Auto salvage yards often act like they are doing you a huge favor in buying your junk car, as if it is worthless. Because of this, they will try to lowball you and give you a fraction of what the vehicle is worth. Often times, unscrupulous junkyard dealers will even try to tell you that the car is worth nothing, but they will take it off your hands for you for free.
Salvage yards are also notorious for making you one offer when you call them and tell them about your car, but then trying to lower that offer after you show up with your car. Even worse, junkyards have a reputation for failing to transfer over the car’s title into their possession which could end up causing you to still be liable for the vehicle.

"It needs a $2000 repair, but I can't think of what it's called. Basically they need to take the engine apart. There are four tires I paid almost $600 for on it that only have about 5k miles of wear."
"Can only access entry when locked through the passenger sliding door. The drivers window just was rolled down and won't go back up three days ago. Son had been using it to get to and from work the past several months and has another vehicle. It squeals when you first start it, possibly needs a pulley?"
"The front right tires' axle or wheel bearing broke in the front right tire. U=It is moveable, but not drivable over a couple blocks. It could be got on a trailer no problem"
"The vehicle needs back breaks and new tires. New battery, power steering pump, radiator, all new fluid tubs, and a rebuilt transmission. I paid $1,800 for it and put over $4,000 into it. I am not fixing it anymore, just junking it to get a new vehicle. Need it gone ASAP."
"This car has a damaged head gasket. It is drivable but has not been driven in some time. It has two tires with less than 10,000 miles and it has a newly replaced alternator."
"The front end has damage and I think one of the headlights is out or missing. I am at work and can't look at the moment. We were told it has a leaky head gasket and it can't be driven very far at a time but it does start and run. I think it needs brakes and probably other things we are not even aware of. We don't feel it's a safe vehicle to drive that, is why we want to junk it. "
