Used Cars: What To Pay Attention To

While you can limit your search to the low mileage used cars for sale at Cadillac of Beverly Hills, you’ll find that there can actually be advantages to choosing a used car with more miles on the odometer. What is considered high mileage for a used car? As stated above, 100,000 miles is typically the cut off point for most used car shoppers, although many will avoid any car that has 80,000 or more miles on it. If you’re in the market for a dependable used car in the Sherman Oaks-area, there are some factors other than mileage to look at. These factors include:

  • How many owners has the vehicle had? – A vehicle that has gone through many owners will have suffered more stress and strain than a car that has had a single owner.
  • What type of climate has the car been driven in? – A vehicle that has been primarily driven in a region that experiences extreme temperature changes will show more wear and tear mechanically, as well as to the interior and exterior.
  • Has the vehicle been kept up to date with scheduled maintenance? – A high-mileage vehicle that has been taken well care of and has received regular oil changes and other routine maintenance can have a longer lifespan than a low-mileage car that has been neglected.
  • Has the vehicle been driven mostly on the highway or on city streets? – Highway driving is less stressful on the vehicle, because there isn’t as much stop-and-go traffic as you’ll encounter on city streets.
  • Has the vehicle been in an accident? – If the car has been involved in a collision, it could have suffered structural damage that may not be readily apparent.
