Those Carvana ads running on TV lately look pretty inviting. Maybe you've seen them. They go like this:
"Many of life's moments are being put on hold. At Carvana, we understand that for some, getting a car just can't wait."
We're just four seconds in and already getting a glimpse of a flatbed truck on a leafy street carrying your next car to your driveway.
The message from there: Shop online from the comfort of your couch. Get your car with touchless delivery. And, because times are what they are, you'll get up to 90 days to make that first payment
All is bliss. With no mention of the fact that this will be a used car, touched a zillion times by a previous owner. (Yes, Carvana's website does note "vehicle sanitization" as part of the delivery process.)
