I guess it depends on whether one knows if the car has been in an accident or not. When you trade a car in the dealer, you are not required to let them know if the car has been in an accident. Also if the car has been repaired properly through comprehensive insurance it should (being the operative word) be repaired back to the way the car was before the accident so hence it shouldn't devalue the car in anyway.
But by the same token if one individual can prove an accident repair that he/she is not happy with, then no doubt the price of the car will be devalued abit.
