"The battery is dead but, before I left it sitting, it ran very rough. I'm sure after a tune-up it would run just fine but I'd like to get it out of my driveway because I bought a new truck and have no use for this car anymore."
"The car recently stopped running, as in it won't get into gear and drive anywhere, but it is possible to turn the engine on and let it run. It makes a terrible grinding noise when running and won't stay in gear (not even park, so I have to have the emergency break pulled up to stop the car from rolling). "
"Honestly, the car runs well and it's dependable for short distances. It needs minor cosmetic repairs/replacements inside, such as door panels that need to be installed, but I have the panels and parts bought already. Never been in an accident or anything that would do damage to the body."
"I busted the timing belt on the car and started to take the engine apart to repair. In the meantime, a branch fell on the car, breaking the windshield, and I decided to discontinue the repair of the vehicle. I marked yes to flood damage because there is a chance the car had rain in it after breaking the windshield. "
"I'm actually not certain if the truck will start. My dad recently passed away and I am the trustee of his will. He was unable to continue driving approximately two years ago and the truck has been sitting in his yard since then. I have not tried to start it, yet."
"The visor for the passenger is missing. The reason we are looking at junking the car is that the cylinders are worn and I am not looking at replacing the engine. The tires are new, I had the timing belt replaced, and the water pump was also replaced not too long ago. I had to replace the front strut spring on the drivers side and I have the match for the passenger side. "
