Couple picking up new car from lot

When shopping around for a used vehicle, many car shoppers don’t just look at the physical and mechanical condition of the car. They also want to take a look at the mileage. Many would often suggest that people should purchase a vehicle that has more than 100,000 miles on it, but this isn’t a major rule to follow. If the vehicle has been well taken care of and maintained, it can be a great purchase. Learn more about purchasing a used car and knowing what a good mileage for a used car is from the team at INFINITI of Boerne near San Marcos.

How to Shop for a Used Car

When you’re out shopping for a quality used vehicle in the San Antonio area, there are things to consider in addition to the milage:

  • Usage – If a car has been driven 75,000 miles in stop and go traffic, it will wear down much sooner than a vehicle that’s been driven 75,000 miles on the open highway.
  • Location – Vehicles being driven in a dry, warm climate locale will experience less stress than vehicles from cold, wet climate areas.
  • Condition – Have a factory-trained and certified mechanic inspect the vehicle to there are no major issues, such as mechanical problems or rust.
  • Maintenance – Take a look at the vehicle’s maintenance history to ensure it’s been kept up to date on routine services like battery checks and oil changes. Having an irregular service history can be a sign of future costly problems.

Mileage vs. Age

A new car that has more mileage can be a great option over an older vehicle with low mileage. When deciding, it’s important to consider these factors:

  • A car that doesn’t get driven regularly often has higher repair costs. Mechanical issues or problems with rubber seals and gaskets develops when a car isn’t used regularly.
  • A well-documented maintenance history on a vehicle is a better option than a neglected one.
  • Low-mileage vehicles tend to come with a higher price tag.

Purchasing a certified pre-owned model is perfect for those looking for a like-new vehicle that has low mileage.
