Should I avoid?

Have a chance to get a 2012 GTI Autobahn for less than 20K, but the catch is it has 46,000 miles on it. I know I know. The carfax looks clean. Should I avoid this deal like the plague?

For a car that is one year old and has 46,000 miles o.o I'd probably keep my options opened.

If it was a 2010 or 2011 it might make more sense to have that many miles on it. Me personally, I don't like to see that many miles on a car im purchasing.

on the contrary, more miles = more highway miles which is easier than stop and go traffic.

i agree w/ baja. it's always better to choose the car with 40k highway miles over a car w/ 20k of 5mile trips.

Thx for the replies

Thank you for all the feedback. I decided to go another direction, I couldn't bring myself to buy something that new, with that many miles on it. You just can't know what kind of abuse the car put up with in such a short span.

You have to realize that even though its a MY 2012, the car could have easily been bought in the first wave of 2012's so possibly June 2011 could have been its first sell date. all things considered, that car could be 2 years old already

as long as there are records of the maintenance especially oil changes, that sounds like an amazing deal
