Should I buy the car with lower millage or lower price?

Asked by Jun 27, 2017 at 11:39 PM about the 2014 Cadillac ELR Base

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I'm going to buy a CPO Cadillac ELR 2014. I've checked two cars, one of them
has 42k miles on it and priced at 28k, the other one has 20k miles and priced at
31k. Which one do you think is a better deal? I'm thinking that I might end up
paying the price difference in maintenance over the next few years.

The cheaper car has an upgraded interior and better color, so I like that one more,
but is 42k miles considered too much?

Neither car is high miles. I would try to get the 20k mile car for less. Offer them 28k!


Think of it this way, 22,000 miles is probably a year or two of driving for most people. It may not matter much now but add another 70,000 miles to the cars and one will have 90k and the other 112k miles.


CPO is great if you can get it for the right price.

It's a Cadillac. ..get the one you love looking at & driving ..only answer that truly matters ♡~♡
