Thank you for the reply.
I am concerned about the history of a vehical, because of the mysteriously low mileage. Briefly speaking, it had 10 miles in 2002 at the time of becoming a leased vehicle for 3 yrs and 3 mos. At that time, the vehicle had 21,357 miles and was taken to auction three times in three months, ultimately being "announced as fleet/lease vehicle. Two months later, the car had only 3 additional miles and was at auction again as a fleet/lease vehicle. Six months later, it had 200 more miles (21,580) and was at auction again. Eight months later, a dealer bought the car from auction and is selling it now with only 22,126 miles.
Any input as to why this car had less than 800 miles put on it over the course of 5 years? What could be the explanation? Was it sitting in a mechanic shop with mulitple problems that I will never know about? Was it just being idle with no motion, allowing any fluids to gum up? Am I being overly cautious?
If you or anyone has input about this, please let me know. I am concerned and at the same time, I feel like this is a good deal with low miles. Thank you.
