[DML] Re: 2001 Rebuild "fast" Delo on eBay



Refurbished is usually referred to furniture,as in redoing antique 
furniture.
Or a electronic item,that was defective or returned and refurbished 
to as original condition to resell(at a lower price than the exact 
NEW item)

With cars it is usually referred to as restored/rebuilt/OEM etc.

Refurbished in car terms usually is a word scammers  use to try to 
pawn off as restored/rebuilt,when in fact nothing or very little was 
done,usually a wax job/degreasing/tune-up..cover-up rust(usually 
with cheap bondo) painting( body panels) or the undercarriage to 
seem as new,(a lot of used car lots "refurbish cars")to make the car 
seem restored or rebuilt to as new. Which again is nothing but a 
scam,to make the car look better than it really is,and to fetch a 
MUCH higher price!! To put the value in the highest rate as in the 
NADA book.

 Basically it is used to  attract the unwary consumer into buying 
the car..that if left as it was originally,they would in no way had 
bought it. But again usually not to improve the longevity of the 
car,but just to make a quick buck.
