What is considered high mileage for a car?
Many peope consider 100K +
Although if regular oil changes were given since manufacture, and not many city stop starts are made, then 100K miles isn't too much to worry about.
If this car was serviced regularly and taken care of as it should have been then no this is not high mileage. But if this car was neglected and the oil/filter was not changed regularly then this could be considered high mileage. Most cars built within the last 15 years can easily reach 200,000 miles with no major repairs if they are serviced regularly. So, the bottom line is that it depends entirely on how…
Whether a car is considered new or used is more a legal distinction than a mileage distinction. A new car is considered used as soon as it is sold by the dealer even if it only has 3 or 4 miles on it. As such, the price of a very low-mileage used vehicle is substantial less than a new vehicle which is why I would never buy a new vehicle.
I assume "High mileage oil" refers to oil that does not need to be changed for a "high mileage". What might be called "long life oil". The point is not that it's better, or worse, for the car. The point is that it lasts longer. This means it does not need to be changed as often. This means the car will use less oil during it's life, generating less toxic waste (Used engine oil is…
Is it better to buy an older better reviewed car with higher mileage or a lesser reviewed new car with lower mileage?
Everything is prone to wear-and-tear (which is what high mileage represents), but the engine and transmission are what you have to worry about the most if you're looking at a high-mileage car. Check to make sure rust hasn't eaten away too significantly either if you live in one of the snowey states.
the things that should be considered when pricing your used car are the following: Manufacturer, Model, year it was made, the mileage if it's high or low, the condition of car or if it has been involve in any accident this will determine how much is the car. to know more you could go to free car classifieds on the net to compare used car prices. i had put a link hope this would help…
Not unless the engine using it was specifically designed for it. Gas mileage takes many things into consideration, and if a car is designed to use standard octane gas, the use of high octane gas will not increase the car's mileage - it is just a way of figuratively blowing dollar bills out of the tailpipe.
