What is Good Mileage for a Used Car?

Used cars on a lot

There are many factors to consider when you’re shopping for a used car in the Land O' Lakes area. Used car mileage is just one of them for a used Honda Civic. There are a lot of opinions on how many miles on a used car are too many, but the fact is there are many factors to consider. While some people might say that 100,000 miles isn’t good mileage for a used car, that high-mileage car could be a great bargain if it was made in the last decade and has been exceptionally well-maintained. Learn more about what is good mileage for a used car with the experts at Wesley Chapel Honda.

The Smart Way to Shop with Used Car Mileage in Mind

Instead of just going by the numbers on the odometer, you should also take these factors into consideration when you’re shopping for a used car:

  • Usage: Wear and tear depends more on how a car was driven on Tampa streets and roads than the used car mileage. 75,000 miles in a well-maintained car driven mostly on the highway is going to have less wear and tear than 75,000 miles driven in stop-and-go traffic.
  • Location: The humid climate in Zephyrhills can cause a car to oxidize quicker, but the warm climate is better than a cold and wet one for a car. Dry heat is the best climate for cars.
  • Condition: Even though the service department at Wesley Chapel Honda inspects every used car for safety and dependability, it’s still a good idea to have another mechanic take a look at the vehicle before you buy.
  • Maintenance: Check the maintenance history of the vehicle. A car with more mileage that didn’t deviate from its maintenance schedule has better used car mileage than one with fewer miles that wasn’t as well-maintained.

How Many Miles on a Used Car Are Too Many?

There is no perfect way to answer, “What is good mileage on a used car? or “How many miles are too many on a used vehicle?” Instead, think in terms of how many miles you can get out of a vehicle. A typical driver adds around 12,000 a year to a car, which will help you calculate how long a used car might last. If you’re looking for a vehicle to drive for a couple of years, an affordable used car with 100,000 miles that’s been well-maintained can easily have another four years of life on Wesley Chapel streets. Mileage is also less of a factor than things like if a car hasn’t been regularly driven, which can lead to high repair costs.
