Weekend Writing Prompt — Pre-Loved

About a week and a half ago, we traded in our old car for a brand new electric vehicle. I was curious what the dealership would be asking for it, so I went to their website today and saw that they were asking two-thirds more than what they gave us in trade. But what struck me was that they advertised it not as a used car but as a pre-loved car.

(Exactly 71 words)


I’d never heard the term “pre-loved” before today. It’s primarily a marketing or advertising term that means previously owned; secondhand. And then, lo and behold, today Sammi Cox used that term for her Weekend Writing Prompt. Eerie coincidence or what?

    It’s still second hand. But I haven’t bought a brand NEW car in a long time.

    I like the term “ pre-loved” as it implies that the thing was kept with love and care.

    I remember that you did, indeed, love your previous automobile.

    And I hope the car is returning the love with a great ride and excellent fuel economy!
