If you mean "totall loss" or "written off" then take them to Court. The dealer has no legal obligation to inform you that a car has been wrecked, unless you ask. Now if the car was totaled and then rebuilt and re-titled, then you may have legal recorse. Some states require that the dealer inform buyers of this and some states don't. Contact you State Attorney General for the your states laws on this. This is where a service like Car Fax can be of benefit.

Oh, boy! What else is he hiding? Is he able to support them all? Why is it he never told you? Did he think you'd never find out? He seems a little immature and a lot in denial.
