Craigslist Ad for '97 Jeep Is Brutally Honest
BY: TROY FRISBY

People have been known to do some dirty dealing on Craiglist every now and then, but apparently some still value real, brutal honesty. Well, at least one user, anyway.

An unknown person has listed a1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee for sale in New York, and they're not messing around with the details.

In what might be the most honest used car ad ever, the person starts by listing the "good" aspects about the vehicle.

The car has four-wheel drive, turns on and off and has "newish breaks." It also just passed inspection and features an AM radio.

But when they turn to the bad, they don't hold back.

Right off the bat, there's a bungee cord strapping the rear bumper. It makes "weird noises," and the fabric on the ceiling is hanging down. They joke that the trunk "will only open if you're The Fonz." Ayyyy!

Other than that, the passenger window doesn't work and the car has "weird smells sometimes." The car may not be a lemon, but it sounds like the potential new owner might want to spring for a lemon-scented air freshener.

But who knows? In this crazy world, this could be the mostly-working automobile of some Craigslist user's dreams.
