What to consider when checking the milage on a used car.
"What mileage is OK for a used car
In general, I would not recommend purchasing a car with a very high mileage, for example, 250,000 km (155,000 miles) and higher would be considered very high. However, "low mileage" does not necessarily mean it's going to be a "good car". Be aware of cars that may have undergone restoration after a serious accident or cars that haven't been property maintained, or cars that may have had their odometer rolled back - nowadays they can easily 'fix' even electronic odometers. Again, checking a car history records will certainly help to avoid those lemons with "fixed" odometer.
When considering the 'mileage' count, it simply means that when choosing a car whether it has 60,000 or 80,000, it is not as important as the fact that it was well maintained and accident-free."

How to get more milage from the car you buy.
"If you want to extend the life of your vehicle, at the
beginning of each month, have the engine oil level checked
to make certain that it is at the full-level mark on the dipstick.
Buying two quarts of oil that are on sale and keeping it in the
trunk, will enable you to avoid getting stuck paying three times
what the oil should cost. Be certain to only use the type of oil
and other fluids as specified in the vehicle owner's manual."
