Most people wouldn’t even know there cars they are driving now have been repaired and in accidents.
I knew of someone who bought a cargo van that had a clean CarFax. At some point in the future they were doing something to it, and found sand/seashells in a location they had no reason to be, and then other evidence it had been underwater.
