What is Good Mileage for a Used Car?

Used Camry Interior

Las Vegas drivers looking for a used model are often faced with one major question: what is good mileage for a used car? After all, you don’t want to spend your hard-earned money on a vehicle that isn’t going to last you very long. When it comes to finding low-mileage vehicles near Henderson, you’ll want to know what to look for, and that tends to be vehicles that average under 15,000 miles per year.

Is Mileage or Year More Important?

Some vehicle owners will pay more attention to the model year than the amount of miles, but in reality, it’s important to pay attention to both. If you’re looking for a vehicle that averages under 15,000 miles per year, you’ll need to do the calculation based on the year of the vehicle and the current mileage. For instance, if you’re looking at the following vehicles:

  • A 2010 model with 100,000 miles on it
  • A 2016 model with 70,000 miles on it

Most drivers will see the 2016 as the newer model with less miles, but what it really says is that the 2016 model was driven an average of 35,000 miles per year, which is a lot of wear and tear for one vehicle.

Why Mileage Is Important

Mileage affects the value of the vehicle you’re looking at. Used vehicles with lower mileage have been driven less often, and that means it has less wear and tear. Because of this, the model likely has better brake pads and discs as well as belts. This could result in less service needed down the road.

Trading In vs. Selling Yourself

man holding keys

Las Vegas drivers looking to purchase a new vehicle have two different options: trading in their current vehicle at the dealership for credit towards your next purchase, or selling their vehicle privately. While the exact math depends on each individual deal, you’re more likely to get a higher sticker price when selling privately. However, that sticker price doesn’t factor in the additional taxes you’ll pay when selling privately versus trading in. Let’s take a closer look at the differences between these two methods to see which one is ideal for you.

Trading In Your Car

Trading in your current car at a %%target_city_3%% area dealership can deliver huge tax benefits. You’ll typically only pay sales tax on the difference between your trade-in vehicle and the new purchase. Additionally, since you’re conducting both transactions at the same location, you’ll enjoy the convenience of a one-stop shop. To help you better understand your payments after accounting for the value of your trade-in vehicle, we’ve created this helpful payment calculator.

Selling Your Car

There may be instances when selling your car on the private market makes more sense. In general, if you have no sales tax in your area, then that eliminates the tax advantages of trading in. Additionally, if you have a lightly-used vehicle, you may make more money when selling to a private buyer. However, you’ll have to deal with the added stress of tire kickers and low offers you would never have considered. For more car-buying tips like the meaning of MSRP, visit %%di_name%%.

Dealerships vs. Craigslist

One avenue that many vehicle owners take when it comes to selling their current cars on the private market is Craigslist. While you might believe that Craigslist offers a great opportunity to sell your vehicle at a fair price, the opposite is often the case. That’s because Craigslist buyers in the %%target_city_4%% and across the country tend to low-ball and nickel-and-dime. A dealership has a vested interest in the transaction and can offer additional benefits, including trade-in capabilities and the many sales tax benefits that go along with it.

How to Fix Scratches on Your Car

Mechanic repairing and polishing car

Every Henderson driver knows having scratches on your car can be a nuisance while also affecting the resale value of the vehicle. From knowing how to fix deep scratches on your car to knowing how to fix paint scratches on a car, knowing this information will help Las Vegas drivers keep your vehicle looking good.

Fix Paint Scratches on Your Car at Home

If you’re looking to remove paint scratches from your vehicle, try toothpaste. Put a dab of toothpaste on a damp cloth, then rub it onto the paint in a circular motion. You’ll notice the scratch or scuff mark start to disappear.

Schedule Service for Deep Scratches on Your Car

How Do I Reset a Maintenance Light on a Toyota?

Cool guy driving his 2018 Toyota Camry in for service

Every 5,000 miles, the maintenance light will come on in your vehicle. That lets you know it’s time to bring your vehicle in for an oil change. However, if you want to reset a Toyota Camry maintenance light manually, simply take the following steps:

  • Turn your vehicle on and make sure the odometer reading is being displayed.
  • Turn your vehicle off.
  • While the vehicle is off, press the reset button for your trip meter. This will be located near your odometer.
  • Turn your key to the “on” position, but not “start.”
  • The odometer should display dashes instead of numbers and will slowly disappear. Next, zeros will appear and then steadily clear.
  • Once your mileage reappears, you can stop holding the reset button.
  • The Toyota maintenance light should be off. If it isn’t, it’s time to visit a trusted service center.

Turn to Findlay Toyota for Maintenance

It’s important to get regular maintenance for the safety of your Camry and Corolla, and that’s where Findlay Toyota comes in. Call us at %%phone_sales%% with any questions about your Toyota Corolla maintenance light.

Pet-Prepping Your Toyota

Dog in car

Planning to travel with pets? Whether you’re on a family adventure with a cat or a dog in your car, here’s what you need to do to pet-prep your Toyota model:

  • You Need Good Seat Covers: If your furry four-legged friend happens to have a major bathroom accident, durable seat covers may make the difference between a $20 cleanup and a $200 cleanup. Don’t risk it—get good seat covers!
  • Rubber Floor Mats: A set of rubber floor mats will prevent the same kinds of problems mentioned with seat covers from affecting the floor of your car. Floor repairs can be significantly more expensive than mat replacements, so it’s in your best interests to shop around for good floor mats.
  • Seat Barriers: A seat barrier will ensure that your fluffy friend stays in the back seat. A lot of pets—well, dogs, specifically—enjoy sitting on their owner’s lap in the front seat. This isn’t safe for a number of reasons, so you may want to consider a seat barrier if your pet falls into this category.
  • Cargo Area Nets: A cargo area net helps to organize your backseat or hatchback cargo area. I even keeps your pet safe by dividing the cargo area and your pet’s seating space. You may or may not need this additional protection, but if you’re traveling with lots of things in the backseat, you may want to consider it.

If you’re shopping for a new vehicle for traveling with pets, learn about some of the key differences between the Camry and Corolla. Whether you’re on the market for a new sedan or a used Toyota SUV, we are here to help your furry pals enjoy adventures in your Toyota vehicle.

Top Tips For Smooth Summer Travels

2016 Toyota Highlander

Summer is playfully dancing before us making it all too easy to daydream of trips to the beach or winery, weekends at the lake, and other fun adventures. When it comes to family travel plans, there is no better way to drive than onboard the 2016 Toyota Highlander. A refined interior, a functional cabin design, and seating up to eight are just a few of the many perks this SUV offers. But, in order to ensure your Highlander stays in optimal summer travel condition, there are several things you should do before hitting the road. Follow this checklist to make your summer travel plans run smoothly.

Check Fluids: Just as you survive on water, your vehicle runs on fluids, too. They include: coolant, oil, brake fluid, windshield wiper fluid, etc. To avoid potential car troubles on the road, be sure to check all fluids to make sure they are adequately filled and topped off. And while you're at it, pack some waters for you and your crew, too!

Inspect Tires: If you tend to ignore your tires, don't feel bad. Tires are easily one of the most ignored parts of a car. But before you leave town, it is vital to check your tires for any severe wear and tear. Treads should be at least 1/16th” or 1.6mm. Any lower and you risk hazards on the road like hydroplaning or blowouts. Also, make sure all tires are filled with the proper amount of air – and don't forget to check the spare!

Change Oil: Changes are, you are probably near time to get your car's oil changed, and there's no better time than before traveling to get this task done. Oil changes are by far one of the simplest and cheapest maintenance tasks you can do for your car. Not only does it make certain your car has enough oil, it also provides it with fresh oil that will better aid in keeping your engine running smoothly.

Check Air Filter: While getting your oil changed, this is also the perfect time to get your car's air filter checked. Air filters work to keep any debris from getting inside the engine, along with proving it with a continuous supply of air. Unfortunately, air filters become dirty and clogged over time, which will starve your engine of the air it needs to work efficiently.

Check Lights and Turn Signals: Lights and turn signals are crucial in order to see when it is dark or rainy, as well as to let other drivers known your intentions. So if you plan to travel via car this summer, it only makes sense to check that all lights and turn signals are functioning properly. Replace any bulbs that need changing, and purchasing a spare set of bulbs to keep in your car is always a good just-in-case plan.

For more summer travel tips, just ask us when you visit our dealership in Las Vegas, Nevada.
