Good Mileage for a Used Car

For used car shoppers in Los Angeles, there’s no rule that is set in stone about what is good mileage on a used car? Being that the average driver puts more or less 12,000 miles on their vehicles every year, you can make a quick calculation of the model year and the number of miles it has to see how hard the vehicle was driven.

If you’re considering a vehicle 50,000 current miles, and it runs well, you should go for it. But it’s a good idea not to ignore the vehicle with 100,000 miles on it because if the vehicle is well maintained and serviced, you can drive it for a few more years!

The Smartest Way to Shop for a Used Car

When you’re shopping for a used car, there are a number of key details that you should have in mind. These details will not only get you a great deal but an efficient car that still has many more adventures in it. In addition to good mileage for a used car, keep an eye out for the following details:

  • Usage and Wearing – A car driven 75,000 miles in stop-and-go traffic will wear down sooner than one that has racked up 75,000 miles on the open highway. Make sure that you get the previous owner’s driving history before you buy.
  • Location – Warm, dry regions cause less wear and tear to a vehicle than colder, wet climates.
  • Condition – Get a certified mechanic to inspect the vehicle to determine if there are any issues, such as mechanical problems or rust, that will need to be dealt with. Figure this cost into your budget.
  • Maintenance – Check the maintenance history of the vehicle to ensure that it has been kept up to date on routine services like oil changes. Irregular service history can be a sign of expensive problems in the future.
