Carfax says car was leased twice?

I always see Carfaxes that seem to to indicate the car was leased twice. What does it mean? How is it possible?

Possible Lease return. I'd use a second type of background check and get it sorted. Dealerships can be really shady. I went through a whole debacle when I was looking for my 2008 Porsche Cayman S. DEALERSHIPS ARE SUPER SHADY. Get more than one report and it looks shady then find another car.

For example, my Porsche Cayman S showed 2 owners. And another car fax report showed 1`owner. I asked to speak with the sales manager and he called the regional manager. the regional manager asked, "am i on speaker phone? take me off". The second I heard that I was like fck that shit. I'm out. Fckn shady dealer.

check the dates on the lease. Sometimes, it will show 2 owners with the SAME dates. This is definately lease.

Easy! Lease assumption.. 1st owner did 36 months from dealer and only used for 12 months then had a new owner take over the lease

Used cars can be leased as well. When I purchased my pre-owned M3 from the dealer, they asked me if I wanted to lease it. I was pretty surprised that people lease used cars.
