The Importance of Mileage

For many individuals, price is the greatest factor when deciding which used automobile to purchase. This, however, may be a misleading statistic on which to base a used car purchase. In many cases, the most important number assigned to a used car is how many miles are on it.

In general, mileage can indicate how long an individual can expect a used vehicle to continue running without major problems. If you or someone you love is in the market for a great used car, contact one of the 11 Austin used car dealers of Chapman Motor Sales or browse our combined online inventory.

What Mileage Determines

In general, automobiles are expected to average 10,000 to 12,000 miles per year. With this amount of usage as well as with regular maintenance, cars are expected to have a longer life than those that are driven more miles and do not receive proper maintenance.

It is important to note that it is difficult to determine exactly how long a car will last, as other conditions may apply in determining its lifespan. However, individuals wishing to purchase used cars may be able to get a better idea of a car’s remaining lifespan based on the average number of miles the car has been driven each year.
