When buying a used car, what would be considered as good mileage?

Report as

It really depends on the car and its quality. Do a registration number check using http://goo.gl/SaEE1w or a similar provider (with this I had the most accurate results) and from there you can do further investigation depending on what 'bad info' you'll get.

Anything under 15 K per year.

That would depend entirely on the year of the car.

When buying a used car, the mileage will depend on how long the car has been used. For example, if a car is 5 years old, it should have a mileage of about 50,000 to 60,000 miles. The average rule of thumb for normal miles is around 12,000 to 15,000 per year. You can also seek advice from a mechanic.

Depends on the year and vehicle. I've had mustangs finally give out at 254,000 miles. I've had a toyota truck give out at 88,000 miles. Figure Chevy cars are good till 100,000 miles I seen chevy trucks go close to 400,000 miles. Its just varies. But all around? Anything 80,000 and under is good mileage.

I would say 12,000 a yr or less would be good. Gotta watch out for people who have altered the mileage. I know in a 99-04 f150 ya can unplug the mileage on the back of the instrument panel and plug I. Whenever ya want so be careful fr that. If it seems to good to be true well prob is. Meaning mileage and price if it's cheap and low mileage something. Is wrong.

There's a general formula: if you double the engine RPM, you quarter it's life. I've gotten 340,000 From a Ford V8, but can't get more than 100,000 from a Japanese 4 cyl.

Simply get a Chevrolet Volt from a car dealership new or used, that will maximize your mileage.

USA is the only country that puts so much value in a cars mileage. The wear and tear, cost of repair and part replacement, means more than the miles to me..

I think anything below 50K would be considered as decent mileage while looking for any used vehicles. As, after this the vehicle needs replacement of parts very often, so if you are getting below this mark I would say go for it, like I bought an Audi A4 last month from http://www.automotix.net/ with 35K miles on it at a decent price.
