Get a Great Car Deal when Buying High Mileage Used Cars

By Ellsworth Mciltrot Subscribe to RSS | May 14th 2012 | Views:

Car buyers looking to purchase a used vehicle usually have a preconceived notion that the lower the miles on the odometer, the better. They often ignore what may be considered as well-driven and well-cared for cars because they had too many miles on them. For them, the idea is to find a pre-owned car with virtually no miles; yet the low mileage vehicle may well be their worst automobile purchase.

Low miles can have negative effects on a car, especially its engine. Usually, low miles mean short trips. Perhaps the previous owner only drove his vehicle to go to the supermarket, school or church. If this is so, then the engine rarely has a chance to fully warm up.

The Trouble with Low Mileage Car.

An engine that doesn’t fully warm up means that its engine oil is not warmed enough, as well. Engine oils not able to reach the ideal temperature won’t be able to properly flow, spread and lubricate the engine. If the engine is not fully warmed up, it won’t be able to boil off any water vapor that seeped to your crankcase, and will result to cold starts.

On top of that, since the car is not used often, and has only spent a few miles on the road, it’s possible that the previous owner believed his car needed less maintenance and oil changes. This lack of use and maintenance can cause the car’s components to deteriorate. A lot of this deterioration will be in areas that are not readily visible or accessible.

Tips on Buying High Mileage Cars

The best high mileage used cars in Edmonton are the ones that were made within the last decade. Used cars of recent makes are great deals because they are known for the low maintenance they require even after being driven 200,000 miles. You should test drive any vehicle before you buy it. Make sure it accelerates properly and it’s safe to drive on the road.

Another tip in buying high mileage used cars in Edmonton is to look for cars known for their durability and dependability. It will be easy to find a Toyota or a Hyundai in good condition even if the car has high odometer readout. Try to look for higher end models: previous owners of these more expensive models often invest in maintaining them in top condition.

Have a professional mechanic look at it as well. This might set you back around a hundred dollars, but it will keep you from making a costly mistake. For more tips on how to buy used Edmonton cars with high mileage, click to
