What is Good Mileage On A Pre-Owned Car?

Back in the 90s and early aughts, good mileage for a pre-owned car or SUV was anything under 100,000 miles. Today, that’s not always the case. More and more, vehicles can last upwards of 250,000 miles, which means that identifying the condition of a vehicle is more complex. Let’s look at some indicators that you can consider when shopping for a pre-owned car in good condition near North Canton. Then, explore our selection of pre-owned vehicles and contact Kempthorn Motors to book a test drive a used Land Rover or used Volkswagen in Canton!

How to Shop for a Pre-Owned Car The Right Way

If you’re shopping for a pre-owned C-Class or used Volvo near Massillon, and you’re wondering, “What is good mileage on a pre-owned car?”, know that good mileage on a pre-owned car is one factor among many to consider. If you want to assess the real condition a vehicle, consider the following :

  • How it Was Driven – If the car drove those 75,000 miles on country roads, it’s in far better condition than a car that drove those 75,000 miles in Cleveland traffic.
  • Climate – A vehicle that was driven in a dry or warm climate has undergone less stress than a vehicle that was driven in a cold and wet climate.
  • Condition – If you’re worried, get a third-party mechanic to inspect the vehicle to see if there’s any rust damage or more subtle mechanical problems.
  • Maintenance – Ask for a vehicle report and make sure that the previous owner kept up with the vehicle’s maintenance intervals. You’ll also be able to see what repairs have been made to the vehicle.

Choosing a Pre-Owned Car Based on Good Mileage

All the previously mentioned factors can change the definition of what good mileage for a pre-owned car is. If you’re looking for some general rules of thumb, however, most pre-owned cars with less than 50,000 miles are likely to be in good shape. A less expensive pre-owned car with 100,000 miles will probably last you another four years if it’s in solid condition.
