What Is Good Mileage On A Used Car?

Car Spedometer and Odometer

Determining what is good mileage on a used car, such as a used Acadia,  is relative to its overall condition. Generally, we recommend being cautious about buying a car that has over 100,000 miles tracked to it. However, that is not always the case if the car is in otherwise good condition and has a vehicle history showing evidence of routine maintenance.

How to Shop for a Used Car at Don Hattan Dealerships

Shopping for a used car comes with a few extra steps than buying a new car. It’s wise to perform an inspection of every car you’re interested in and ask a mechanic to check under the hood. Here are a few things to consider when looking at used cars:

  • Usage – The way the previous owner drove the car has a big impact on its wear and tear. A car that’s driven in stop and go traffic will wear down faster than one driven on an open highway.
  • Location – Vehicles hold up better in warm and dry climates than in cold, wet climates.
  • Condition – Ask a certified mechanic to look under the hood for any problems kept out of the vehicle history report.
  • Maintenance – Fact check the vehicle’s maintenance history report. Signs of routine maintenance is a good indication that the car was well-maintained.

Mileage vs. Age

Mileage and age are arguably the two most important factors you should consider when buying a used car near Andover. It’s usually better to buy a newer car with higher mileage than an older model with lower mileage due to the effect of aging on a car’s reliability and safety on Maize roads. However, older cars are a good option if you want to find a car under 10k that will last another few years.

Certified pre-owned cars have age on their side, being five years old or less. They’re also under 100,000 miles, giving them an edge on both age and mileage, which lets you find incredible used Chevy Equinox models for sale.
