Is a 3 yr old car with 100,000 miles the same as a 10 yr old car with 100,000 miles?

Asked by Jan 14, 2016 at 02:40 PM about the 2013 Honda Civic LX

Question type: General

I guess I'm just wondering if AGE wears your car out as much as mileage.

Or I suppose another way to ask the question is this: If I put 100,000 miles on
a car in 3 years, if it's maintained properly, will I end up with a 3 yr old car that
is in just as good shape as a 3 yr old car with 20,000 miles?

of course not. The interior and exterior such as paint would be like the other 20K car, but the suspension components and drivetrain will be worn even though you maintained the 100K car. Plus mileage effects what the car is valued at.
