Should You Only Buy A Used Car With Low Mileage?

If you’re in the market for a good used car, you might wonder if that automatically means you need to look for one with low mileage. Some people think you should only pay attention to the current condition it’s in. But according to the experts at Barrett Motors in Sachse, Garland and Rowlett, that would be a mistake.

Here’s why.

A vehicle with low mileage usually has experienced less wear and tear. Not always, but 95% of the time. Lower miles usually means you can trust the components of the vehicle to not wear out as fast. And the last thing you want to have to do is pay for major repairs right after you buy a car, truck or SUV, right?

With some vehicles, the transmissions go out after a certain amount of miles. You can research specific models on the internet to find out more, and we recommend that you do that.

The Low Mileage Advantage

Here’s another advantage to buying a vehicle with lower miles. If you plan to sell it one day, you should consider the resale value. Vehicles with lower miles sell for more money. However, there are a few makes and models (like an older Toyota Land Cruiser) that can still fetch good money with high mileage, because they are built to last.

In all likelihood, a lower mileage car will cost you more than one with high mileage. But it will probably end up saving you money on maintenance and repairs in the long run.

At Barrett Motors, our Sales team is happy to help you decide which low mileage vehicle will be best for you. You can also research specific makes and models on and other automotive sites. And remember, every single vehicle we sell at Barrett Motors is Auto Check Certified. It’s been thoroughly inspected and passed with flying colors, or it wouldn’t be on our lot!
