    How To Tell If Car If Car Is Ex-lease

    Good point, I hadn't thought of that but it makes sense. I'm guessing that's why independent garages like these auctions. They buy at way below the market rate for a second hand car. Then they advertise as "one owner" and expect the market rate, leaving them with greater profit. I still think...

    How To Tell If Car If Car Is Ex-lease

    My point isn't that people shouldn't buy lease cars. But rather that it should be made clear it's ex-lease/demo/etc, or it should be possible for a buyer to find out. Regards ex-demo.

    How To Tell If Car If Car Is Ex-lease

    Just a personal preference. I'd rather buy a car that wasn't a lease car. So anyone know how to tell if a one owner car was a lease car when the V5 doesn't have a lease company on it?
