What to Look for In High-Mileage Used Cars


Shopping for a used Toyota car is a great option for some drivers. You can save money and you know that Toyota cars are known for their reliability. However, we still understand that drivers can be wary of used vehicles that have high mileage. At Keyes Toyota, we'll tell you how to evaluate high-mileage used cars and find one that you can depend on.

What to Look For

When you're thinking about purchasing a used car with a lot of miles on the odometer, you should see if you can secure a history report. This can give you a ton of information about the vehicle. You'll know how many owners it had and where the car has been driven. You'll learn if the car was in an accident or damaged in another way, like in a flood.

This can help you figure out if a vehicle may still have a long life ahead of it. A car that was owned for a long time by one owner was probably well cared for. Knowing whether a vehicle was driven in colder climates can help you prioritize certain types of maintenance at our Toyota service center.

Speaking of service, any information you can get about the maintenance done on a high-mileage used car can help you make the right decision. A vehicle that has had its oil changed in a timely manner and taken in at different service milestones could still be in great shape despite higher numbers on the odometer.

Finally, look into the maintenance schedule for this used car. Based on its age and mileage, are there any big repairs or services needed soon after you buy it? Knowing about what kind of care your used Toyota vehicle will need can help you better budget for your pre-owned car.
