how many miles on a car is too many

Are you thinking about selling your used card, truck or RV but aren’t sure if you sell it or hang onto it for a few more years?

Although you may still love your vehicle, the reality is that as a vehicle gets more miles on it, that car, truck or van will begin to breakdown more often and you may find yourself spending more money to keep that vehicle on the road compared to what you could be spending for a newer vehicle.

How to Know When It’s Time to Get Rid of It

When most vehicles have 60,000+ miles on them they can generally be considered to be drivable for a few more years but when a vehicle has over 100,000 miles on it, this generally is the point in a car, truck or vans life when it should be sold or recycled.

Why?

Besides not running in optimal condition like it did when it was newer, that vehicle will have parts that are going to need replacing as they begin to wear with age.

Some of the parts you can expect to replace on an older vehicle include your sensors, air conditioner motor, alternator, clutch, brake drums and more.

Vehicles Are Not Made to Last Forever

In today’s world a vehicle isn’t made to last forever especially if it’s been known or loved over the years and with technology improving by the year it makes sense to purchase a newer vehicle because this will also ensure that you are able to enjoy a safer, higher quality drive each time you get behind the wheel.
