There are a number of points to consider when discussing the ideal mileage of a used Toyota car. Like with any vehicle - from the cheapest to the most expensive - optimum performance and enjoyment will depend on how well the driver looks after their car. Regular servicing, addressing any mechanical issues promptly and driving in a responsible manner, will mean that a car can clock up the miles without any negative impact in its performance. A well looked after car with 100,000 miles on the clock, but which has had regular servicing, will be just as reliable and deliver just as good a performance as a car with 20,000 miles.
