    Yeah. I love the ads where the seller says the car runs great, but the transmission slips, or it has a broken head gasket. Both of those are repairs that range in the $1000 range, and moreover prevent your car from running at all.

    I also love all the cars that are priced at twice the blue book value for a car in excellent condition, when the car clearly has body damage and several mechanical issues. Just because you could get that dent filled and repainted, new upholstery, and a new set of oxygen sensors doesn’t mean you can claim that your car is magically worth twice what it would be worth if you actually did get all those repairs. Why, if my car was worth the cost of all repairs that it needs, I’d be a wealthy man.
