Question Need your opinions

Hey guys, I need some other opinions. My wife and I went to test drive 2 Commanders today and we like both very much, but there are some things we didnt.

Vehicle #1:
4.7L
QTII
Tires in good shape
Paint in good shape
25700 miles
lease turn in
Idiot owner screwed front licence plate holder in bumper, so now if I remove it I will be left with holes in the bumper
Interior needs a little cleaning, you can tell they had youg kids...
No fog lights
No trailer tow package

Vehicle #2:
4.7L
QTII
Tires in Fair shape
Front bumper had large scratch on passenger corner
25900 miles
Fog lights
Trailer tow package
Was a rental car turn in...
Interior very clean

The price difference between them is $500 and for that I could put in fog lights, and a hitch.

Basically I'm worried about getting one that was a rental at one time and I'm sure was probably beat on even though they are under warranty. What do you think?

I'd take the leaser - and then I'd get a 4.7 bumper and not worry about the scratches or holes! =)

I'd probably go for #1, you don't know how either was driven but the rental was driven by many. Is there any warranty left?

i would definitely NOT get one that was a rental with a tow package. that's just asking for trouble.

They are both 2006 and yes both have warranties left. #1 is what i was leaning towards, so thanks for the feedback.
