Good Mileage for a Used Car & Other Important Factors

Pre-owned vehicles with low mileage that have been neglected could end up developing issues since rubber seals and gaskets can wear down over time if they’re not being used regularly. This means that the higher mileage pre-owned vehicle with excellent maintenance could be a smarter choice for your Howell Township commute.

With that in mind, mileage is just one piece of the puzzle when it comes to purchasing a pre-owned vehicle. Here are some other important factors you’ll want to consider before you begin your search:

  • Driving Style: A pre-owned vehicle with 50,000 miles in stop-and-go traffic may have more wear and tear than one with 50,000 miles driven on the highway. It’s important to understand the driving style of the previous owner that had the vehicle you’re interested in purchasing.
  • Temperature: Extreme cold and wet climates or hot and humid climates could create extra wear on a vehicle. Find out the previous location of the vehicle was in if possible to help you narrow down your search.
  • Overall Condition: Make sure you have your vehicle inspected before purchasing. Even though we do our best to ensure that model you’re choosing is a high-quality one, understanding the overall condition of your vehicle can add extra peace of mind during ownership.
  • Maintenance: Maintenance history is a vital factor to consider when you’re searching for a used car. Ensure the vehicle you’re interested in has a solid service history and wasn’t neglected.
