I am considering a higher mile car with 72k miles on it. It is a 2012. I will no doubt be doing mods on the car later.

What should I be looking out for?

Also want to hear from owners with high mile cars and their experiences.

Thanks in advance

You should be looking at Carfax, maintenence history if they kept all records, brake pad wear, rotor wear, tire life/how they are wearing..etc

There is more to look for, but the most important is that maintenance history. 36k and 72k mile services are big.

I would also look at the fit/finish/interior condition. Seats. If it was a 2011 build, its coming up on 5 years so 15K miles a year its at the high end of average. Take the vin # to a local Nissan dealer and ask them to pull a service record on it. see what all has been done to it. And it has to be the right price.

Nothing wrong with one with high mileage there are starting to be more and more and most seem to be holding out well. So if it has been kept up with on maint I wouldn't really see any reasons not to if the price is right..

70k miles, meaning the previous owner probably drove it everywhere, long commutes, road trips, etc. He/she must be very confident in the car's reliability, which means probably no crazy mods done, very little to non launches, no engine and tranny surgeries. IMO.

Get a thorough pre-purchase inspection, have a Nissan GTR service tech check out the VIN and get a vehicle analysis from the ECU, i.e. How many launches, Time transmission fluid above Cat 5 temps (at least I think it's called cat 5), rotor wear.

Even with 53000 miles and most of them FBO E85 with 610hp at the wheels, this has been the most reliable car I have ever owned. More reliable than BMW, Ford, and even a 350z I used to own. Only my Honda Civic I owned in high school was near my GTRs reliability.
