2022 Aston Martin Vantage racing


Have you been looking for low-mileage used cars for sale? That can be a smart purchase, but what is good mileage for a used car, exactly? Is it less than 100,000 miles? That used to be the case, but what is considered high mileage for a used car today can be much higher and depends on a lot of factors. We want you to make informed car-buying decisions. So, we talk below about what kind of mileage you should look for when you shop around Jupiter for used cars. The answers may surprise you.

What is Good Mileage for a Used Car That Has Been Maintained?

You don’t want to buy a car that has too many miles on it if you plan to use it every day to go back and forth to work. But what is good mileage for a used car? What is considered high mileage on a used car depends on a number of factors, including the make and type of vehicle that you’re buying, how it’s been driven, and how long it’s been maintained. For example, some cars are nearing the end of their lives around 100,000 miles. But others, like certain compacts and diesel pickups, are just getting started at that point. You’ll also want to take into account how quickly those miles were put on the car. Most experts agree that no more than 12,000 miles should be put on a car in a single year.

How Were the Miles Put on the Car?

It’s not all about the miles on the odometer. How were those miles put on the car? What is considered high mileage for a used car can be impacted by driving habits and other factors. Here are some things to look for as you shop for low-mileage used cars for sale:

  • Are the miles mostly highway miles or in Palm Beach Gardens traffic? Highway miles are much better.
  • Was the car driven in mostly mild weather or harsh weather?
  • Has the car been in an accident?
  • Is there a record of the car’s maintenance?
