Trying to sell a vehicle on Craigslist can be a real headache with all of the broke jokes trying to barter for everything but the guy who listed a particular for sale ad for a 1997 Jeep Cherokee made sure to touch on all of the downsides to Craigslist selling when he posted the ad. The owner of the 97 Jeep in question also went into graphic detail about the Jeep, about the type of people who shouldn’t buy this Jeep and the type of people who should buy this Jeep. In doing so, the owner of this Cherokee has put together a Craigslist ad that is both one of the most detailed Ive seen and one of the most humorous.
Some of my favorite lines from this Jeep for sale ad include “If you have been posting on facebook all about how excited you are for pumpkin latte season: THIS VEHICLE IS NOT FOR YOU”, “Do you consider the Prius an abominable affront to the Gods of displacement, torque, and All Mighty Internal Combustion”, and “Rear bumper has a big-ass crease in it. I dented it backing into a concrete pole. Sober. We drove away giggling, for the record. Haven’t fixed it”…but those are just three of the dozens of hilarious lines found in this Jeep listing.
Unfortunately, the Craigslist ad for the 1997 Jeep Cherokee has disappeared from the sure-to-get-you-scammed website but one of our members was smart enough to copy the text from the listing so that we can all enjoy it one last time.
