What Is Good Mileage On A Used Car?

Couple Driving and Smiling

While making sure to check out a used car’s physical and mechanical condition is important, you also want to take a look at its mileage. Many will advise you to stay away from a used car that has over 100,000 miles on it, but that’s not necessarily a steadfast rule. If the used vehicle you are considering has been well maintained, it could still be a good deal even with all those miles on it. Orange Park used car shoppers should factor in condition, usage, maintenance history, and location before they buy. Learn more from Lou Sobh's Honda of the Avenues.

The Smart Way to Shop for a Used Car

In addition to the mileage, Jacksonville area used car shoppers should also look at:

  • Usage – A car that has been driven 75,000 miles in stop and go traffic will suffer more wear and tear than one that has recorded 75,000 miles on the open highway. It’s important to get the previous owner’s driving history before you buy.
  • Location – Vehicles that have been driven in a cold, wet climate undergo more strain and stress than one from a locale that has a dry, warm climate.
  • Condition – Have a certified mechanic inspect the vehicle to determine if there are any mechanical or physical issues that will need to be taken care of. You should figure the cost of repairs into your budget.
  • Maintenance – Review the maintenance history of the vehicle to ensure that it has been kept up to date on routine maintenance services like oil changes. A spotty service history can be a red flag indicating that the vehicle may develop costly problems in the future.

Mileage vs. Age

In some cases, a newer car with high mileage may be a better choice than an older car with low-mileage. Here are a few factors you should take into account before buying:

  • If the car hasn’t been driven regularly it will often have higher repair costs. Mechanical issues, as well as worn or brittle rubber seals and gaskets, are likely to develop if the car has been left parked for extended periods.
  • A vehicle with a well-documented maintenance history is a safer choice than one that has been neglected.
  • The price of a low mileage vehicles is often higher.

If you would prefer a like-new, low-mileage vehicle, you may wish to consider one of our Honda Certified Pre-Owned models.
