How Many Miles Should A Used SUV Have?

On average, most vehicles drive between 10,000 and 12,000 miles a year. Thus, most used SUVs near you may have racked up quite a few miles over time. With this being said, if you are in the market for a used SUV for sale, you may be wondering how many miles a used SUV should have before it isnít worth it anymore.

Fortunately, we at USA-1 have an excellent grasp of what to look for when it comes to an SUVís mileage and how mileage can impact a used SUVís lifespan. Because of this, we have assembled a list below that describes some information about used SUV mileage.

1. Maximum Mileage

With any used car for sale in Elkhart or anywhere else, it can be risky to purchase a vehicle with over 100,000 miles. Even if a used SUV for sale with over 100,000 miles has been well-maintained, it may end up costing more in future repairs than the vehicle itself. Hence, you should strive to search for something with 100,000 miles or less.

2. Lifespan Depends On Manufacturer

Despite the fact that most used SUVs near you can be a risky purchase after 100,000 miles, you should note that some auto brands manufacture their SUVs to last over 200,000 miles. For this reason, you should always research every used SUV for sale that interests you, checking to see if they have been built for higher-than-average mileage.

3. Regular Maintenance Extends Car Life

If you would like to extend the life of any vehicle, including a used SUV near you, proper maintenance is one of the best things you can do. This is the reason that the vehicles you see at most car lots near you will be clean and in good shape. In servicing and maintaining a vehicle, there are a few essential tasks that you can have done at a mechanic, or you can learn these tasks yourself. If you take a look below, the most common maintenance procedures can be seen:

  • Maintain auto fluids
  • Inspect brakes and suspension
  • Assess tires regularly, replacing and rotating when necessary
  • Check engine belts
  • Clean vehicle when needed

4. Inspect Every Used SUV, No Matter Mileage

Before you decide on a used SUV for sale near you, it is wise to first inspect it, as there may be some things that have gone unnoticed. Even if a vehicle has little mileage, it may still have issues. Therefore, it is always good to check a car before taking it on a test drive. If you browse the following list, you can see what to check for while inspecting vehicles at a dealership:

  • Exterior: Rust, corrosion, or body damage
  • Interior: Damage and stains
  • Signal lights: Ensure proper functioning
  • Underside and engine: Check for damage

5. Test Drive

Whether you are shopping with USA-1ís Elkhart used car dealer or any other SUV dealership, the most important part of your visit will be test-driving. During a test drive, you will be able to get an understanding of the handling of every SUV you want. There are a few different things you should observe during your test drive, which can be seen listed below:

  • Braking and acceleration: Responsiveness
  • Suspension: Smooth ride
  • Cabin noise: Quiet and comfortable interior
  • Safety: Test safety features

After your test drive, you can compare each SUV to determine the best option for you.

6. Vehicle History Report

The final factor to consider when deciding on a used SUV is the history report. As mentioned above, maintenance is a significant aspect of keeping a vehicle alive. A vehicleís history report describes how a vehicle has been maintained. Thus, an SUV that has been maintained poorly would be a bad investment no matter its mileage, while a well-maintained SUV with a lot of miles may still run perfectly. Because of this, you should always ensure that you view a vehicleís history report before making a final decision.
