When looking at cars I saw all sorts of things like this when running the vin. One wonders if it was the way the dealership purchased the vehicle that shows it is another owner?
With car dealer vehicles (using autocheck
which I ran on this one, last few days of subscription! lol) you usually see that the car was either traded and it shows up in "dealer inventory" or that it went to auction and it will show the auction and which area and then dealer inventory. This one shows nothing as far as dealer inventory. Just makes you wonder if someone actually at the dealer owns it and is trying to sell it. Just not seen that before.
Might also be a delay in reporting, but not experienced that before either and I've look at quite a number.
Looking at it, the first owner moved quite a bit (seen that before as well) and did not drive the truck much. About 6k annually. So, my first thoughts and the area it was from, was that the owner had a couple of vehicles and split the miles he/she was doing between this and the other car. Would wonder if the truck was used for bad weather driving more. Keeping the car in the garage when it was snowing outside.
As such, I'd really have a good look underneath. Even though dealer has had a look (service reports below for you) ask to see it on a rack in the service department. Look for corrosion and see if any bolt heads are getting eaten away. Look for any strange coatings as well like that spray undercoat. Saw a car once that had spray undercoat and when you prodded at it with a screwdriver it ended up having cardboard over rust holes and then the undercoat sprayed over to hold it in place and make everything look okay. While you are under there, look for signs (even though nothing on the car fax) of overspray like any repairs done. Seen a few that show nothing, but obviously have had paint work done on panels here and there.
Don't know about there, but even the big dealers here pay guys who show up in a van and do paint out in the back lot to repair chip damage, scratches, bumper repair etc. Looks good on the lot, but how long is the paint going to hold up..... Pays to look.
Drive it an make sure nothing odd going on and that everything works with no funny noises. I know what you mean on pricing as here the prices are crazy too. Anything that comes close to being on kbb values for condition does not last a day and it is sold. Last one I tried to look at posted a for sale ad on CL at 9 pm and at 8 am the next day it was sold. Most seem to be sold at over kbb by quite a margin in this area. Even so, for that sort of money I'd feel it better be in primo shape. I'd not be forgiving of anything that does not work or is damaged.

second owner looks strange. Looks like they put 1,600 miles on it in a year and 8 months. Then when they sold it to the NC person it shows purchased in colorado springs.
Autocheck shows no accidents or title issues. Only finance and emissions reported.
See if history will show
