Is it really a complement for a second hand car advertisement to say that a car has been owned and driven by a lady?
Many advertisers of second hand cars use this strategy to attract a buyer hoping that the buyer will perceive that a car formerly owned and driven by woman is in better condition that a car formerly driven by a man.
It should be on case-to-case basis, but generally, that claim is not true. Many of the second hand car buyers still prefer that the car should be owned and driven by a man. It might be true that a lady is more caring on the external beauty of her car and drive more carefully than a man does, but I won’t believe if it will be said that a lady is more caring to the internal parts and structure of a car, particularly the engine, than a man.
Some say that a man is more mechanical than a woman. I also believe that, in nature, man is more mechanical than woman (Note that this is not discrimination because I believe that women are generally better than men in other fields that are naturally suitable to them). And a person who is more enthusiastic to the mechanics of a car’s engine is more aware of the proper operations and maintenance of a car, which is very inessential to its life and daily running condition.
In any case, I guess both external and internal beauty of the car have equal importance. Thus, it wouldn’t be a compliment or a critism if a second hard car was formerly owned by a lady.
