When you buy a used car, or used SUV, you want to make sure that you’re getting something dependable. That’s why most used car buyers around Albuquerque check a used car’s mechanical condition and mileage before purchasing. But what’s a good mileage on a used car? Too little mileage could have you pay more money up-front. Too much could have you paying through the nose for repair costs. But that’s not the case as often as many people think. Still have questions about a used Mazda CX-5? Read on or just contact us! We’re here to help.
Common sense has often dictated it’s smartest to buy a car with less than 100,000 miles on the odometer. But today’s cars are lasting longer with less required maintenance. See what we mean for yourself in this guide from University Mazda.
In addition to thinking about what’s a good mileage for a used car, you should also keep these things in mind when buying a pre-owned vehicle near Rio Rancho:
As you’re probably beginning to realize, the question, “what is good mileage on a used car,” doesn’t really have a set answer. If a used car, such as one of our used Mazda Miata, has around 50,000 miles and appears to be functioning properly, then it’s very likely a good buy. If you just need a car to last a couple of years for not much initial cost, though, a vehicle with 100,000 miles or even 150,000 miles could be a better financial decision. Remember: the average driver travels about 12,000 miles per year in their car, so keep that back-of-mind when comparing vehicle age vs. mileage.
Depending on your needs, buying a newer car with higher mileage could be better than buying an older car with lower mileage. Talk to our service experts if in doubt, but in the meantime, remember these key tips:
Searching for a quality used vehicle that offers the extra peace-of-mind that comes with warranty protection? A Mazda certified pre-owned vehicle could be a good option.
