Cars that are resold within a year
It's always exciting to take the keys to a new car for the first time. That romance doesn't always last, though, and some cars are passed on to their next owners rather quickly. Automotive research firm ISeeCars has taken a look at the cars that are most likely to be resold within in a year, and crunched some of the numbers surrounding the heartbreaking turnaround.
You might be surprised that European luxury cars dominate this list. ISeeCars cites a disappointment from owners who opt for lower trim levels, not getting the level of luxury they expected. Sometimes, though, automakers incentivize dealers to purchase used cars as loaners, which could help to explain why so many owners give them up.
On the other end, some budget cars show up on the list, too, providing an even greater value to second owners. Either way, savvy shoppers can often score one of these nearly new vehicles at a hefty discount, with the vast majority of them commanding a much greater markdown than the average year-old used car.

The Nissan Versa sedan sees its fair share of year-one resales, at 8.7 percent. The Versa is the cheapest new car money can buy in 2019, which could explain why some folks want to be rid of the car sooner rather than later.
