    2002 Oldsmobile Alero

    "The surface of the steering wheel is deteriorating, back bumper has a dent, top left ABS sensor is inactive, the motor is junk, and I believe that is all. Battery, oil rack and some of the hub and bearing were recently installed. "

  • Clay's 1999 Ford F150
    1999 Ford F150

    "The rocker panel under passenger door is rusted through. The rest of the body looks good. A rocker arm broke and the engine has lifter tap. The F-150 also has an aluminum commercial utility cap with two compartments on one side and bed access on the other."

  • Bryan's 2003 Mazda Protege
    2003 Mazda Protege

    "The vehicle has a dead solenoid, a misfiring piston, a rusted oil pan, leaky oil gasket, and some other smaller issues that the Austin Auto Repair guys said would be more than $1600 dollars to repair. I'd rather just get a new car than pay that much to fix the old junk one."

  • Lyndi's 1990 Honda Accord
    1990 Honda Accord

    "The radiator went out a couple of months ago. since then I have replaced spark plugs, fluids, air filter, fuel pump, and the spark plugs again yesterday due to car not starting. All this to find the new radiator was void of fluid and the condition of the spark plugs was bad. I think the last time it overheated because of the radiator was too hard on the motor because it won't turn over. All happened very suddenly. "

  • Josh's 1985 Dodge Ram Van
    1985 Dodge Ram Van

    "The keys were stolen, but that doesn't really matter because the battery is dead. The power steering pump doesn't work. There are no back seats, just the driver and passenger seats. It will run with the key and battery replaced."

  • Tiffany's 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier
    2003 Chevrolet Cavalier

    "I was told the engine was blown, but I can't really confirm that. The last time I had the vehicle it was running. I basically "bottomed out" in it and was told the entire transmission needed replacement by a highly reliable source. Then a gentleman who does side jobs told me the engine was bad as well. Now it is at his home in Wichita Falls, texas at risk of being towed any day now. "
