Here’s how we helped Courtney from Visalia, CA sell her used 2005 Suzuki Forenza

Visalia resident Courtney, a Full-charge bookkeeper, sold us her 2005 Suzuki Forenza Ex recently. It had approximately 179,000 miles on the odometer when she sold it and there was moderate body damage on the car such as peeling clear coat, dents, rust, etc. There were no deflated or removed tires or wheels and she was driving the vehicle to and from work with no issues. She didn't have a title but did have a current registration. The Clunker Junker towed her vehicle away free of charge on Aug 27 and gave her $150 payment on the spot at the time of pickup.

We asked Courtney a few questions about her car and her experience with The Clunker Junker

Here's what Courtney had to say about her 2005 Suzuki Forenza and about us:

Were any of the lights, windows, or mirrors damaged or broken?

The rear taillight on the driver's side is dangling, however, it still works. The driver side mirror is also broken as well but it is still there. Besides that, the lights and glass are good.

Did you have the title for your 2005 Suzuki Forenza? If yes, was the title clean or a salvage branded title?

No, I didn't have the certificate of title. It got destroyed in a fire. The Clunker Junker still bought my vehicle without a title, however, I was asked to provide a driver's license with a valid registration.

Did your 2005 Suzuki Forenza have a working battery?

We replaced the battery fairly recently and the battery was working just fine. It started up with no issues.

Was the car free of mechanical issues with the transmission or engine?

Yeah, it had no problem starting pretty much all the time. No issues.

How much cash were you offered for your car from The Clunker Junker?

Well I was hoping to sell it for about $225, but I now we're told that they are giving junk prices and includes free hauling. I walked away with $150 cash for my 2005 Suzuki Forenza. It was less than I wanted, but I’m thrilled they at least towed it for free so that is a relief.

    "The Jeep can still drive but going over 30mph the gears stick. I think the transmission needs to be replaced. To open the trunk you have to hit it in a certain spot to make it open. It has around 220,000 miles on it and the tires will need to be replaced. The interior is missing the head liner and one of the outside panels on the door is missing."
