Detailed Vehicle History Definitions:

First Owner
When the first owner(s) obtains a title from a Department of Motor Vehicles as proof of ownership.

Lease
When someone leases a car from a dealer, the dealer actually sells the vehicle to a leasing company. The leasing company then collects payments for the vehicle from the new owner for 24, 36, 48 or more months. A leasing company can be an independent car dealer or a car manufacturer.

Mileage Inconsistency
If a more recent odometer reading is less than an older reading but CARFAX is uncertain whether the discrepancy is a rollback or a clerical error, then CARFAX calls it a "Mileage Inconsistency". In this case, you should verify the mileage with your dealer or a qualified mechanic.

New Owner Reported
When a vehicle is sold to a new owner, the Title must be transferred to the new owner(s) at a Department of Motor Vehicles.

I don't see anything wrong with leased vehicles, rentals are a different story. Most people that lease take care of the car because they know they have to turn in back in in good shape.
Now a rental.......great time to drop out that neutral drop..........

Now I'm dissappointed, I drove by the lot today to check it out. It looked great sunroof,leather, HUD and milage on odometer was 38384. The paint looked great for being dirty from the snow. Upon closer inspection the car had some pretty serious scratches on the hood,top,and trunk like someone had placed
boxes on there and dragged them across the car. That was a total heart break .
I really thought this was the one. I guess that saying is true "If it sounds to good to be true it usually is"

Paint isnt a big deal. We have a member that will go over the car and make it alot better. GTP Kid 2004 is his name. Look him up.

MAYBE ... if the scratches arent too bad they could possibly be buffed out . there are members here that may be able to help you there . I dont remember who does the work but someone will chime in .

it could quite possibly be a great bargaining (sp) tool as well...

Hehe, thats cool. We are in agreement though. I wouldnt write the car off when the difference really isnt worth it. Another place would probably ask 12K for that car. Save the money and do a nice job for the paint. You will still come out ahead.

YES, I do where and when did we race?? :rolleyes: What color is your GTP??

Back on topic Sorry :unsure:
The scratches are not like swirl marks, they are pretty deep I don't think a buffing will get them out. Repaint for sure not the whole car just the sections I mentioned

maybe u could work out a deal with them to take care of that, it seems like it would be hard to sell a car with deep scratches like that.
