If you want to get the most bang for your buck, what is considered high mileage for a used car? Many Raleigh drivers search for low mileage used cars for sale in hopes of getting a higher quality model with fewer potential repair costs, but mileage is only part of the equation. Learn what is good mileage for a used car, and start shopping for your next model at Hendrick Chevrolet Cary.

What Is Considered High Mileage for a Used Car?

When drivers in Apex think of “low mileage used cars for sale,” they generally picture a vehicle with under 100,000 miles on the odometer. However, there are many factors to keep in mind when sorting through your pre-owned options.

  • Miles vs. Age: Most drivers travel 10,000 to 12,000 miles per year. So a 1-year-old car with 40,000 miles has been driven much more frequently than a 5-year-old car with 60,000 miles on it.
  • Year of Manufacture: Newer models from the last decade are more dependable than ever before, and you might get well over 200,000 miles out of a well-maintained model!
  • Maintenance: Maintenance plays a huge role in a car’s longevity, so a neglected vehicle with 15,000 miles might actually be a riskier buy than a 30,000-mile car that has never missed an oil change. Consider asking for proof of maintenance to be safe!

Other Tips and Tricks for Buying Used

  • Model Generation: Some model generations are successful, and others are not. Be sure to check reputable sites like Kelley Blue Book or Edmunds.com for reviews on your particular model year.
  • Vehicle History Report: Vehicle history reports disclose any repair reports, collisions, police records, and DMV records. These reports can reveal a lot about the car’s wear and tear.
  • Location: A mild climate is easier on a vehicle than extreme heat or cold. When you get the Vehicle History Report, see where the car has been driven previously. This can give you a clue of any other potential issues to consider, like rusting. 
  • Foreign Luxury Car Brands: Foreign luxury vehicles might be fun to drive around Holly Springs, but they can also be challenging when it comes to repairs. Consider buying Certified Pre-Owned to ensure that the vehicle is under a warranty.
