Is a car dealership considered an owner of a vehicle it is selling?

Asked by Jul 16, 2013 at 11:39 AM about the 2009 Ford Ranger Sport SuperCab 4Dr 4WD

Question type: General

I was looking at a truck, and the Carfax said it was a two owner vehicle.  It says the  2nd owner bought the truck a month ago, but lists no mileage.  I asked a salesman about the 2nd owner, he told that the dealership was the 2nd owner.  Is that possible?

A Carfax list of owners does not include the dealer, unless they actually bought it at auction for re sale as opposed to a trade in

That's what I figured. And they told me it was a trade-in.

Baloney. Would not be the first, or last, time a car salesman told a whopper

The DMV in your State may be able to tell you. Disclosure laws vary On a trade in the dealer will never register the car until sold. Why pay fees twice?

Most dealers don't transfer title until it's sold. Know how to tell that a Used Car Salesman is lying? You can see his lips move.
