CarFax only included models that were made in every model year from 2010 through 2019. Then, they looked at a sample of data from across the country to make sure that a meaningful number of each of these models are still on the road. They only included vehicles that they knew were personal cars, so that rental or commercial vehicles didn’t muddy the waters. After that, they calculated the percentage that have had only one owner over their lifetime.
