"I am getting a new car. This car has paint that is coming off. The trunk and the bumper had to be replaced. It needs a new battery, so it cannot be driven now due to the battery being dead. It happened when the weather got cooler. I believe the battery was weak."
"The passenger side mirror is held on by wire. The transmission was rebuilt/replaced approximately 40,000 miles ago by the previous owner. The engine seized up due to a teenager continuing to drive it after the oil light warning."
"The car runs and drives. It has some minor mechanical issues, and it will need brakes, rotors, the left blinker does not work correctly (will not blink), and the A/C does not work. The car is very rusty, and it has rear end damage. This was my daughter's first car. We have purchased something newer, and we're looking to junk this one for cash."
"The vehicle is in OK condition. The sun roof leaks, the rear taillight sensor interferes with the automatic locks, and the FWD transmission is not operational. The reverse transmission is operational, the body is in good condition. The front struts are bad, the front right ball joint or suspension may be bad, the heater core needs to be replaced, and the radiator is cracked and patched."
"The car is in great shape and clean inside and out. It needs a timing belt for it to run. Underneath the hood is even clean. I'm getting another car, but I still have this one registered and insured. So, I need to junk it before the other one comes, because I have nowhere to park all the vehicles after I switch the plates to the new vehicle. I can't park it in the street. I need to junk this one for cash to put the new one on the road. Everything is under the hood, but it does not turn over. The timing belt went. It was driveable until less than a week ago."
"The vehicle may start, but it won't drive. It's been sitting in our driveway for over a year. The front tire is flat, because it's been sitting for so long. It is a Grand Caravan, it's silver, and it has leather seats. It has bucket seats and one bench in the back. It has a lot of miles on it."
