"Refurbished." 

That's a completely subjective description.

How many cars have you seen with a "completely refurbished" interior, that still looks crappy?

Or, a "refurbished" engine that isn't right.

And, WTH does that even mean?  It was furbished originally at the factory, so I re-furbished it?

(Yes, I know the dictionary definition, but I mean in terms of a car.)

"Do not buy this car unless you like lots of attention!"

Due to the smoke pouring out of the exhaust, or from law enforcement, due to all of the lights/signals not working?
