What Is Considered Too High of Mileage for a Used Car

Cleveland drivers often ask us when they come into Jaguar Akron, “What is a mileage I should avoid in a used car?” Most people think to look for something with less than 100,000 miles. It’s important though to remember, a typical driver puts about 10,000-12,000 miles per year on their vehicle. These are other things to consider, aside from mileage, when shopping for a used vehicle:

  • The year of the car: During the last decade, auto manufactures have improved technology greatly. That means that the most recent used car should last well over 100,000 miles. Sometimes they will even last 200,000 miles or more.
  • The number of miles versus age of the car: A car that is only a couple of years old but has 50,000 miles could be in worse shape than a 4-year-old vehicle with 50,000 miles on it. The reason it could be in worse shape is that it has been driven extensively in a shorter period meaning there may be some serious damage under the hood.
  • Regularly Scheduled Maintenance: A car with 20,000 miles on it that hasn’t had any routine maintenance could be in worse shape than a car with 40,000 miles on it that has received routine maintenance. When purchasing any used vehicle, make sure you ask for validation of routine maintenance, and review the records.

Additional Things to Consider When Buying a Pre-Owned Vehicle

  • Model Generation: Sometimes, when a model with a stellar reputation is redesigned for the new generation, it doesn’t always go well. Also, a car with a poor reputation in the past could be improved greatly with a redesign. That’s why you should read consumer and auto pro reviews on any car you’re considering buying.
  • Vehicle History Report: A vehicle history report documents repair reports, any auto accidents, DMV records, and police records. These records will give you a better idea about the level of wear and tear the vehicle has had.
  • Location: The Vehicle History Report will also tell you the location of where the vehicle has been registered. Remember, dryer climates locations, like Arizona, are easier on vehicles than places with lots of rain, humidity or other extreme weather conditions.
  • Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles: If you’re shopping for low mileage used cars for sale, you might want to opt for a certified pre-owned vehicle. CPOs provide many benefits, such as a multi-point inspection and free roadside assistance.
