The first thing you probably check on a used car for sale is the odometer. That’s because, like most Virginia Beach drivers who are shopping for pre-owned cars, you’re looking for low mileage used cars for sale. But what is good mileage for a used car? It depends. What is considered high mileage for a used car can vary based on maintenance, driving conditions, the model, and more. We want you to make an informed choice, so let’s take a closer look below!

 

 

What is Good Mileage for a Used Car: The Math

You should look beyond the odometer to determine if a used car has too many miles on it to use for your Chesapeake commute. What is considered high mileage for a used car also depends on how long it took to rack up those miles. So, take a look at the model year, as well. Typically, no more than 12,000 to 15,000 miles should be put on a car in a year’s time. If it has more than that, the vehicle may have incurred too much wear and tear. That means, then, that a used car that is four years old should ideally have no more than 48,000 to 60,000 miles on it.

What is Good Mileage for a Used Car: Beyond the Miles and Model Year

Besides considering how many miles have been put on the car, you need to look at how those miles were put on the car. Here are some factors that impact what is considered high mileage for a used car:

  • Was the car maintained regularly?
  • Was the car driven in rough climates?
  • Was the car driven mostly along the coast or in an area that salts their roads? Sand and salt can cause underbody rust.
  • Was the car driven mostly on the highway or in the city?
  • Has the car been in accidents?
