I was looking for a used car to buy and I saw a 2008 Chrysler Sebring LX that's just in my price range. It doesn't have any major problems according to the history report. It's mileage, however is about 162,000 miles. Is that too many miles to consider buying. It is selling for $2999.

    With your budget, you're looking at the bottom of the market. Bottom of the market cars are going to have miles on the odometer, and that's just a cold hard fact.

    Mileage is one factor, and it's important, but it's not the factor. While there are no guarantees even when you buy a new car, a car with lots of well maintained and properly driven miles is a better bet than a car with low mileage that was abused or neglected. That's why mileage is only one factor.

    A Chrysler Sebring would be a poor choice even if it was brand new and had zero miles. It is not made anymore. Why? It was very low quality and unreliable. When people found out about it, sales dropped like a rock. So now the only ones left are being sold to people who don't know any better.

  3. Never

    For $3000, you might have to get high mileage but you don't have to buy a Chrysler.

    About 5 months ago I sold my trusty 94 Buick Century with 89,000 miles and a broken AC. (It was going to cost more than $200-300+ to fix the air) It also had a cracked windshield but it didn't leak.

    It took me about 6 weeks to sell it despite the miles. I got $1595.

    It was in above avg shape and it had way below avg miles.

    That car will be running for another 80,000 miles easy.

    But it was time to upgrade for me.

    You might have to beat a lot of bushes but you might find someone like me who upgraded and wants a fair price for their old trustworthy car.

    You don't find deals like that at dealers because they have high overhead.

    Best you can hope for at a dealer is a $1500 wholesale unit. Something you could get for roughly $2250 from a private party.

    A Chrysler Sebring would be a poor choice with only 2000 miles on it. WELL known as one of the worst cars on the road.
