2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Parked

Financing used cars have become a popular alternative to new cars for car shoppers who are looking to upgrade their vehicles. Due to this, many New Orleans-area car shoppers wonder what is good mileage on a used car? 

Many experts suggest that you stay away from vehicles with more than 100,000 miles but many cars today are built to run efficiently past this mileage point. If you want to know more about good mileage for used cars, use this helpful guide to help you make a better decision. 

Find Out About the Vehicle’s History 

On average, drivers put 10,000 miles on their cars. You can see how the car was used by calculating the model year and how many miles it currently has. That being said, a car can get worn faster on city streets than on open highways. So when you’re shopping for used cars and you want to know if the car you’re interested in has good mileage for a used car, consider the following:


Vehicles that have been driven in warm and dry climates will have undergone less stress than those driven in cold and wet environments.


Most Kenner-area dealerships do their diagnostics and repairs before putting used cars on the lots. But, having a specialist inspect the used vehicle is a safe-assured way to find any problems with the vehicle’s motor and other functions.

Maintenance History

A vehicle that’s been serviced regularly runs much better than one whose maintenance has been delayed. You can see the vehicle’s maintenance history and know more about how often the vehicle was maintained.
