Done Deal FAILS

Found an ad that makes you despair?

We have the dreamers thread, the skangerwagons thread, now is the time for the dregs of online car ads to be revealed!
Zero useful info, contradictory, or just plain ridiculously incorrect? Photo's taken on a dark foggy night with a 1megapixel camera? Ridiculous gimmicks or photos to attract attention to an incomprehensible txt spk ad? Post it here:

Mazda Carisma - first to see will buy
http://cars.donedeal.ie/for-sale/cars/1702759

Mazda 323d
http://cars.donedeal.ie/for-sale/cars/1702364


"good strong jeep i is 99 aND HAS 146 K ON IT NOTHING to one of these its"
http://cars.donedeal.ie/for-sale/cars/1702019
It's what exactly? This guy has turned the usual donedeal shopping list of makes and models on it's head by including ZERO info as to what make or model engine or or spec the "jeep" is. OK, so I know what model it is but help other people out like...

Corolla estate, photo's taken by scuba divers at the bottom of a slurry pit
http://cars.donedeal.ie/for-sale/cars/1700377

You'd wonder sometimes wouldn't you?

I think what is more disturbing about that Corolla advert other than the pathetic effort of taking photos in the dark to hide a bucket of sh1te is the fact the seller probably thinks it is worth close to the €950 asking price.

Mazda Carisma is my favourite. Sweet Jesus, too lazy to type Mitsubishi or complete failure to transcribe make and model?
Ring her up and ask would she swap for a VW Focus?

A FAIL for me :

Ran a search for a Passat, in the results was a add for TRD/Turd badges, to pimp your best built car in the world

Really hate that Donedeal search function.
