What is too much mileage on a used car?

That depends. The average mileage driven of a regular vehicle should be around 15,000 to 20,000 kilometres yearly, so be sure to find out the ratio of age to kilometres driven. If it exceeds the average, then you will probably have a higher mileage used vehicle. There are other factors to consider besides its mileage, such as make and model, engine type, and maintenance performed.

How many kilometres is too many for a used car?

It mostly depends on the type of vehicle you are looking to purchase since some makes and models last much longer than others. For example, you might find a low mileage used vehicle that runs great but could have rust due to being parked for too long. You will want to compare the age of the vehicle to its mileage, and if it has driven around 15,000 to 20,000 kilometres per year, then it is a good sign that the vehicle was driven the average amount expected.

How many kilometres are good for a car?

Kilometres are only a single factor of many when determining if a used car is good, so be sure to check the maintenance history and compare it to the vehicle's mileage. A higher mileage vehicle with up-to-date maintenance is a better option than a low mileage vehicle with questionable maintenance history.

Is 100,000 km good for a used car?

Around 100,000 kilometres on the odometer is generally a good amount of mileage for vehicles around five to six years old. However, you might find used vehicles much older with that amount of kilometres, so be sure that maintenance was taken care of during its lifespan.
