Should I be concerned about the back and forth location that this vehicle has been registered in? With it being CT, exposure to very snowy climate is my concern. Also, is it normal for some of these Carfax reports to show duplicate titles?

Any thoughts about location of vehicle?-2014-11-25-21-15-30_deco.jpg

Looks like an older person who lives in dual locations perhaps? Possible the car avoided all snow.

I'd be more concerned with overall condition of the vehicle, mileage, and if it was maintained per the owners manual. Buying a car that's been driven in the snow doesn't concern me as newer vehicles are much better at corrosion resistance than those built in the 90's.

What is the car? More than likely a snow bird or someone with family in Florida.

More than one title listing on Carfax is not significant. Maybe the owner lost the CT title or they can get a cheaper registration or avoid a costly inspection with a FL title rather than the CT one.

No accidents, floods, or salvage on the Carfax = good. It appears to be the same owner, no change of owner noted, so don't look to be a major issue from the screen shot we can see.

Nope not neccesarily.. Carfax only shows stuff that is reported to it.. If nothing was reported then that doesn't always mean good...
