Trading in a recovered ‘stolen’ car

Tried to upgrade my car for a cheaper to run insure and fuel newer model - but after the stress of having my car stolen off my drive and then recovered almost instantly I’m now stressed again by the fact that a very well know prestigious car dealership has HALVED the value of the trade in price they previously gave me....
All because the car check showed my car was stolen / recovered last year ! My car was locked and manufacturer alarmed when it was taken and found almost undamaged within 1/2 hours and had t been ‘joy ridden’ or miles added
Can’t quite believe I’ve lost 1000’s on its value
