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.

There’s nothing more frustrating than getting into your car and it won’t start. The engine just won’t turn over. Is it the battery? Is your starter going out—again? Maybe it’s something in the ignition.
