More luxury cars are resold within the first year of purchase

TUCSON – Most people who buy a new car hope to hang on to it for a while.

cars are given up within a year of being purchased.

Here in Tucson, The Subaru WRX leads the way with 9.5% being resold in the first year after purchase.

Followed by the Fiat 500 at 9.0% and the Dodge Challenger at 7.6%
