The firm excluded vehicles with less than 1,000 miles on the odometer from the study. This was done to keep the study from being skewed by “car punching”, which is when automakers offer incentives to dealers to buy new cars to use as loaners and then resell them when they’re still under a year old.

Check out the list of the most commonly resold cars within the first year of ownership:

“Jaguar is notorious for having high operating costs, which may cause new car owners to give up their cars soon after purchase,” iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly said in a prepared statement.

“However, the automaker has fought to improve that perception by recently decreasing prices and adding free scheduled maintenance for new cars.” 

The data says 8.8% of Jaguar XFs were resold.

8. Nissan Versa Note

The second Nissan Versa on the list is the hatchback Note version. The data says 9% of the Notes were resold.
