What car should i lease

what car should i lease

carfax confusion. Sold at auction? Should I buy this used car?

Hi,

Thanks for reading this. I'm considering buying a used 2007 a4 from craigslist. I test drive the car already and it didn't seem to have any problems to me.

My concern though is that when I checked it on carfax. It seems to have three previous owners instead of two, which is what the owner told me.

I couldn't explain all the items (nor the current owner) on carfax. My main concern is if I could find the next buyer when I'm selling the car.

I skipped some maintenance records.

The current owner told me he is the second owner and bought the car around 80k mileage.

When I asked him why carfax showed three owners he said probably that's because he financed the car and so reported the title as sold at auction? he doesn't seem to know it really well also

I would like to ask..

1) should i not buy the car because somehow it was listed as a dealer vehicle and sold at auction?

2) the car was involved in a sideswipe collision in 2008 but it's clean title and the body looks fine to me. Is it possible that the collision was minor but would still be reported on carfax?

3) I brought the car to local auto shop and the car doesn't seem to have issues to them, in that case, should I worry about the car?
