What is Good Mileage On A Used Car?

Driving a Car on a Sunny Day

Mileage is an important deciding factor in whether or not someone purchases a used vehicle, but what is good mileage on a used car? There is a common misconception in Canton that if a used car has over 100,000 miles, you should run. If the vehicle has been well maintained, it could still be worth a purchase. Other important deciding factors for Woodstock area drivers to consider when shopping for a pre-owned vehicle include condition, location, and usage. Learn more in this guide from Shottenkirk Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.



Choosing a Used Car Based on Mileage

There are many factors that go into shopping for a used car in Roswell based on mileage:

  • Life Cycle – Consider the additional mileage left in the vehicle. A well-maintained vehicle can usually only last about 200,000 miles.
  • Driveability – How well is it driving during your test drive?
  • Certified Pre-Owned – Has the vehicle been inspected and refurbished by the dealer? This can give you assurance that no matter the mileage, your car can last you a long time.

How to Shop for a Used Car

Here are some other factors to consider other than good mileage for a used car:

  • Usage – A car driven 75,000 miles in stop and go traffic will wear down sooner than one that has racked up 75,000 miles on the open highway. Make sure that you get the previous owner’s driving history before you buy.
  • Location – Vehicles that have been driven in a locale that has a dry, warm climate, undergo less stress than vehicles from areas that have a cold, wet climate.
  • Maintenance – Check the maintenance history of the vehicle to ensure that it has been kept up-to-date on routine services like oil changes. An irregular service history can be a sign of expensive problems in the future.
