I will respectfully disagree: Miles are miles!
That is why I rarely buy a used car; the previous owner had a problem with it!
This is not always the case, as many people get rid of their cars, simply because they are tired of it and want to drive something different or the car no longer meets their needs (practicality, cargo space, mpg's...) or even afford it.
I typically buy my cars slightly used, super low mile and save tons of money letting the first owner take the hit.
I bought my 2020 Bolt new because of the current crazy discounts.
Of course higher mile older cars have a higher chance of something mechanical going on. In that case give the vehicle a thorough look over for signs of abuse, lack of maintenance, run carfax... I typically never finance longer than the vehicle is covered under warranty.
