What Is Good Mileage On A Used Car?

Land Rover Annapolis offers a wide range of pre-owned vehicles to the Edgewater region’s drivers, and we’re happy to answer questions for those who are new to the market! If you’ve ever wondered, “What is good mileage on a used car?” you’ve come to the right place. Although 100,000 miles was once a cut-off point for many would-be buyers, today’s pre-owned vehicles are lasting longer than ever! Even a used car with 150,000 miles can be a safe bet.

The Smart Way to Shop for a Used Car

Finding a used car with low mileage is important, but the smart used car shopper will look at a variety of factors when making a decision. Here, we’ve highlighted the most important considerations for drivers near Severna Park and Bowie:

  • Usage – Did you know that city miles generate more wear and tear than highway miles? Ask about the previous owner’s driving habits if you buy from a private seller.
  • Location – If the vehicle’s previous location was particularly hot, cold, or wet, it probably has more wear than a vehicle that was only used in temperate, dry climates.
  • Condition – You should always conduct your own inspection when buying a used car. Many drivers will also bring their vehicles over to a local service center before they sign any paperwork.
  • Maintenance – Ask for a Vehicle History Report! A model that hasn’t been very well maintained is likely to rack up higher maintenance costs.

How to Shop for a Used Car: Mileage vs. Age

Although it often makes sense to choose the car with the lowest mileage, you should consider how old the vehicle is when you’re making a decision.

  • Even an old car with very low mileage can be a bad choice if it isn’t well maintained.
  • Older cars with low mileage are often poorly maintained. Some parts simply break down over time, even if the vehicle isn’t being used.
  • If you’re set on finding a low-mileage used car, you might end up paying a premium. Choosing a used car with higher mileage may be a better choice for your budget.

If you want to find a newer used car with a well-documented maintenance history and fewer than 60,000 miles, look for a certified pre-owned model in our inventory.
