What is Good Mileage on a Used Car?

While it’s important to take into consideration a used car’s physical and mechanical condition when searching for a new-to-you model, you’ll also want to learn about good mileage on a used car. Most would avoid a used car with over 100,000 miles, but sometimes, this could be a better option than a model with less mileage and no previous maintenance history. Learn more about good mileage on a used car, what other factors to take into account, and more with our team at Acura of Escondido.

The Smart Way to Shop for a Used Car

If you’re on the market for a used car, be sure to keep in mind these factors in addition to the mileage:

  • Condition: You’ll want to make sure a certified technician takes a look at the vehicle to determine if there are any issues that will need to be addressed before you purchase it. These costs should be factored into your budget when used car shopping in Escondido for a used TLX or ILX.
  • Location: If the vehicle is driven in a dry, warm climate, it will have less stress put on it than if it’s from a colder, wet climate.
  • Usage: Vehicles that are constantly driven in stop and go traffic will tend to wear down faster than those that rack up mileage on open highways in Carlsbad. Learn more about the vehicle’s previous owner’s driving history.
  • Maintenance: Make sure the vehicle has been serviced regularly, receiving oil changes and other recommended maintenance services. If it has an irregular service history, this could be a sign of potential costly issues in the future.


Choosing a Used Car Based on Mileage

So what is good mileage on a used car? There’s no exact way to answer this question as there are many factors that go into buying a used car. While there’s plenty of information to keep in mind, it is best to think about how much mileage you can get out of a used vehicle in Carlsbad. For example, if a used Acura RDX has 75,000 miles and seems to be in good working condition with a regular maintenance history, it’s likely a good buy. However, if you find a cheap used car with 100,000 miles but hasn’t had an oil change in years, it might not be worth the purchase. To help you decide, keep in mind that, on average, the typical driver can drive up to 12,000 miles a year.


Mileage vs. Age

In some cases, a newer model with high mileage can be a better option than an older car with low mileage. Before you make your decision, take these factors into account:

  • If the vehicle has been sitting parked more often than on the roads, it’s often going to have higher repair costs. If a vehicle isn’t driven on a regular basis, it can develop problems with rubber seals and gaskets or even with the mechanical components.
  • You’ll want to make sure that the vehicle you’re interested in has a well-documented maintenance history. This means you’re less likely to run into problems due to neglect in the future.
  • The used vehicles with low mileage tend to have a higher price tag.
