I'm new here. I live in NE Iowa and recently traded my 2008 Impala SS that my wife was using to commute for a 2015 LTZ. While I am going to miss the HP of the Impala, I am not going to miss paying for all that gas!

The reason we ended up with the LTZ is because she has been spoiled with all the amenities that the Impala had. She requested something with leather heated seats, remote start, and sunroof. I just wanted a car that got better fuel economy and didn't break the bank. We were fortunate to pick up the only LTZ in town. According to CarFax is was a rental for the first 18k and then was a lease vehicle for the next 24k. I'm not sure how i I feel about that about it seems to run and drive well so I think it will be OK. The tires were a bit bloomed, and it has a few nicks and scratches here and there but it's a daily driver, not a show car.

Here it is, fresh off the lot.

How can a Rental become a Lease though? I know Uber can lease you a car, and I know you can rent a car by the hour from Enterprise in my town for those who can't afford or need a full day.

It has had 2 separate owners before me. The first was a rental company. They sold it to another company who leased it to someone.

Yes that makes sense although most leases are done with new cars. You still have plenty of the 5 yr/100K powertrain warranty left and because it was a Chrysler dealer why not check and see if your car has any open recalls here: https://my.gm.com/recalls

Ty Eddy!
Currently, there are no recalls or programs associated with your 2015 Chevrolet Cruze

If the paperwork doesn't show a oil change as part of the prep work, I'd get a oil change pronto with a full synthetic.

The Chevy dealer here I was using when I had a Cruze all had cars "Leased" by some company called O'Brien. Every single car was 4-6 years old pretty much. The whole fleet of loaners were ran though this company who pretty much treated us like we were renting the car using dealership vouchers. This is literally one of the cars I had but didn't make it to the Rental car Review Thread. After digging a bit I found they do both lease and rentals so that's possibly how both could take place.

Yes I was wondering how a new car could then become a leased car later in life and then sold to a 3rd user but of course it can. The real risk factor would be for the 2nd customer who leases the car as it needs to be normally returned and in a specific condition
