If the name is taken by you as insult, that means you have bad opinion related to it.
I don't buy all the political correctness with the names. Especially that last year in the middle of nowhere in Oregon, about 180 miles to closest city I run into Gypsies horse wagon, with horses eating the grass on the highway shoulder and big sign "Visitors welcome".
I bought curved mirror for my Mercedes from Romanian ebay seller last year and had my thought at the time, but mirror arrived just fine.
I grow up in Europe and sadly have to admit that honesty level almost in all countries is pretty low. When you enter main downtown street in Amsterdam the first huge banner you see says "beware of pickpockets"
Germany are one of few exceptions, but they do have lot of minorities in the country.
So bottom line - buying a used vehicle is always going to come with a risk.
