How important is mileage?

It would seem to me that the life of a toad is pretty easy. The view isn't very good, but not a lot of effort is required.

Should mileage be a major factor in the search for a used toad? It would seem that good suspension and brakes are the most important criteria, and it will experience little wear and tear on the drive train.

Would you a toad with 100 or 150 thousand miles?

Our '97 Jeep had 135,000 miles when we sold it, some towing four down. Our present towed is a Honda Odyssey with 90,000 miles, some of it four down and some on a dolly.

Most cars nowadays will got 100,000 miles, some, like most Honda's, will go 200,000 without too much trouble.

Today's cars and trucks can go well in the the 300k mile life with proper maintenance and care. Not like the POS's we were buying on the 70's and 80's. We have almost 100k on the 07 Wrangler, still looks and runs like new. If a PO had records, I wouldn't worry about mileage.
