Hi all. Am looking to buy a 2016MY GX4H or higher, and enquiries on Auto Trader seem to show almost all are company owned. Whilst this is unsurprising due to tax breaks, should I be more wary of an ex company example than a privately owned one? And is it possible to find out if it was a lease vehicle, or worse case, a hire car with 200 less than careful users! Asked a Mitsubishi main dealer about 2 possible ones, both £15k - both were owned by the same lease company - and online reviews of said company are appalling. Should this matter if there is full SH and a year's warranty is included?
One of the car supermarkets said they could only say it was company owned due to GDPR, so no way of knowing what sort of company - is this just a way to smoke screen?
Many thanks for any tips. I had a diesel 09 plate outlander for 5 years, so know the vehicle. Also have a leaf so used to ev.
