What is Good Mileage for a Used Car?

Used cars

What is good mileage for a used car? The question crosses the mind of everyone who looks for low-mileage used cars for sale in Marrero and New Orleans. To get the answer, consider the Kia certified pre-owned program. In order to qualify, a vehicle needs to have fewer than 60,000 miles on the odometer. However, as far as Kia used cars are concerned, even a vehicle with many more miles can be a great investment!

In the past, most drivers heard that any car with more than 100,000 miles was a bad investment, but what is considered high mileage for a used car today? With advances in vehicle technology, most vehicles are expected to last for 200,000 miles or more. This means, when you go shopping for low-mileage used cars in Harvey, you’re going to have tons of exciting options.

What is Considered High Mileage for a Used Car?

It’s no secret: Older vehicles with more miles tend to incur much higher repair costs over the same time spans. However, since vehicles are lasting longer and longer, the difference between a car with 50,000 miles and a car with 150,000 miles might not be quite as significant as you’d expect. However, once you hit that 200,000-mile threshold, you’re going to start seeing higher repair costs at your local service center.

What Else Should You Consider When Searching for Low Mileage Used Cars for Sale?

  • Mileage vs. Age: The average driver puts on about 10,000-12,000 miles a year. So, divide the total mileage by the age of the vehicle to see if the car falls above or below the average usage.
  • Year of Manufacture: Advances in vehicle technology just keep coming, and that means that more recently produced models are going to offer more total value than yesteryear’s used cars. 
  • Regularly Scheduled Maintenance: Regular maintenance just might be the most important determinant of a car’s lifespan! If a model has a well-recorded service history, it’ll probably last a lot longer than another comparable vehicle.
  • Model Generation: A lot can change from year to year, especially if a major redesign has occurred. Talk to our sales team when you’re comparing options, and we’ll point you to the best model years.
  • Vehicle History Report: If you access your model’s vehicle history report, you should absolutely do so! You’ll be able to view collision reports, police records, reported structural damage, and other factors that can turn a good investment into a bad one.
