Should You Only Buy A Used Car With Low Mileage?

Are you in the market for a quality used car? Do you wonder if that automatically means you need to look for one with low mileage? Does it matter?

Some people think that you should only pay attention to the vehicle’s current condition. But according to the experts at Barrett Motors, that would be a mistake.

Here’s why.

A vehicle with low mileage usually has less wear and tear. Not always, but 95 percent of the time. Lower miles typically mean that the components of the vehicle will not wear out as fast. The last thing you want is to pay for major repairs right after you buy a car, truck or SUV, right?

In some vehicles, transmissions go out after a certain amount of miles. If you’re curious about that, research specific models on the Internet to find out more.

The low mileage advantage

Another advantage to buying a vehicle with lower miles is that if you plan to resell it at some point, consider the resale value. Vehicles with lower miles sell for more money. However, there are a few makes and models, such as an older Toyota Land Cruiser, that can still fetch good money with high mileage. They are built to last.

Be prepared—a lower mileage vehicle will cost more than one with high mileage. The plus side is that it will probably end up saving money in the long run, just on maintenance and repairs.

The sales team at Barrett Motors is happy to help you decide which low-mileage vehicle is best for you. It would also be a good idea to research specific makes and models on Edmunds.com and other automotive sites.

Every vehicle we sell at Barrett Motors is AutoCheck Certified by our in-house technicians. It’s been thoroughly inspected and has passed with flying colors, or it wouldn’t be on our lot.
