What do you consider a corporate vehicle?

Depends. A lot of times fleet vehicles can be maintained well, purely because the company wants them to run well over a long period of time. Other side of the coin is that a guy poured a bunch of money into his personal truck and wants to keep it running and in the best condition possible. Either one has potential drawbacks and advantages. Look at the individual truck closely, rather than where it came from.

It is/ was a lease. So it would be just as any used vehicle would be. A lease is sometimes called a Corp vehicle

I wouldn't. I've had a company car most my life and while I do take care of them they do run 8 to 10 hours a day.

The guy was a dentist in Jackson city Missouri does that make it any better if a deal? I plan to call him and ask him about the truck because he traded it in so he's already received his money therefore it won't matter if he tells me the truth about the car. What do you guys think?

I rent trucks through Enterprise for work and can tell you, they don't keep up with the maintenence. I've had 3 F150s over the past year. When I got the first, it had 7500 miles on the oil and I drove it for about 4000 more miles. About the same scenario with the 2nd. The 2016 I'm driving now was brand new when I got it, has 10000 miles on factory fill oil. I'd rather buy a vehicle that was maintained by a personal party. Wouldn't hurt to give the guy a call
