According to Time Magazine, the average mileage driven for a vehicle in the United States is 15,000 miles. A 2002-model vehicle is almost 14 years old, as of 2015, so an average mileage on such a vehicle is 210,000 miles.
According to Cars.com, mileage should not be evaluated as simply "less mileage is better." While lower mileage indicates less wear and tear on the vehicle and may lead to a higher resale value, it could also mean the vehicle was operated less frequently and regularly, which is often associated with maintenance problems. Additionally, lower-mileage vehicles are usually more desirable, so they can have inflated resale prices.
