If a car has high miles, then it should also have worn seats and carpets,
particularly the driver side. Look for obvious signs of wear and age, and if
there aren't any, you can be reasonably sure that the car has the miles it
says. If you are not comfortable with that, then buy a new car.
You have to go into a used car purchase with the idea that everybody on the
planet is not a crook. If you are convinced that we are all crooks, then
your only safe buy is a new car.

The golden rule is "everything should match"; all the wear should be
equal, so mats (or carpets), pedals, and most importantly, if original,
steering wheels. A good look at a steering wheel can tell you a lot
about a car. Especially if leather.
