What is good mileage for a luxury car? It depends. What is considered high mileage for a used car can vary based on maintenance, driving conditions, the model, and more. Let’s take a closer look.

What is Good Mileage for a Used Car? Consider the Age.

What is considered high mileage for a used car depends on how long it took to rack up those miles. Generally, no more than 12,000 to 15,000 miles should be put on a car in a year’s time. So, a used car that is four years old should have no more than 48,000 to 60,000 miles on it. Otherwise, the engine may have had an excessive amount of wear and tear.

What is Good Mileage for a Used Car? Additional Factors

What is considered high mileage for a used car also depends on things like maintenance, climate, and road conditions all come into play. Consider these factors:

  • Is there a maintenance record?
  • Was the car driven in rough climates?
  • Was the car driven mostly on the highway or in the city? Stop and go traffic in Union City can be brutal on a vehicle.
  • Has the car been in accidents?

What is Good Mileage on a Used Luxury Car?

What is good mileage on a used luxury car? Everything above applies to luxury cars. But luxury cars often have far more features than other cars. So, when checking out a used luxury automobile, check everything: keyless entry, ventilated seats, rear entertainment electronics, power trunk closer, etc.
