When can you use the term "low-miles" in a used car ad? Under 50K? Less than 100K? If you have looked at a lot of car ads, you will find that the term depends on a few factors. Here is an example of an SUV that could make the cut. Find this 2006 Jeep Limited CRD 4x4 for sale in Columbus, OH for $8,250 via craigslist.
The seller of this Jeep refrains from claiming "low-miles" and my hat is off to her or him. The mileage figure is placed in the ad body, and in the ad criteria section, as it should be. After all, what will make you close out an ad faster than the absence of an odometer reading?
A claim of "low-miles" as a selling point for a contemporary passenger car with over 100K miles would probably detract from a seller's credibility in most cases. Some cars, however, should be exempt from this rule. Examples are: Lexus 400 series sedans, anything powered by a Cummins diesel engine (anything under 150K is just gettin' broke in), and Checker cabs.
