"Dead battery at the moment from sitting. Alternator possibly needs to be replaced. Fair amount of body damage, interior not so pretty either, but it does run. It's great on gas and reliable, except for sometimes when reverse sticks."
"I had the vehicle running a month ago and got a flat tire. After the long duration of cold and snow, the engine will not turn over. The electronics won't come on either, which makes me think that it's a dead battery. I recently got a new car and have to junk this one due to it not moving and sitting in my apartment complex's parking lot. They want to tow it. It has a new radiator and also needs some work on front suspension."
"Truck has broken spindle which is affecting right front passenger side. The tire is inflated but the car is undrivable. Car is to be picked up from local dealer, so there is some urgency to arrange a quick pick up."
"I bought the car because it was quick and cheap. When I bought the car, it ran great. I was going around a turn one night and got blinded by a truck with its brights on and I hit a ditch. It didn't dent, it just busted something around the oil pan area and it leaks oil. Me and a friend thought we fixed it but it kept leaking oil. I think I have a slung rod but it could also have a blown gasket. The motor might be locked up."
"The vehicle has a knock in the engine area. I have recently replaced all brake pads and rotors, heater core, transmission with 40,000, 60% of tire remaining, clean interior with no rips, no body damage, small dent in rear bumper, no check engine light on, just passed smog with current registration."
"It's been wrecked and needs a new passenger side quarter panel. I think the bumper is also beat in. Last summer when temps reached 100 + the vehicle overheated. I put in a new radiator and the AC Compressor is about 4 years old."
