To hear Plato tell it, somewhere above us in the realm of forms and ideas there is one, and only one, perfect automobile, of which the lemon you're driving in the physical world is merely a crude imitation (you've probably suspected something along those lines already). Plato, obviously, has never thumbed through his local Auto Trader. Wading into the deadly morass of adjectives and promises in those rags can be daunting, so we at Motive have assembled a collection of the most egregious turns of phrase you're likely to encounter. If you're just beginning to look for a car, a red flag should run up your mental pole whenever you encounter anything on our list. If you're selling a car, consider the following a primer on how to unload your old heap.
The 1958 Ferrari 412S? That's rare. That base-model Kia Rio sitting unloved in the back corner of a dealer's lot? That's also rare, but in an entirely different way. Problems begin cropping up when sellers begin confusing, as they often do, "rare" with "desirable." That pea-green Country Squire wagon with woodgrain paneling and a green cloth interior is indeed rare. It is not, unless you are in possession of a Kermit fetish, desirable.
