Hi my customers is planing on purchasing a used 2002 hyundai elantra gt . With 109,000 miles on it, standard options with manual transmission. Vehicle in good condition dealer asking $2500. No warranty as is, carfax 2 owner clean record OBDSTAR X100 PRO.Now my customers wanted to know like what is the maximum mileages limit for korean vehicle and is this vehicle worth buying. any tips suggestion
That's quite heavy usage on the car in my opinion, but I would think that you'd be able to get a pretty good finance rate for the car if you look around that might make the car worth buying relative to the price that you can get it for. Of course you'll need to reassure your customer that the car is in working order and do all your inspections and tests. Do a quick search to see if parts are still easily replaceable too just in case. And good luck!
My math states the car was driven (on average) 7300 miles per year. If the vehicle had proper maintenance done and is THOROUGHLY inspected prior to purchase, it may be worth buying. Due to age, many components may be failing or ready to fail even if operational. Don't want to buy a car just to throw a ton of maintenance.
Ive got a 2010 Elantra with 160000 miles bought it with 106000 on it. Ive always taken it to hyundai for its service and had very little problems with it usually just general maintenance problems like brakes trans flush timing belt oil changes which I always do with synthetic oil at 7500 miles as I drive highway miles to work and back at 84 miles round trip
My 2013 currently has over 231,000 miles and runs like the day it was new.
With good maintenance, you should be able to get a lot more miles. The difficult part is learning how it has been maintained up till now.
