"I will be removing the car stereo from the center console (it's a custom stereo). The battery is dead, but with a new battery, the engine will start and run with no issues. The car is driveable, but the catalytic converter broke at the weld, so it drags on the ground. "
"I bought the vehicle from a friend, and they said I could use their plate, but I got a newer car and haven't switched anything into my name. The only part of the title that's filled out is the seller part, so the buyer part can still be filled in. "
"The vehicle has a cylinder three misfire in the engine. It will start and everything runs smoothly except for Cylinder three which knocks because it's not igniting. The spark plugs need to be replaced, and one wire to the control box for Cylinder three. After that, this car would run perfectly fine. To a mechanic, this would be an easy fix."
"The vehicle needs an O2 sensor, a windshield washer fluid tank and motor, part of the bumper and a button for the gas tank and the trunk. It's leaking steering fluid, and there's a problem with some ball joint on the front axle. It could be fixed and driven with a couple grand if someone wants a project. "
"The vehicle does run, or at least it did two years ago when it was driven into our garage where it has sat ever since. There may be some frame rusting. It has one flat tire. I have a full, unmounted spare/replacement tire. "
"The title is under my mom's name, but it is my car, and she will bring the title if you guys can offer a reasonable amount of cash. The cash I get from this Nissan is going into my new car."
