What is Considered High Mileage for a Used Car?

Regardless of how well-made a vehicle might be, you’re going to see the likelihood and cost of repairs rise as it ages. As such, most Orangeville drivers will look for a pre-owned vehicle with fewer than 160,000 km on the odometer.

Most drivers put around 16,000 km to 19,000 km on their vehicle each year, so here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Miles vs. Age: A one-year-old vehicle with 60,000 km on it may be in worse shape than a five-year-old vehicle with 100,000 km, since it has probably been driven excessively.
  • Year of Manufacture: Car manufacturing has improved dramatically over the last decade, so more recent used models are lasting well past 320,000 km rather than 160,000 km.
  • Maintenance Record: A vehicle with 30,000 km on the clock that didn’t keep up with routine maintenance may be less reliable than one with 60,000 km that kept to its recommended service schedule.

What Else Should You Consider When Buying a Used Car?

Those are the three main things you should consider alongside mileage, but they aren’t the only factors to think about. Further points include:

  • Model Generation: Some models will have performed better before or after major redesigns.
  • Vehicle History Report: This will show things like repair reports, collision histories, police records, and DMV records.
  • Location: A vehicle that has been in extremely hot or cold parts of the country will probably show greater wear and tear than your average model.
