In sum cases the new car is a gamble. Nobody wants to be disappointed with a cars quality.As soon as I see “used” I move on. I know *sugar* happens on new too. But with used you have no idea what the car has been through even if it only has a 100 miles on it. Major repairs could have happened. Only reports that go through insurance are recorded with CarFax. Everything else can stay hidden.
Paying $100K+ for a used car is a huge gamble. Some win, some lose. I don’t gamble.
