What Is Considered High Mileage for a Used Car?

So, what is considered high mileage for a used car? Well, due to an increase in overall quality of vehicles the lifespan of a %%di_make%% increases. Most Lowell drivers ideally look for a used car under 100,000 miles. An average driver puts on anywhere from 10,000 to 12,000 miles per year. Here are a few things to consider as you search for low mileage used cars for sale:

  • How many miles vs. age of the car: A one year old vehicle with 40,000 miles could be in worse shape than a 5 year old vehicle with just 60,000 miles. The extensive amount of driving can shape the condition of the vehicle. 
  • Year of model: While car manufacturing has improved greatly, newer models can last well over 100,000 miles and some past 200,000 miles! 
  • Routine Maintenance: Even if a vehicle has 12,000 miles but didn’t undergo routine maintenance, it could have significant issues compared to a 40,000 mile vehicle that had routine maintenance done. Always ask for car history at any Hudson dealership. 

Other Facts about Used Cars to Consider

  • Vehicle History Report: An extensive vehicle history report should be available from the dealership. This report should include repair reports, collisions, police records, and DMV records. 
  • Location: This fact often is forgotten, but learn where the car “lived” whether it was in a more dry climate or harsher climate that would experience winter.
  • Foreign Luxury Car Brands: Luxury car brands often come with expensive repair costs because the cost of shipping luxurious OEM parts overseas is expensive. Typically, these brands have stellar warranties and perks as your vehicle is being serviced.
