"Just junking it to pay college loans. Also, the previous owner signed the title over to me but I haven't put it under my name, yet. Buyers box on the title is blank. "
"The transmission seals are leaking and I can't afford to repair it. The front passenger side has a crumple near the light due to someone backing into me. The tires are maybe a year and a half old. I replaced the radiator last fall and had lots of repairs done. It should run well after the transmission repairs but, again, I can't afford to have them done."
"Leaking oil. Estimated repairs are over $1,000. Mechanic listed front head gasket, power steering fluid leak, overdue for a timing belt, and water pump as well."
"Breaks need a little work but are working just fine for me right now. I am moving back to another state in two weeks. I want to junk the car before I leave. "
"I also have the replacement engine and transmission that I need to get rid of as well. The only lights missing are the headlights. Three tires will hold air long enough to roll for a day but the fourth popped off the bead. It used to be a very nice honeymooner rental vehicle."
"It can start but I lost the keys. I would need to go to the DMV to get the title and the windshield wiper motor went out, which killed the battery. New clutch in 2009. It's been sitting for about two years. We can get into the car, though. Also, the car is parked at my sister's house in another state. "
