Pre-owned vehicles sometimes make us think of old clunkers people take home from a dusty old vehicle showroom; but these days that’s not always the case. With the growing popularity of certified pre-owned vehicles program, there is actually a way to find a reliable used car for different price ranges and for a competitive market price. A survey conducted by J. D. Power, a company that conducts automotive consumer behavior analytics, reveals that there are nine pre-owned vehicle models that have the fewest reported problems in the first three years of ownership and that is why a vast majority of customers prefer them. Most of these featured vehicles are available through many certified pre-owned programs across the country. The list includes a wide range of vehicles from sports cars to sedans, cars and trucks and even some luxury models. Here is the list of the most reliable used car you can buy today:

Here are the best used cars to buy in 2021 per body type:
When choosing from two cars with the same year, make and model; the one with a lower mileage usually gets a higher valuation. However, cars with low kms on the odometer does not automatically mean a better deal. A typical driver usually puts on more than 20,000 kms per year. An average ten-year-old car therefore should have around 120,000 kilometers on the odometer. But looking at mileage alone can totally be misleading. For example if a car is driven by constant commuters such as sales representatives, you can expect their pre-owned vehicles to be well-maintained and kept in good repair. Rental cars are also some of the cheapest used cars available in the market. Even though most rental car odometers don’t register a low km, they are typically well-maintained and are generally newer model years; so when they are traded-in they are virtually left unchanged. Some rentals are even bought, maintained and traded-in on the same dealerships.
On the other hand, cars with less than 160,000 kms but have been with four different owners raises some red flags because repair and maintenance records can be difficult to acquire. Furthermore, there are also car owners that don’t drive often and could probably put in only 50,000 kms across a ten-year period. These cars also seem like their bodies are left unchanged, meticulously cleaned, and maintained, perhaps with Crown Detailing in Winnipeg even but since it is not used often it could mean dried-out seals and weakened battery. But that can be addressed and repaired easily. So how many kilomters are too many depends on a lot of factors. But when in doubt, always go for the 20,000-kms per year average and then do an in-depth model research about the car you are planning to purchase.
It is not a bad idea and there are actually quite a number of reasons why it’s good to buy a car that no longer registers a low km on the odometer. High-mileage cars usually come with a lower purchase price. So when you calculate payments you might not even need to apply for financing. Cars with over 160k kms on them also depreciate at a much slower rate. Insurance is also cheaper on these kinds of cars. In addition, the reliability of cars in general are getting better and better. So this means that cars with high mileage on them are more likely to last a long time.
Everyone has different preferences when it comes to buying pre-owned vehicles. Some consider colour, some even the gearbox or for others the fuel type. But the one thing that’s given the most priority is mileage. It is recommended however that it is better to buy a new car with a higher mileage than an older car that registers low mileage on its odometer. This is because car parts especially those made of rubber experience wear and tear over a period of time regardless of the kms recorded. Cars also need to be driven so it lubricates itself over time by burning up carbon build up inside its engine allowing it to last longer. When cars are not driven often, then there are less fluid changes over its lifetime. It is also worthy to consider that cars with higher mileages are much more affordable than its equivalent with low mileage; so purchasing one will actually enable you to save cash on future repairs.
Mileage is one of the most important determining factors for the price of a used vehicle. It usually indicates how much wear and tear has been put on the car so it is therefore logical that a car with more kms will usually be less expensive than the same car with fewer kms on it. Most car parts’ longevity is based on mileage especially if we talk about the engine and suspension as these are parts that often need serious maintenance after thousands of kms on the road. However there are different types of kms put on a preowned vehicle. For example a car driven in the city will show much more wear than a car that’s mostly driven on highways. In addition a car with a dedicated owner will last longer despite the kms, with constant maintenance and upkeep. At the end of the day, the condition of the vehicle is the most important factor when determining whether to purchase a preowned vehicle. A low-mileage vehicle that is not maintained properly may be worse that the one with high mileage but is maintained well. At the end of the day it is still about how previous owners treat their rides.
