Top 10 Cars Most Likely To Be Involved In Accidents

Chris Coleman of created this table to help you determine which kind of vehicle you might want to choose the next time you go car shopping. They examined over 2.4 million vehicles, 2009 and newer to find out which cars had the highest percentage of reported accidents. The hard part was trying to identify unreported accidents. To do that they used condition reports from auctions that showed more than 1 metal body panel with signs of paintwork, but where the Autocheck report, the same report they used to determine reported accidents, failed to show that an accident had occurred. Basically, the accidents had occurred but went unreported for one reason or another.

If you are involved in an accident, you have the right to decide which towing company tows your car. When you call 911, ask the dispatcher to send J & L Towing and Recovery. We are your friends in the towing business, since 2004, in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.
