11 Cars Sold Most Often in 1st Year
An interesting compilation to check out this week from Autoblog - a list of the most common models that are sold less than a year after being purchased new.
Most on the list are luxury models, such as the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes C-Class. Some reasons cited are not being satisfied with lower-trim models, but another reason why luxury models are on the list is because more of them are used as demo vehicles and sold as "used", even thought they've technically never had an owner outside of the dealership.
Nevertheless, if you're interested in one of these vehicles, it may be worth checking out 1-year old versions and see if you can snag an incredible deal.
