Do you mind if I ask what you paid? There is one near me listed at $700 that looks to be in very good condition based on pictures.

If it's in great shape I think that would be a good buy.

What type of grease other than Ariens High Temp should I use for the fittings. In all the places that need a oil lube seems like I should something that won't freeze, Teflon or a dry lube.

I use either Mobil 1 or a marine grade grease just depends on which grease gun is handy or which one I can find at the time
I actually have spray cable lube for the control cables and everything else gets a bit of grease smeared on it or a drop or two of oil. I like to put a drop of oil on bushings to try and prolong their life.

Did this 2011 model year come with the Auto Turn feature. Mine has the clips that can be moved to inside/outside of wheel.

2011 models do not have Auto-Turn from the factory. Auto-Turn was introduced for the 2014 model year (copied from @sscotsman page):

Year 1 of Auto-Turn: 2014 model year, machines sold Autumn 2013 - original axle position.
Year 2 of Auto-Turn: 2015 model year, machines sold Autumn 2014 - original axle position.
Year 3 of Auto-Turn: 2016 model year, machines sold Autumn 2015 - original axle position.
Year 4 of Auto-Turn: 2017 model year, machines sold Autumn 2016 - new, corrected axle position.
Year 5 of Auto-Turn: 2018 model year, machines sold Autumn 2017 - new, corrected axle position.

2015 Ariens Platinum 30 SHO - model 921040
