Would you buy a pre-loved car?

If you are sick of seeing used cars or second-hand cars being given the name "pre-owned" cars,

 how do you feel about the euphemism "pre-loved" cars?

That's how ridiculous the second-hand car industry has become.

What's wrong with these people?  I call my bicycle a bike or if I have to be specific, a mountain bike and you will never catch me calling it a two-wheeled love machine.
