Many rental car companies will look to sell a vehicle once it reaches a certain mileage number, regardless of the condition of the car. Most of the cars sold by rental companies are still in top condition, they have just reached the specified mileage number. The car is not being sold because of some kind of issue.
The obvious concern that comes from considering purchasing a former rental car is how the vehicle was treated by its various drivers. The best practice when considering a former rental car is to carefully inspect the car and review the maintenance history before making a decision. Purchasing your car from a dealership you can trust is also important. Proper research should be done before making any car-buying decision.
