What is Good Mileage on a Used Car?

2020 Jeep Wrangler In Forest


In addition to looking at a used vehicle’s mechanical and physical features that you can enjoy, you will want to check the mileage. While most people would suggest that you don’t choose a used car over 100,000 miles, that is not a hard and fast rule and there definitely are exceptions. If the vehicles have been taken care of, then this could be a good buy in the long term. Some important features for East Hill area to think about would be location, condition, and usage. Learn more about the low mileage used cars with us at Major World Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, or take a look at our new vehicle inventory if you would look for something fresher.



The Smart Way to Shop for a Used Car

Here are some other things to consider when searching for a used car in the Manhattan area:

  • Usage – A car driven 75,000 miles in stop and go traffic will wear down sooner than 75,000 miles on an open highway. Make sure that you get the previous owner’s driving history before you invest in a vehicle.
  • Location – Vehicles driven in a warmer dry climate undergo less stress than a vehicle that is in a colder wetter climate.
  • Condition – Get a mechanic to inspect your vehicle to determine if there are any problem such as rust or a damaged engine. Figure the cost into the actual long term budget of your vehicle.
  • Maintenance – Check the maintenance history of the vehicle to make sure that things are up to date on aspects such as routine oil changes. An irregular service history can be a sign of more expensive problems in the future. Make sure to save with our parts and service specials.

Mileage vs. Age

A newer car with high mileage might be a better choice than an older car with lower-mileage. Make sure to consider these factors before visiting us at Major World Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram near Westbury:

  • A car that hasn’t been driven regularly will have higher repair costs such as rubber seal or gasket problems.
  • A vehicle with a well-documented maintenance history is a better option than a vehicle that does not have that.
  • Low mileage vehicles often come with a higher price tag.
