Are Cars With A Lot Of Miles (High Mileage) Bad?

Before we get into whether high mileage cars are bad, let’s first discuss when a car is called high mileage.

A car is typically called high mileage if it has put more miles on it than any average car with similar age. The average driver puts on 10,000 to 12,000 miles per year on a car.

Any miles above that are generally considered High Mileage vehicles.   So if a car is 5 years old and has 100,000 miles it would be considered high mileage for the year.

However as a generalised concept, in the used car market, any mileage above the barrier of 100,00 miles is considered a high mileage car.

The common tendency for many used car buyers is to not buy any car above 100,00 miles. 

Although 100,000 miles may look like a lot of miles (which of course, it is), buying a car with over 100,000 miles may not be a bad thing. 

Although cars with a lot of miles in them are more likely to have issues than similar cars with lower miles, often you can get a good deal on used cars with higher miles.
