Have you ever been car shopping, hunting for that perfect budget-friendly car, when you suddenly find the right vehicle at the right price, only to notice that the car has outrageous mileage? Yeah, we get the feeling, and many of our customers have had similar experiences before seeing us at Gulf Coast Auto Brokers.
Sure, cheap high-mileage vehicles may be right for some drivers, but we know that most of our customers around Sarasota need that right combination of affordability and reliability, meaning we work hard to keep our inventory stocked full with used cars that have under 100,000 miles.
Many potential used car buyers want to know what mileage is considered too high. Honestly, there isn’t exactly a right answer here, as it will depend on what a person is willing to spend on a vehicle and what they need the vehicle for. After all, if you’re paying $400 for a hunk of junk that you plan to run to work and back until it can’t run anymore, then mileage probably isn’t a concern.
But, for the average buyer, we like to use the 100,000 mark as a significant milestone. Anything under that and you’re not likely to run into anything too wild in terms of repairs, so upkeep will be required on any vehicle as it ages. With vehicles that have over 100,000 miles, considering the quality of today’s vehicles, you still don’t have to worry about your car falling apart any day soon, but you may start to see some more repairs and necessary replacement of parts after the 100,000 mile point.
We understand the importance of a reliable vehicle here at Gulf Coast Auto Brokers, so no matter how many miles the car you buy from us has, you can rest assured that we’ve done our due diligence to make sure it is fit for the road for miles to come. But, all vehicles have their breaking point, so for that extra confidence be sure to browse our large selection of low mileage used vehicles. Whether you’re looking for something with fewer than 100,000 miles or 50,000 miles, we have plenty of options for you to choose from.
