Buying a used car from a personal seller

Asked by Aug 26, 2018 at 01:27 PM about the Mazda MAZDA3

Question type: General

I found a car on CarGurus that is being sold by a personal seller.  When I used
the VIN to do a Car Fax report, the report lists it as a personal lease car.  How
can the leasee be selling it and shouldn't they say something about it in their
ad?

If the car is currently leased they cannot sell it. Ask them about it and then verify what they say.

Don't have to put in ad but good catch on your part. Don't want to be apart of a fraud or scam.....
