How many miles should an used car still have left for it to be good enough for you to buy it?

Serious answers only please.

For the most part, its not how much it has left, it is how much it has on it already.
the answer after considering the overall condition is if it has around a 100K on it then it should still be ok for another 100k............

Really depends on how well it's been maintained

Dealerships try not to buy anything over 70,000. There's no such thing as "miles left" however, its just until the car stops working, whatever that number may be. There is a trade-in appraisal that can be conducted at a dealership if you're looking to buy a new car. If you're selling it to an individual, it depends on them and what they had before whether or not the amount of miles your car has is acceptable.

What if the car has already been used 170,000 miles is that still good.. or no?

Well it won't look good.. but if its in good condition with no scratches or dents and drives nicely, and has been maintained well, those are all good things that will help. But if you're selling it to just some person who has a vehicle with 200,000+ miles then it could look even better to them.

I just bought a 2009 Malibu with 44,000 miles. I would think 12-15,000 miles per year is a fair amount.
