What Is Good Mileage For A Used Car?


Shopping for used cars in Humble? Then you’ll want to look beyond the odometer. Mileage is important, but it’s not the only factor to consider. A used car’s physical and mechanical condition will influence your decision, as well as general upkeep and driving history. In this guide, Humble Hyundai breaks down everything you need to pay attention to when looking for your ideal used car!

Used Car Shopping Advice 

In addition to good mileage for a used car, consider the following:

  • How the car was driven previously, because a car driven in stop-and-go traffic endures more wear and tear than one driven primarily on the Houston-area highways.
  • Where the car was driven previously, as colder climates put more stress on a vehicle.
  • Condition of the vehicle based on an inspection from a certified mechanic, because hidden mechanical issues will be costly down the road.
  • Maintenance history of the vehicle to ensure it has been well cared for throughout its lifetime.

Good Mileage For a Used Car

While there is no tried and true figure for good mileage for a used car, there are a few things to keep in mind when looking at mileage.

  • The average The Woodlands-area driver clocks about 12,000 miles a year. Keep this in mind when looking at age and mileage.
  • Low mileage doesn’t mean a better buy. It might indicate that a car hasn’t been driven regularly, which can lead to high repair costs later on.
  • Because of the assumption that low mileage is better, low-mileage vehicles tend to come with higher price tags.
  • Certified Pre-Owned Hyundai models are a strong option in the used car market if you want a high-quality model at a used car price.
  • A vehicle with a well-documented maintenance history is preferable to one that has been neglected.
