What Is Good Mileage On A Used Car?

Man Signing Car Lease

Almost everybody has heard one or two horror stories about drivers who make poor investments in high-mileage used cars, but what is good mileage on a used car, and how can you make sure that you’re getting a fair price?  The cut-off for great mileage is around 30,000 miles for savvy Rye-area shoppers, but today’s used vehicles are lasting longer than ever. Even if a model has 100,000 miles or more, it could keep running smoothly for years to come.

The Smart Way to Shop for a Used Car

Ultimately, buying a used car is about weighing multiple different factors; focusing on mileage alone could cause you to miss out on something really special. Here’s what you should keep in mind:

  • Mileage vs. Age: The average driver in Stamford or New Canaan puts on around 10,000 to 12,000 miles per year. A car that’s been driven especially hard or especially often may not last as long.
  • Maintenance History: Even a vehicle with relatively low mileage may not be a good purchase if it hasn’t been well maintained! Check vehicle history reports to see how your chosen used car has been cared for.
  • Condition and Structure: Hidden structural damage caused by an accident may significantly reduce a car’s expected lifespan, even if everything looks alright on the outside. Have a mechanic take a look before you buy, especially if you’re purchasing from a private seller.
  • Location: Vehicles tend to hold up best in cool and temperate climates. If a model was previously driven in especially hot or cold temperatures, it may have accumulated a little bit of extra wear.

Looking for a used car that’s as close to new as one can be? Our retired service loaners are some of the most exciting options you’ll find in the area.

For a Used Car with Good Mileage, Consider CPO!
