Mileage and Age

Unfortunately, vehicles don’t come with a crystal ball to help us see their future. While 100,000 miles can be high for some vehicles, many models can last well over 200,000. It all depends on how the vehicle was used and cared for.

To determine how long your pre-owned car would last you, you need to consider the make and model of the vehicle, and how many miles you drive per year. For example, the Toyota Camry can often last between 200,000-300,000 miles. If you drive 10,000 miles a year and purchase the vehicle at 100,000 miles, this car could last a good 10-20 more years. Of course, there are other factors that come into play when it comes to longevity.


One of the largest indicators of longevity is maintenance. A solid service history is one of the best ways to ensure a vehicle is reliable. Vehicles that have received routine maintenance will often last longer and have fewer problems than cars that skipped service appointments.

When you are considering a pre-owned vehicle, we encourage you to review its vehicle history report. A vehicle history report includes:

  • Accident history
  • Records of repair
  • Service history
  • Type of use
  • Ownership history

Of course, once you purchase the vehicle, it’s important that you take good care of it and schedule routine maintenance to ensure its long life.
