I ran the carfax thing on my car and it came back clean, no insurance claims or anything and I've had the carpets out to look for water damage and everything seems fine so it's just a guess but these cars are probably not insurance or salvage vehicles.
I've seen a half dozen of these deals this past summer and fall.
It's very weird. I'll update the thread as I find more Mitsus.
