What you don't like in "For Sale" Ad?

Followings are some of the descriptions about For Sale Ad, that I don't like or I don't get it. What are your comments.

1- " It is upper fixer"--- What is lower fixer anyway?

2- " It is Mercedes"--- You are in Benzworld sale section-Ar'nt You?

3- " I hate to sell this car" -- Then don't sell it. love your MB.

4- " Odometer broke fow months back"-- How the hell I know wheather it is
few months or few Years.

5-" A/C not working just need freon" -- Just put it in some.

6- " If it does'nt sell it goes to crusher" -- Who is going to hit you or me? So
far it is your car.

7--" If no sale, I will junk it" --- I would do the same thing. Are you telling me
some thing new?

8- " It has some engine and transmission problems"-- Please describe it. You
know all the problems. Don.t you?


Let us see what you guys think?

Two that come to mind are:

a) "Should be a simple fix." a.k.a "I have no clue what's wrong but my neighbor's kid who's in special ed said it's probably a fuse."

b) "No scammers". Yea, this will stop 'em.

"excellent condition"

After wasting your time driving out to see it, it's a POS.

This really doesn't apply too much to MB cars, but when the seller doesn't disclose the transmission. When I was looking for my track rat E30 BMW 325i, I saw tons of craigslist ads & etc that had NO mention of stick or auto! It makes a difference!

1- " It is upper fixer"--- Means it's a POS that needs more work than seller can handle

2- " It is Mercedes"--- "Duh", is right.

3- " I hate to sell this car" -- But I can't afford to keep it running

4- " Odometer broke fow months back"-- Yeah, right - a few years ago

5-" A/C not working just need freon" -- Yeah, right - needs new AC system

6- " If it does'nt sell it goes to crusher" -- Where it belongs; it's a POS

7--" If no sale, I will junk it" --- See #6

8- " It has some engine and transmission problems"-- That I can't figure out

That's why I look at fifteen MBs and buy one; the rest are crap.

This is good one.

BONY-M
" Runs good. Just noticed oil in the COOOOOOlant" __ Who put it? you or your wife?
Come on, it is blown head gasket.

We are not FOOOOOOOOL. DADDY!
DADDY, DADDY COOOOOOL!!!!!!

Another one---------------


"Engine turn over but no start"-You don't know the reason or you don't want us to know?


One more-------------

" Nice running car. Drive it home. Smell gas inside"-- What is it? Gasoline or you FART A LOT. What are you selling car or a TIME BOMB.
