ADDENDUM: Last night, on Faceboob, I saw an ad in their marketplace for a 2001 Jeep Cherokee. It was basically the Jeep Cherokee I have, one year newer, and in a lot better shape. A lot less wear and tear, half the mileage. White exterior, grey interior. Looked great to me.

It sure looked like it was in good shape, though. *sigh*
