After all, you don’t want to buy aused car just to have it break down on you somewhere in Bensalem, PA the next day.

Good Mileage for a Used Car

What is good mileage on a used car? Well, the average mileage that is put on a vehicle in a year in the Princeton, NJ area is 12,000 to 15,000 miles. So, a car that is four years old should have no more than 60,000 miles on it. If it does, it’s considered high mileage, and you should use caution when deciding whether to purchase it. Of course, the older a car is, and the more mileage a car has on it, the less life you can expect from it. However, some compact cars can go well beyond 100,000 miles if they’ve been well-maintained.

Other Factors to Consider

Once you’ve figured out how much mileage is good mileage for the used car you’re thinking about buying, you will need to consider some other things. For instance, was the car driven on the highway or in stop-and-go city traffic, which is much harder on a vehicle? Has the car spent most of its time in a harsh climate where it was driven on salted roads in the winter? Does it have a maintenance record? A high-mileage car that has been well-maintained may be in much better shape than one with lower mileage but was poorly maintained.
