Hey there Sean.
Not sure if you are still looking at the Ford Escape.
I ran a Carfax on the VIN. It is a Florida vehicle, purchased in 2003... one owner. "Guaranteed No Problem" with Salvage / Junk / Rebuilt. Along with Fire / Flood, Hail, Lemon. The mileage is valid.
No issues reported with accidents, air bag deployment, etc.
The Engine was serviced around 5,470 miles.
It was registered as a commercial vehicle on 3/22/2004. Again registered as a commercial vehicle around 11,290 miles. Finally it was sold at an auto auction with 48,639 miles on 06/28/07.
Looks good to go!
