When you start your search for the perfect used car, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by choices. Many Waterford drivers ask us “What is good mileage on a used car?” The answer is more complicated than a single number. While the old rule of thumb was to choose a car under 100,000 miles, modern cars are safer and more reliable than ever before. A well-maintained car may last well into the 200,000 mile mark! Learn all about good mileage for a used car and explore the other factors that matter most with Old Saybrook Hyundai.
Determining what is good mileage on a used car is important, but it’s one part of the used car package. A low mileage car might be a great buy, but you’ll want to investigate the following categories as well to ensure that your car is the right pick.
As you can tell, good mileage for a used car is just one part of the equation. For example, a car with 50,000 miles could be a great buy if well-maintained and in good condition. But, it could be a poor buy if it has been neglected over the years. We recommend thinking about how many miles are potentially left on the car, rather than how many have been driven. A used car with 100,000 miles might have four more years of life left in it – and it could be the perfect vehicle for a driver on a budget.
The average driver logs around 12,000 miles per year, so you can use this figure to compare the car’s age vs. mileage. You might be surprised to hear that a newer high-mileage car might be a better buy than a lower-mileage older car. Why?
Now that you know all about the factors that matter, start shopping at Old Saybrook Hyundai. Our team is ready to help you find just the right model for your needs and budget, so contact us with any questions.
