"My Protege has just over 100,000 miles. The vehicle was hit in the back right wheel so the top of the tire is slanted in making it not able to be driven. There is a dent as well in the fender above the tire. Otherwise the vehicle is in good shape and running great. Interior is well taken care of and no other body damage to speak of. What kind of cash are you giving for cars in Phoenix?"
"The vehicle was in a accident. The driver's side fender is bent in, the left side of the front bumper is broken and the right mirror and plastic molding are cracked. The left headlight is busted open. Now the acceleration is sluggish and while accelerating, the engine shakes and sounds grinding/hollow. The EPC/Check engine now light comes on and it says Low oil pressure. The gas tank seems to go through gas fast, it's now a "gas guzzler" "
"The Stratus hasn't been run in a about three months. Last time it did run, but rough. It's a junk car which is why i'm looking for a cash for cars program. Seems like the fuel injectors need cleaning and probably new spark plugs."
"This car has had only one owner, myself. I bought it brand new in 2005 with four miles on it. It's been a great little car. I've kept up maintenance with it and it has had no major problems until a couple days ago. It suddenly had a hard knocking coming from the engine and turns out, it sprung an oil leak and it was starved for oil, pretty much killing the engine. The cost to repair it is completely out of our budget. "
"Had a head gasket event, and was pushing exhaust into the coolant system. Car never overheated. I "fixed" it with a bottle of Blue Devil head gasket sealer, new water pump and thermostat. Currently it does not leak water or over pressurize the coolant system. AC works, but compressor clutch bearing is noisy. The car starts, runs and drives. 268K miles, brand new struts and shocks all around. It recently was pampered with an alignment, and good Michelin tires. It's complete with third row seating, cargo cover, floor mats etc. Clean title and two keys/remote fobs in-hand."
"This car has been involved in a collision so the front end is messed up and dented in. The motor and transmission are still good, but the front end will need work "
