Well I believe most drivers average 10,000 to 12,000 miles per year so if you do the math it shouldnt be to hard to figure out what is considered low miles for a 5 year old car.


anything below 50,000 miles for a car older than 5 yrs- anything below 100,000 mi. for a car over 30 years old- are you a bass guitar vixen or a fish vixen?
