Its unlikely to be lease turnover as unless they were very early 2011 build 2012 models they would not likely be coming up on two years yet, the minimum typical lease, and that seems like high mileage for a lease at 12k/year average for a lease.
correct. my car was a rental that was taken out of service at 29,000 miles
