Ask the dealer if you can take it to your personal mechanic to get their opinion on the vehicle. If the dealer is not comfortable with permitting this it is a bad sign about their confidence in the vehicle.

Ronny, Finance Manager - www.prestigeautosalespa.com If you are trying to find the retail price for a used vehicle the value can be estimated at 12000 per year multiplied by each year will leave the actual Retail Blue Book Sales Price. In it all 100,000 miles for a used vehicle can be considered the norm, not saying you must do your research and take someone who knows the related mechanic end.


34000 or 98000 miles is good
