What is Good Mileage On a Used Car?

2022 Lexus NX Front Interior
As you search for a used car throughout the Lake Worth area, you may be asking, “What is good mileage on a used car?” Well, many West Palm Beach drivers might say that any used car with over 100,000 miles on it is no good, but that’s not necessarily true. Read on below to find out why with Lexus of Palm Beach!

The Best Way to Shop for a Used Car

Besides asking, “What is good mileage on a used car?” You should ask about the following factors as well:

  • Usage – Review the previous car owner’s driving history. If a car has more experience driving in stop-and-go traffic versus on open highway, the stop-and-go traffic will wear it down sooner.
  • Location – Vehicles that have been driven in mainly a dry and warm climate typically have less wear and tear than those from a wet or cold atmosphere.
  • Condition – Have a certified mechanic inspect the car’s condition for rust, mechanical problems, and more.
  • Maintenance – Review the maintenance history to ensure a routine maintenance schedule has been completed prior to your ownership.

Choosing a Used Car Based on Mileage

Since there is no perfect answer to, “What is good mileage on a used car?” There are several factors. If you’re expecting to use this vehicle to drive from Palm Beach Gardens to Delray Beach and beyond, it’s better to think what kind of mileage you’ll get out of the used car. The typical driver will put 12,000 miles per year on a car, so keep this in mind when you compare age vs. mileage.

Mileage vs. Age

A newer pre-owned vehicle with high mileage might be a better choice than a low-mileage older vehicle due to the following factors:

  • A car that hasn’t been driven regularly will often have higher repair costs. Mechanical issues or problems with rubber seals and gaskets can develop if a car isn’t driven on a regular basis.
  • Low-mileage vehicles often come with a higher price tag.

Consider a certified pre-owned vehicle which has undergone tests yet still is not marked at a new vehicle price if you are looking both for a recent model and low mileage!
