I'm looking at a 2010 Lexus GS 350.
I have a few questions:
1. The dealer is asking 34k for this as CPO sale. Is CPO worth the money? This one has spider wheel upgrade.
2. Here is the car fax, it's confusing to me as what's a coporate fleet car, then registered as a manufactor car? A friend of mine said that it's like a rental, and I should avoid it. Is that true? also, why is this one owner, given the title has changed twice?
3. Given its price, should I be better off buying a newer model or the 2013 model?

no, i didn't end up buying it. I held off because I moved to an apartment which didn't have parking and the assigned parking spaces were really tight. so i didn't want to ruin a nice car.

Looks like it was a Lexus employee or executive lease... then, sent to a dealer auction, where that dealer purchased it for their inventory..

Would it be better to buy a private owner car than a company car? since the it would have been better taken care of?

I would expect an employee lease or an executive car to get regular dealer service.... I don't see an advantage in a privately owned car, at least not a car that is that new...
