What is implied by a carfax report that indicates: "Type of owner- Commercial"? This is for a very clean 2005 Legacy limited with 59000 miles, original tires (?), and documented service every 3000-6000 miles.

Thanks,

Rupe

Hi. A rental car or fleet car? Where was the the documented service done, that might be a clue.

If it's a normal cloth 2.5i, automatic trans etc, it could easily have been a rental.

Thanks for the response Joe. I have been told that this was a leased vehicle and this seems plausible to me:

- the condition seems too good for a rental car with that much mileage,
- I am under the impression that most, if not all, rental firms don't usually offer cars with this high of mileage,
- the car does have leather/heated seats.

In any event- I bought it.
