Looking to buy higher milage

Post by HappyJellyFish » Fri May 21, 2021 7:07 pm

Hi there,

I am currently looking to purchase a V6s but the car I am looking at has a higher than average milage 48,000ish.

It seems to have full service history.

Does anyone have any experaince with buying a higher milage F-type (is 48k even that high milage for a V6?), and are there any specifics I should be looking out for other than the usual stuff?

I am going to use it as a daily, weekender and occasional track use.

Thanks

Mine has 55k, UK car and no issues at all

Check for a good service history (which you say it has), then usual checks as for any car
Look at MOT history on line for any advisories
For me it's more on condition than anything - leather seats, trim, paint, wheel dings, etc.
Accident damage??

Surface rust on rear subframe members is something specific to check
Rear diff oil changed for an 'S'. Listen for clunks too
