taken good care of the vehicle by following the recommended service schedule.

Used Cars: What To Pay Attention To

Make sure you know as much as you can about the model you’re interested in before you buy. Here are some important questions you’ll want to ask before choosing your next pre-owned, or certified pre-owned, model:

  • Are the miles mostly highway miles or city miles? Highway miles are better as there isn’t much stop and go traffic.
  • Climate. Has the vehicle been driven in humidity, wooded areas, etc?
  • Has the car been in an accident?
  • Is there a record of the car’s maintenance?
