What to Look for in High-Mileage Used Cars
There are many benefits to purchasing a used car, but you want to make sure it’s the best used car for your driving needs and your budget. Here are a few things you’ll want to inspect and explore when test-driving high mileage used cars:
Steering, Stopping, and Starting
As with any vehicle test drive, you always want to check out a vehicle’s acceleration, braking, and responsiveness when steering. Consider the type of driving you do to determine if the vehicle can keep up with your needs.
Rust can be expensive and time-consuming to fix. While a little rust may not be a big problem, if you notice that large sections of a vehicle have indications of rust, you’ll want to move onto a different ride.
Ford tires can tell you a lot about how a vehicle what driven. If the wear is uneven, it may be an indication of an alignment issue and worn or cracked tires can speak to how the overall car was cared for.
Entertainment and Interior Systems
When purchasing a pre-owned vehicle, particularly one with a high mileage, you want to check out interior features that may have gotten a lot of use, including entertainment, safety, and comfort programming.
