"It has it's engine, transmission and battery. It won't stay running after just a few seconds. It has about 178,000 miles on it. It's a four door, it has decent interior, and all of the mirrors and glass are intact."
"The vehicle runs and drives well, but there is an electrical short in the center console. The passenger airbag is also blown from the short. The engine and transmission have been replaced as well. The transmission was replaced at 207,000 miles, and the engine was replaced at 210,000. The transmission has 155,000 miles on it, and the engine has 175,000 miles on it. I had the engine inspected by a mechanic, and I had the oil samples sent off to a lab to check the engine. The results came back with less than normal wear and tear."
"The small passenger window is broken. Upon my return home, I had a vehicle that was left in my driveway by an acquaintance of mine. She has since moved back to another state and gave the vehicle to me, since it's not running. So, I'm looking to make a little cash and junk the vehicle all at once."
"The car was wrecked and the sub-frame is shifted slightly. The front bumper is damaged and so is the rear. The engine runs great, but the transmission doesn't have 4th gear. Now, there seems to be electrical issues as well. However, it does start. "
"It either needs a U-joint, or the transmission is getting ready to drop. I don't have anyone to look at it, and I can't afford to take it to the shop. The vehicle is free of flood and fire damage. I read the question wrong."
"The car stopped starting last Thursday. I took it to a mechanic in town, and he said that the timing belt had broken and done damage to the engine. He recommended junking it to a company like yours. The car has 153,884 miles on it. "
