    "The only thing missing on the inside is the radio, which was stolen. The dents are on the driver's door from it being broken into. I'm not sure why it does not run it could be something simple. I bought a new car and this one has been sitting on my lot at work so I want to try and junk is asap."

    "I believe the water pump is bad and it has caused me to have to replace the radiator several times. The engine is fine but it won't start up because of this problem. I feel I'd rather just junk it than try to fix it. The passenger side fender has a bad scrape and has knocked out the light. There is also a large dent on the passenger side door. "

  • Sharon's 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse
