I've driven and bought cars that has had 200,000 miles on them after 15 years and I drove the cheap car for another 5 years and sometimes the vehicle was still okay to drive and in good shape.

But sometimes a vehicle that has been poorly maintained can be considered high mileage at 100,000 to 150,000 miles but it all depends on how well maintained the vehicle was.

Some cars and trucks can last as long as 500,000 miles although that's rare but if you maintain the vehicle is should give you a long life.

Average drives put around 12,000 miles per year on a vehicle so in 10 years the vehicle would have 120,000 miles on the odometer.
