"I bought the car from a friend who bought it from an auction. Since I got it, I've had transmission problems. It's drivable to a certain extent but needs work. The only panel missing on the outside is the bumper. The person I bought it from lost the title but understands why I'm junking it. The deck player is gone, and there's a little rust to the emergency brake gear."
"Please call me about the title. Two of the five blocks are filled out by a would-be purchaser from September of 2015 which is my ex-girlfriend. She totaled the car without legally transferring the title. It sits in my yard, and I want it gone."
"My mother lives in another state and will fax over her license. I was driving the vehicle, but it's in her name, and we need to junk it due to me moving from this house. We are looking to junk it for cash this week. "
"The vehicle just won't start. It ran great one day, and the next morning it wouldn't start. I cant get the title yet. It is registered to me. I need some cash for an emergency. Please help. "
"The vehicle's heads might be gone on the motor, or it may be the head gasket. I'm not sure what it is. I just don't want to put any more cash into it. The transmission still works. Everything is still in the car except for the radio. It's still a full car."
"I believe the transmission is going out, or it's just the oil leak that's making it sputter. It just got new brakes and wheel bearings, and the front chassis were replaced as well. I just need a new car. "
