And for many, that would immediately ring alarms, but it appears people on the internet were not discouraged as she received over 26 bids.
She goes on to continue her rant about the love-hate (mostly hate) relationship she’s had with her unreliable car.
“I crashed it within the first week with some minor damage to the bumper which I haven’t bothered to fix. I left it for 5 hours unaccompanied in Brixton while I attended a rave which I couldn’t stay for the entirety as I had work at 6am and came back to find a can of Stella rammed in the bonnet, leaving a small crack.”
But apparently it wasn’t all bad for the owner and her little red Fiat 500; midway through her listing she hilariously shares some of their ‘best’ times together.
“In all fairness, I’ve had some pretty good times with this car. It’s never let me down, except for the upcoming MOT, and we’ve shared some good memories,” she says.
“My puppy puking everywhere in it, being pulled over for drink driving when I was actually just driving and dancing to Kate Bush erratically and getting a 6ft children’s slide into it. Impressive, I know.
She concludes the advert by highlighting why the unreliable wheels would prove to be a good first car for any teens.
“If you’re a Dad reading this, I think it’s a good buy for your teenager as it will teach them patience,” she suggests.
“They also won’t be able to go over 80mph without it sounding like they’re going to break down.
“It just needs a little love and I can’t give it to it because I f***ing hate the thing.”
The woman, whose eBay user name is Sphlchwns, had the avert pulled down by eBay just hours before the auction ended with a highest bid of £2,250 due to expletives.
