how old and how many miles?

i just bought my jeep on friday and it is a 2004 wrangler. its very clean and everything runs good. the only down side is it has 149xxx miles on it. the first owner drove it halfway across the country. but the national average is about 15,000 a year it seems about right. how old is your jeep compared to the miles?

but i think with mine it was a primary vehicle. 40000 and a 2004 make it sound like it was a secondary/ offroading vehicle

We bought our 2013 Sahara on 12/31/2012. It's about 2 1/2 months old and 804 miles.

02 with 57,000.


Carfax said the first 2 owners had it a year a piece and drove it about 14,000 a piece. And the last guy had it 5 years 7 months and drove it 16,000. I've had it 3 months and put about 2,000 on it.


My buddies dad has a 98 Sahara with right at 43,000. Both southern vehicles and have OCD owners(when it comes to vehicles).

94 with 241k.

For industry purposes, less than 12k a year is "low mileage", while over 15k a year is "high mileage".
