What Is Good Mileage On A Used Car?

hand over keys

When you’re in the market for a used car, mileage matters. It used to be commonly accepted that a vehicle with over 100,000 miles wasn’t worth buying. However, depending on its repair and maintenance history, that’s no longer necessarily the case. Discover how condition, location, and usage should influence your used car buying decision at Silko Honda near Taunton.

Find Out Good Mileage for a Used Car

If you’re looking at a used Honda, you’ll want to weigh the following factors along with mileage:

  • Use – If you can, ask for the previous owner’s driving history before you buy, because not all mileage is equal. A vehicle will wear faster with 75,000 miles of stop and go traffic vs. 75,000 highway miles.
  • Location – A car that’s coming from a cold, wet climate will have been under more stress than a vehicle is coming from a dry, warm climate.
  • Condition – Have your vehicle inspected for upcoming repair issues, like rust or engine problems, and figure this amount into your budget. A certified mechanic can provide a thorough examination of the vehicle as well as provide an estimate for services and repairs.
  • Maintenance – See if there are maintenance records provided for the vehicle. A history of spotty maintenance could be a sign of issues to come.

The bottom line: You’ll want to consider a range of factors when deciding on a used car.

Mileage vs. Age

While the assumption is often that a low-mileage car is better than a high-mileage vehicle, that’s not always the case. You’ll want to take other variables into account:

  • A car that hasn’t been driven regularly can end up needing more costly repairs. Not driving a car can cause drivetrain issues or cracking in rubber seals.
  • A car with a well-documented maintenance history should take preference over one that hasn’t been properly cared for.
  • Cars with low mileage sometimes have a premium associated with them.

If you’re considering a car that’s newer but has higher mileage than an older car with lower miles, it’s not necessarily a bad value. Make sure you consider all factors when choosing your next new-to-you vehicle.

Looking for models that strike the right balance between age and mileage? A certified pre-owned model is held to strict standards for both!
