What is Good Mileage On A Used Car?

What is good mileage on a used car? Good mileage for a used car is anything under 100,000 miles. Several factors, including good mileage, largely determine the quality of a used car. A good routine maintenance report can make a high mileage used car a better buy than a poorly maintained car with less mileage. The Jim Glover Chevrolet guide to good mileage for used cars will help you choose a model that’s of good value. 

How to Shop for a Used Car

When you’re shopping for a used car near Broken Arrow, it’s important to consider several factors during your vehicle inspection. 

  • Usage – If the previous owner drove the car on an open highway, it will be in better condition than one with the same mileage driven in stop-and-go traffic. 
  • Location – Vehicles wear down quicker in cold, wet conditions than in warm and dry conditions. 
  • Condition – Ask a certified technician to look under the hood to rule out any issues requiring future visits to the service center. Having a professional check will also ensure the vehicle history report is properly fact-checked for inconsistencies. 
  • Maintenance – Inspect the maintenance history report for signs it was taken in for routine maintenance by the previous owner. 

Choosing a Used Car Based on Mileage

There are many factors that influence the value of a used car. A used car that has 50,000 miles on it but has been poorly maintained will be of less value than one that was well-maintained with 100,000 miles on it. Look at each car individually, evaluate its strong points and shortcomings, and determine whether it is the right or wrong vehicle for you. 

Mileage vs. Age 

Age plays a big role in determining the condition of a vehicle. No matter how much mileage a car has, older cars wear out, and only the most well-maintained vehicles can withstand the years of use inflicted on all its moving parts. 

If you want the benefits of buying a used car that’s only a few years old and has under 100,000 miles tracked to it, you should consider a certified pre-owned car for sale.
