Buying a Used Manufacturer Buyback (Lemon)

I was browsing 2014's and thought I had found a great deal on the exact build I was looking for, with very low miles to boot. I started doing some VIN searches and it looks like it was a manufacturer buyback that was auctioned off. I wasn't aware this was possible, but I guess so. Obviously I don't want to touch this one, but what repercussions would the buyer have if there were any future lemon-related issues? I would assume the vehicle is still under the manufacturer's warranty...

Seeing this definitely makes me want to be extra cautious if buying pre-owned.

Welcome to AutoCheck
Your repercussions would be defined by any warranty on used vehicles and the lemon laws in your state, possibly with a bit of complication for buying a florida car from texas for an alabama resident.

I don't suppose Experian would would have details on the lemonosity?
It might not be something you'd care about...

If you work thru a local dealer, wouldn't they be able to pull up a service history [unfortunately only dealer service history] on any prospects...

As for what happened here being possible, don't get too shocked until you see seaweed on the seatcovers.
