"The car had a cylinder two misfire. Upon inspection, it was found that it had a bent push rod and valve. Mechanic said it would need an engine overhaul. The price of repair to an engine compared to the overall value of the car would not be justifiable for us to do. May be fixable to someone else with the ability to do so and for cheaper but, with labor costs, it would be too much for us. "
"The odometer is broken at 114,000 miles. I bought it two years ago when it had 110,000 miles on it. The car shutters while accelerating and idles heavily. There is a foot-long crack at the base of the main windshield. One of the rear wheels or hubs makes a whirring sound when the car accelerates over 50mph or when you are on the highway. There is rust on the rear wheel wells as well as around the base of the car."
"The truck runs. There are no major issues with the engine. I'm junking it because it won't pass smog and I don't have the cash to fix it so it can. The interior is dirty from sitting parked for three months but not torn. A little elbow grease will have it looking sharp. I already have another car, so the extra cash would come in handy, especially with Christmas on the way."
"It's a good car. I'm only going to junk it because it's going to cost too much to get the lost title and redo the exhaust to make it pass emissions (Custom exhaust isn't allowed in Colorado)."
"I am separated from my husband. It was our family vehicle. When we separated, I got the car but the title is under my husband's name and he says he doesn't know where it is. I can't do anything with it and want to sell it as junk. I have no use for it in its condition."
"I rear ended the vehicle in front of me and can't afford to get my car fixed. Car has fairly new tires and has a new muffler as of September of 2014. There is no flood or fire damage to car but your form that is on the accept info states yes to fire/flood damage and that is not correct. "
