Two KIA's - CarFax Decision - Need some Input.

I'm looking at two KIA Sorento's -2013. Pre-Owned Certified.

Would love the input on the following as I'm a bit stuck.

The two Sorento's are practically identical (Color/Price/Milage (White/$19.9K/38K)

Only difference is one has a roof rack and also a V6 3.5L (vs. the other which is 2.4L 4 cylinder). Seems like a no brainer, but the V6 has 4 previous owners on the car fax vs. the 2.4L has 1.

Is that such a big issue? One of the four owners (the first) was listed as a rental, the rest personal. A bit of a red flag, however if both have the KIA Pre-Owned Certification should I feel okay?

What are your thoughts? I appreciate any insight.

If the car is CPO then it should be a no brainer.

My 07 Grand Prix is listed as being a rental the first 9500 miles of its life, then went through several owners before I bought it at 123k miles in 2011. Almost 4.5 years I sit with 176k miles and it still runs and looks great.
