I always buy high mileage cars because I know that the car has mostly been driven on highways for most of it's life. My first car was a 98 Civic with 210k miles and added 16k miles within 2 years. My next car was a 02 330ci with 158k miles and added 44k miles within 2 years. My current car is a 09 Challenger. Brought it last year with 123k miles on it and it now has 140k miles on it and it still rides smoothly.

My 2001 toyoda corolla had 219,000 thousand miles on it. Now it has about 230,000 and we've only spent 1,500 on it, 600 of that was getting it painted. The car looks great on the inside and outside and runs great 👍

Hi thanks for this video. Gave me some understanding about high mileage. I'm in the market for a used Mazda Cx5. One is a 2014 with 120kms on the clock, the other is a 2016 with 180kms Highway on the clock. The one with the higher mileage has the better kept interior despite its KMs. Both are first owner. I would not base my decision purely on your opinion, but would like to know if you prefer a newer car with higher mileage or slightly older but lower mileage? Thanks! Jordan

I have 5 cars : a 2006 Honda odyssey 237k, 2005 Honda accord 213k, 2009 Nissan versa 154k, 2002 chevrolet avalanche 216k and 2013 chevrolet malibu 138k. All the cars running perfectly, not a single light on the dash boards, I do all the maintenance and basic mechanics myself, they've been with me for the last 4 to 6 years. If something mayor comes up, I'll just buy another used high mileage car for around $3,000, and the other goes to the junk yard.

Mileage doesn't hurt a car anywhere near as much as poor maintenance. Very few people actually keep up proper routine maintenance on a vehicle.

Another reason to buy a car with high mileage: if you have the ability to work on the car yourself. For example, the timing belt and water pump replacement that cost $750 would have only cost around $100 if you were able to do the work yourself.

Nice job. If you're trying to get a channel established, I hope you do well. One point you overlooked - can potential buyer perform DIY repairs? If yes, buying the cheap junker might be a safe bet if the car is cheap enough. Paying for a clutch kit is a lot cheaper than having someone replace your clutch. But as you pointed out, it is generally better to spend a little more to get the better car than to 'restore' the cheap one. I bought a 25 year old Geo Metro this year with ~ 215K miles and was willing to pay 'top dollar' because it was a one owner car, had not been in accidents and was obviously loved. It runs like a top and I have had no regrets yet. But I sleep well knowing it's not my primary means of transportation.

Hi are vee, great point. You can save a lot of money if you are willing to get your hands dirty. There are youtube videos that show how to repair most items, which is great for us DIYers. 25 year old Geo Metro, that's impressive! They last a very long time as long as they don't rust out. Thanks for the comments.

I’ve owned Honda accords,CRV & civics over last 25 yrs manual & automatics & I loved everyone of them. Never had any major issues & all had high mileage; I put several miles on them myself.. Last year I bought an 07 4Runner SR5, it now has 215K. Last year I had new water pump & timing belt changed. I absolutely love it!! Has a V8

I've got a 06 dodge stratus sxt with 193,500 for $550. Was well maintained. The only thing that needs done is a oil change new spark plugs and valve cover gaskets. The only thing that's wrong with the body is someone sideswiped the driver's side. But the doors still open

If you are mechanically inclined and can do the repairs yourself, it wouldn’t be a $750 timing belt and water pump repair. Try under $100 for those parts to be more accurate

I would stick with Honda, Toyota, Acuras, but recently test drove couple Honda CRV over 100k they dont seem to drive well but a 2012 crv with 159k drove like a charm. but im glad cars are lasting longer however i prefer lower mileage cars as i drive far from work i need reliable car.

So, I have a 2005 Honda Accord EX-L V6 with 196k miles on it. I will need to replace two motor mounts and the timing belt/water pump soon, all for around 2k. I have a friend who will buy it for 2500 as is. Do you think it's worth it to invest the 2k in it and try to make it to 300k? What's your experience with the V6 from that generation? I have thankfully not had many problems and it is running well.

I bought a 1 owner, 2003 Toyota Rav4, manual transmission with 153,000 miles. The carfax was very detailed in the service history with regular oil changes. Before I bought it the dealership replaced the head gasket of all things, the power steering pump, and VVT solenoid. Brakes are good, tires are newer, and it runs really well. I paid $3500 for it, KBB had the fair price around $4500. So far so good with it! Did I do well and is there anything that you know of that I should look out for with this particular make and model? Thanks

If they have a history of head gasket problems, be sure to keep and eye on the temp. NEVER drive a car that is overheating. Obviously watch the exhaust and appearance of the oil for evidence of head gasket leaking. If it happens again, get rid of it, the heads are probably warped, cracked or block cracked.

Hi Tom, it sounds like a decent car. Typically manual transmissions will last a long time. The most common issue with the '03 is with the transmission, but besides that overall complaints are low. Also, checkout the info on the '04 Rav4 as there were a few issues with the head gasket that wasn't reported on the '03. There are also a few people that had issues with oil sludge, but it is good that you have the maintenance history. Make sure to change your oil often. Hope that helps. www.carcomplaints.com/Toyota/RAV4/2003/

Having multiple owners is not necessarily bad for a car. Usually every new owner spend some money on the car when the buy it, so chances are a car that had had multiple owners can be in a very good condition.

Multiple owners a good car? Consider each owner hates the car and after throwing money on it, sold it at lost... how's that?

Thanks for the comment Arnaldo. You are right in that it a new owner will likely spend some money when they get the new car. What I have found is that more often than not, the ownership records do not pass as easily when there are multiple owners. Having less owners may help increase the chances of knowing the history of the vehicle. Also, when there are several owners, it makes me question whether or not this is a good vehicle. Why are there so many owners? I looked at a Highlander for my wife, and it was cheap. But it was a fairly new vehicle with 70k miles and already had three owners. That raised a red flag for me. It turns out it wasn't an AWD vehicle and made me wonder if people regretted buying it in a snow state without AWD. And some people will also spend money to get there car in selling condition, like the guy in my Lexus video did. ;-) trshow.info/watch/TBGqLJ9UbRs/video.html

There are a lot of things that he should have mentioned, you need to know the car your buying, just cause a car is known to be reliable doesent mean it'll last forever. The most important thing is maintinace both what has been done to it and what you will do to it

Hi Great video about high mileage cars dude. I'm planning to move to the USA this year and I really need to buy a cheap car. Here in Brazil cars with more than 100k KM (62k miles) often it's not a good deal. I'm looking for between 2 to 3k bucks and I found a lot of with 150 - 200k miles is it a good deal? Where should I look for a good deal? Facebook, resaler,

You really have to research the year, make and model of the car you want to buy. Car Complaints and Edmund's help with that. Toyotas and Hondas arent as reliable as they used be. The mid 2000s saw oil consumption and transmission issues. Suburus for some people last a long time but many others have had chronic head gasket issues. Sometimes you can do all the research you can and have a mechanic inspect it and still have a major repair two weeks after buying. Used cars are a gamble. Is it better to lease a new car? They come sometimes with free maintenance. At the end of the lease you bring it back and not worry about repairs.
CarsThatLast

Good points Jetthead18. You are correct, that Honda's, Toyota's, and Subaru's can have their issues as well. That's the purpose of my channel is to help people determine what is a good used car and what is not. ie. which cars last the longest? :-) I've done the leasing route as well, as it can be affordable and a way to drive a brand new car. But both times I leased I regretted it because I felt stuck and had issues turning the car in. But that was just me, and other people may have better luck. Thanks for the comment.

So I want a 2007-2011 dodge Dakota crew cab. At 150k+ miles the cheapest I've seen this truck is for $7000. Is that an ok mileage for that particular truck assuming clean title and maintenance is up to date? Assuming these two things are in good standing is it ok for that price for that mileage? How many miles does this particular truck last with proper maintenance?

I haven't put a dime into it. When my previous cars died between 3-5 years I simply junk them. No financing. No significant expenditures. A car or truck is just a tool for me. I do not attach any other significant to them. I calculate I've owned 20 vehicles in my life.

Concerns: Front end Engine/timing belt LIFETIME transaxle oil (Saturns). I own one. If you buy beater that needs $1 000.00 in repairs, junk it. Take your loss (that's considering a $500-$1,000 beater like I've ALWAYS bought). Oneexction: I bought a one ton for $3,500.00 for cousin's new farm. I had rebuilt tranny put in $1700.00. Plus new wires, electrical nearly everything. Sold it for $400.00. I was 400 miles away so couldn't diagnose it. (One rotten fuel line)! Cousin said buyer couldn't tow it away unless he gave him $400.00 cash. Ex - friend cousin kept the $400.00. Total loss - $5,000.00. Did not follow yours and my rules.

Bought a Car-Fax, 1 owner 2006 Toyota Camry with 186 K from a Toyota dealership in 2016. Original owner drove it off the Dealer lot in '06, brought it in every 5 k miles for recommended dealer servicing for 10 yrs. In '16 came back and traded it in for a new '16. That's when I got it. I had to replace the Cat-Converter 10,000 miles after purchase and another Cat after 150,000 more miles. Now, 09-2018, it has 399,000 miles on it - mostly highway miles. I've serviced it every 5,000, replaced tires twice, cabin air filter, etc... done all the work myself to save $$$ and it's still running like a sewing machine. 1- Negative - it was burning .5 qts of oil in-between 5,000 mile oil changes when I got it, now it's burning a little over 2 qts. It's a Japanese manufactured Toy, and I read the valve stem guides go out on those at 300,000 miles causing them to burn more oil, but they go out at 100,000 on North American manufactured Toyotas. Your friends daughter may not have kept an eye on the oil, hence the engine blowing up with such low miles, or, it wasn't maintained by the previous owner.

I thought the UK was expensive for car repairs and servicing but $750 for a timing belt & water pump on a honda is daylight robbery.

I have 3 older Ford full size cars, which combined are far less expensive than 1 new car. Gas, insurance, repairs, and yearly tags, and I'm still ahead financially. As long as one of them gets me to and from work each day, then I'm a happy camper! '65 Galaxie, '86 Crown Vic, and an '08 Town Car.

I'm considering purchasing a 2013 Lincoln MKX with 162,000 for $7,000. It had 2 previous owners total, average of approx 23,000 annual miles. Has clean Carfax with regular maintenance records. The vehicle is GORGEOUS and immaculate! It looks brand new inside and out, is loaded with ALL premium upgrade features (panoramic moon roof, premium sound system, navigation system, heated steering wheel, multi-color changeable ambient lighting. Plus all the standard luxury features...perforated leather seats, heated seats, remote start, usb ports, aux input jacks, SD memory card, etc. I am so conflicted on what to do! I absolutely LOVE the vehicle but I am soooo leery about the high miles. Thanks in advance! :)

Overall the '08 TSX has proven very reliable and well liked. In the 2018 auto issue of Consumer Reports, they ranked the '06 TSX as the most reliable luxury compact car, which is the same as the '08 but didn't fit their article. While I don't give advice on particular cars, the an '08 TSX is one I would definitely consider for my own garage. Here's a helpful link I found for common complaints. acurazine.com/how-tos/a/acura-tsx-2004-2008-common-problems-424145

5 reason why NOT to buy a high milage car.... 1: You don't know the maintenance records of this car.... Did they change the oil every 5K miles..?? every 10K miles or at all...???? Do you know what happens to oil when you dont change it and just keep running it..?? GOOGLE THAT 2: When was the last time they flushed the cooling system...??? IF they ever did...??? Do you know what happens to coolant if you never change or dont change it enough...?? GOOGLE THAT 3: did they change the transmission fluid before 50k miles...?? If never, that tranny is a ticking time bomb.. GOOGLE THAT 4: where there any MAJOR accidents that they never claimed and had BOBS auto body do the repairs and how good were the repairs.. 5: does the car have a rebuilt title.... Google that ONLY 1 good reason to buy a high mileage car.... the cheap PRICE

Fox-E (Bonzai) I hate to break it to you but there is no transmission fluid that will outlive a car they are all made of oil and they all break down and they all get contaminated most OEMs are Specking the same fluid that was used in transmissions what it needs to be changed and now the same fluid inspect for lifetime but there’s nothing different about the fluid so why is it all of a sudden lasting forever?

The guy in the video have good tips why to buy a high-mileage car and you got real good tips to. I have an old 3 Acura TL with 300,000 miles I never change the oil at 5000 always win is recommended at 7500when I bought that car off the showroom floor I knew I was taking a gamble because it had bad transmissions I've always change the transmission oil at 40,000 miles and like I have had no major problems with it your minor wear and tear the car still looks brand new inside and out but I adjust the valves every hundred thousand miles I change the plugs every eighty to a hundred thousand miles yes and also the radiator even though it calls for a hundred and fifty thousand I change it at a hundred as well as the timing chain and the water pump the car's been good to me and I will continue to drive it until it dies actually my son will be driving it soon.

It's actually not a good idea to flush the coolant or change the transmission fluid on a car with 200k miles. If the fluids look clean then there's no reason to change it. You might create more problems by changing fluids etc

My 03 Accord currently has 273K on it and I'm about to drive 1000 miles back home from college tomorrow. Bought it from the original owner with full service history. After my most recent inspection at a Honda dealership the paper said word for word: "NPF, No Problems Found, nothing recommended. Car looks brand new." Take care of your cars and they'll do the same for you, because I've had to do nothing but preventative maintenance.

CarsThatLast

Lexus has typically been very reliable. I've had many comments especially from viewers about the LS 400 - 430 about how amazing their LS's are. But that is a bigger car. I don't typically recommend specific cars since I cannot view or inspect them, and don't know what your preferences are. However, in general I find that the Lexus ES 300 and ES 330 seem to be good values. Essentially it's a Camry with more bells and whistles. And if you don't want the bells and whistles, the Toyota Camry is usually a reliable and affordable car. I might suggest viewing my video on the Top 5 Cars That Last 300,000 miles. The cars featured are also worth checking out. trshow.info/watch/6OSvyORLZ24/video.html

What crap!!! Look at tge cars that have exceeded 1 million miles-a massive number of European cars. Such a lot of bollocks spoken here-it not the mileage that matters, but how the mileage has been covered. Long drives will rid the oil and exhaust systems of condensation. Regular oil changes (more frequent if car is used on short journies where it does not get up to temperature fully) using a good brand of oil is key. As is treating the car gently before giving it any high revs. I had a Ford Escort with 400,000 miles on the clock that was driven weekly between London and Aberdeen. A Lexus LS 400 with 325,000 on it that was immaculate inside and out, and even a bike, a GSX-R750 that was on 180,000 miles before it was obliterated in a crash with a myopic pickup driver. Still on original exhaust and clutch. And don't discount a car with dented doors/panels. Insurance companies won't repair old cars, so as long as mechanically sound and with no rot or rust, who GAF what it looks like. Better still, don't buy them, and leave the way clear for me
