Are you thinking about buying an Orlando used car for your next ride? If you are, you need to do a bit of research before you get behind the wheel. One of the big things to consider is the mileage – how much mileage is going to be OK on your Orlando used car? What limits are you going to set before you start shopping? We’re giving you a guide to help you decide where your cutoff point should be!

Used car mileage should be a deciding factor in your purchase!

The first thing to think about in terms of used car mileage is to CHECK it before you hit the road. You’ll want to check the mileage on the odometer, and then also compare it to what’s on the free CarFax report that our dealership offers. Make sure they match before you sign the dotted line. Let Toyota of Clermont give you peace of mind that things are accurate!

The first used car mileage point to think about is 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Around this mileage point, your ride will need more than just routine Orlando car maintenance – it typically needs a tire rotation AND alignment, oil filter change, and other services that you don’t typically need before this point. If you’re at this mileage point, you might want to try and work this service into the deal for the Orlando used car you’re thinking about purchasing!

The next mileage point to consider on a used car in Orlando is the 60,000 to 70,000 mile mark. At this point in the car’s life, it’s getting a little bit older and subsequently, needs a bit more extensive service to keep things up and running efficiently. This is usually the point you need a new timing belt, which can be a big expense. If the timing belt breaks, you can do a lot of damage under the hood and run up pricey repair bills. But you’re not stuck in between a rock and a hard place – negotiate this service into the deal before you buy an Orlando used car!

Let Toyota of Clermont help you purchase the right ride for you!

The final mileage point to consider when shopping for a used car in Orlando is the 100,000 mile marker. Now, we’re not saying old cars are unreliable or unwise purchases. However, this point is typically when resale value takes a hard downturn, and you start seeing that your ride needs more and more Orlando car maintenance to keep it in good shape. See if your budget will allow for this (because remember, that’s something you want to factor into overall expenses!)
