Top 10 Cars Most Likely to Have Been in an Accident

If you’re shopping for a used car, this list might come in handy.

A recent study has found the top 10 cars most likely to have been in an accident, which is something you’ll want to keep in mind if you’re in the market for a used car. WikiLender examined more than 2.4 million vehicles from the model year 2009 and up, in both wholesale and retail markets to find which cars had the highest percentage of repaired accidents.

In order to determine if a vehicle had a reported accident, WikiLender used Experian Autocheck. To determine vehicles in an unreported accident, it used auction condition reports that showed more than one metal body panel with signs of paintwork in cases where the Autocheck report did not show an accident.

Here are the top 10 cars most likely to have been in an accident.

10. Infiniti QX60
