What Is Good Mileage On A Used Car?

Pre-Owned Vehicles
Determining good mileage for a used car is more complicated than you would think. That’s because vehicles built in the 2000s and up were designed to take on far more miles than models from the 90s and earlier. High mileage on a newer vehicle may translate to a better condition than low mileage on an older vehicle. That said, 100,000 miles is considered relatively high across the board, but even then, it’s not uncommon for Chicago drivers to see 4 more years of usage out of a vehicle with that many miles on the odometer.

Read on for a more in-depth answer to the complex question, “What is good mileage on a used car?.” Then fill out a pre-approval and test drive the stock of low mileage used cars for sale at Sunrise Chevrolet in Glendale Heights.

 

 

How to Accurately Determine Vehicle Condition

While good mileage for a used car can be an important factor for Carol Stream car shoppers, the question, “What is good mileage on a used car?” isn’t the only thing you should be asking yourself. Also consider where the vehicle was driven, how it was driven, and whether or not it was properly maintained.

  • Usage – Note that a car that was mostly driven in stop-and-go traffic will be more worn down than a car that was primarily driven in the country, regardless of whether or not they have the same mileage.
  • Location – Vehicles that have primarily been driven in dry and warm climates do better than those driven in cold and wet climates.
  • Maintenance – If you can get a vehicle history report, make sure that the vehicle was regularly maintained. This will make a huge difference in determining the true condition of the vehicle.
