How Long Should a Car Last?

You are browsing through a vast number of used cars Van for sale in offered by private owners and certified car dealers around the Philippines because you have decided it's time to drive your own car! As you look at all the options, even if you have a particular model in your mind, you start to get confused and overwhelmed.

Which one should you choose? Should you go for the 10-year-old but affordable one? Or should you opt for the one nearer to the current year but is more expensive?

Don't fret! Philkotse.com is here to provide you information about how long should a vehicle last. This way, you can decide better how old a car should you consider “okay” to purchase.

The Mileage

If you sit in the front seat of the car, especially the driver's side, you'll see a lot of meters right in front of you. They all correspond to different items, and one of which is for the car's mileage. This is the so-called odometer, and you'll identify it because of the units km/hr (MPH).

In the odometer, you will see a set of numbers on a small screen, and that is the car's mileage. Mileage is the specific distance the vehicle had traveled from the time it was first driven. This does not indicate though whether it was used for long-distance travels or regular, short-distance travels. Nonetheless, it indicates how much the car has been used.

1. The 90s Models

Second-hand vehicles for sale manufactured in the 90s usually have a shorter lifespan as compared to the newer ones. That is owed to the fact that the manufacturing process of the parts is more technologically advanced today. Similarly, newer cars have more features for safety and reliability.

On that note, experts say that these cars should only last from about 10,000 to 12,000 kilometers per year. Meaning, you shouldn't buy a 90s model beyond that mileage, unless it will just be part of your collection and not for traveling.

2. The After-90s Models

Most vehicles designed and manufactured after the 1990s have parts which are quite better than the earlier models. That is because of the improvement not just in the parts' manufacturing process but also of innovative car testing techniques.

With that in mind, when looking for vehicles that are manufactured after the 90s, the odometer should have a mileage reading of 24,000 kilometers per year.

A Quick Note

Mileage can give you an overview of the wear and tear of the car. Yes, it is not directly related to the unit's age, but this is one of the essential things mechanics and experts look at whether or not they will give the car a thumbs up.

With that being said, the odometer can be tweaked, and let's be honest; some sellers will do anything just to close a deal. As such, you may use a modern tool for checking the odometer or contact a trusted mechanic to accompany you when checking out a car personally.

Conclusion

Although mileage does not really tell you how old a car is, it is one of the best indicators. Do note though that you should also consider whether or not the vehicle has been maintained well or not.

Sometimes, a car with higher mileage is better than the one with a lower mileage simply because the other has been maintained regularly. So, when you ask how long should a car last, that would be the mileage with consideration of how well it was taken care of.

We hope you find the right aged vehicle for you and your loved ones soon!
