Since the value of a car drops much faster in a short time after you buy it (about $3,000 dollars right after you drive it off the lot!) and much slower as time goes on, the actual price drop for a used car after each mile it has been driven is not constant. For the first three thousand miles or so, cars usually drop about $5,000-$10,000, so it averages out to around $1.50 to $3 per mile. After that, the price drop is lower, and can go from around $.25 to $.50 per mile. These are only estimates, and the actual price drop also depends on the model of car you are looking at and where you are buying
