Looking VERY closely at the various photos, I see evidence of bumpers not meeting the body quite right. The front bumper was most likely replaced or at minimum repainted since it looks TOO good.

Gauge lighting looks to have an issue, left half of tach and speedo.

Spare tire is in upside down? Funny, just checked mine to compare and mine is flat, haha!

Odd shiny screw holding the front bumper to the wheel well liner on one side, blue screw on the other. Back bumper wheel well also has some shiny rivets...

Some tires seem to have some terrible inner wear.

Buttons and switches and labels seem to be in too good condition for the age and if the mileage were 192k. So 192k might be wrong...

Tons of oddities in the Carfax report:
20k service around 190k
30k service around 150k
60k service at 117k
90k service at 90k
Lots of tires mounted, maybe they mean rotated.
Front and rear wheel bearings/hubs replaced at 20k and then again at 35k?
Nothing in the report after 2012, so what has it been up to for 5 years?

I'd worry about rust underneath, no photos there.

Mystery car...
