Is it OK to buy a used car with more than 100k miles?
There’s nothing wrong with being cautious while purchasing a used car. You want to make sure you’re getting a dependable used car that won’t end up costing you more than it is worth to keep on the road. Of course, we’re all looking for value in a good deal when shopping for a used car. There’s a certain place some people are afraid to look when looking for an affordable used car and that’s the used cars with more than 100k miles.
You can get a lot of value from a used car with more than 100k miles on it because the price tag will drop considerably once the odometer rolls over to six figures. And nowadays, cars are built to last a long time, so 100k miles on a car isn’t what it used to be. A car that’s been well maintained and taken care of can run like it’s aging relatively slowly rather than in dog years.
