Here is what other cash for cars customers have said:

  • Brady's 1995 Toyota Pickup
    1995 Toyota Pickup

    "Vehicle wasn't running due to the rod bearings being put in backwards by previous owner, so the motor and crank got messed up. I have a bill of sale from previous owner, as well as lost title form. "

  • Ivory's 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix
    1995 Pontiac Grand Prix

    "You could start the car but the part where you pull to pop the hood is broken and there is one flat tire. The power steering is out, so you have to keep putting power steering fluid in the car."

  • Katina's 1995 Nissan Quest
    1995 Nissan Quest

    "New water pump and thermostat. New starter, alternator, and battery. Head gasket is blown. Need to put a down payment on another vehicle. I have a child with leukemia and I need to transport him to the clinic for treatments."

  • Spencer's 1997 Saturn SL
    1997 Saturn SL

    "It was in a small fender bender, pushing back the radiator a couple inches, crunching the hood a little, and breaking the lights. The hood won't close without pulling out the front and straightening out the cross-member holding the radiator. Still runs and can be driven to where it needs to go."

  • Garret's 2002 Volkswagen Jetta
    2002 Volkswagen Jetta

    "The car has been sitting in my garage all winter because the solenoids in the valve body of the transmission are sticking causing the car to not shift out of 1st gear. The solenoids will eventually start working after letting the car run for a long time and then the transmission works normally. I started it right before winter and it ran but it sounded like it was misfiring. It also has one flat tire in the front left due to some corrosion on the rims. Those are the only issues with the car. Timing belt/water pump were replaced at 110k miles, regular oil changes, all maintenance done at a reputable shop."

  • Ben's 2000 Chrysler Cirrus
    2000 Chrysler Cirrus

    "The Cirrus has over 185,000 miles on it. The Struts and Shocks have never been replaced and need it now. The check engine list is on, but from my research it's just a sensor that regulates the gas and isn't a big deal. I was driving the car up until last week when I purchased a newer vehicle."
