Many thanks to MPG Numbers Guy! He got me the Carfax and it did not have enough information for me to want to pursue the car, but my curiosity got the best of me. The Carfax showed a registration in 2011 with 224,000 miles, and then the fourth registered owner on 10/19/2018 with 224,000 miles.
Why didn't anyone drive it for almost eight years? Did the registration lapse or is Carfax missing it?

Did it break down and sit on someone's property for eight years? Was it in an accident and not fixed for half its life? Was the odometer rolled back to the value from eight years before?

Somehow Autocheck has twice as many events, but it seems like the rest of the report is missing information.

Autocheck shows two more drivers than Carfax. Apparently the first owner had a loan. Is that important?

It was registered three times in 2010, twice in 2011, and then in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

How weird is it to register the same car multiple times in the same year? What about titles 33 days apart?

The previous owner had it for seven years and nine months, but it does not show any odometer readings during that time, so either it was not driven, or someone tampered with the odometer.

Does that sound like someone else' problem to you?
