Luz from Georgetown, who makes a living as a DEA agent, submitted her 1989 Toyota Camry Dx to The Clunker Junker recently. She had her title ready to go and there weren't any flat or missing rims or tires. The vehicle had approximately 183,000 miles on the odometer when The Clunker Junker bought it and there is moderate body damage on the vehicle such as paint damage, cracks, rust, etc. Her car wasn't able to start and was not drivable. We towed her car away at no cost on Aug 28 and paid her $200 payment right there at the time of pickup.
"Odometer reads 160,930. The vehicle has cracked molding, a cracked windshield, some tears in the seat, discolored/scratches in paint, other general signs of sitting unused. The engine has a transmission problem, oil leak, and signs of sitting idle for a long period. Battery was salvaged for another vehicle. Vehicle has a four cylinder engine. "
Here's what Luz had to say about her 1989 Toyota Camry and about us:
It was fully there, there was nothing removed from the engine bay, inside of the vehicle, etc. Only some broken molding pieces.
There are several rust spots and a little dent on the passenger fender. A man rolled into me at the movie theater.
Unfortunately, yes. The moonroof glass is cracked and a bit of moisture got inside. I put a bag over it, but it smells a little musty, like some mold got on the interior.
The tires were pretty low on tread, but they were all there and full of air. The car definitely could have used a new set of tires, though!
Well I was looking to sell the car for at least $300, however I now we're told that offers were based on scrap metal prices and includes free removal. The Clunker Junker payed me $200 cash for my 1989 Toyota Camry. It was lower than I expected, but I’m thrilled they towed it free of charge so that was nice.
"Vehicle has over 200,000 miles. Check engine light is on. I suspect an emissions problem that has been persistent. Car needs new brakes but is otherwise driving very well. I continue to drive it daily. "
"The car has a blown head gasket and will start and run enough to be moved around after jumping the battery. The power steering pump is out too. I would love to keep it and fix it but it would cost more than the car is worth."
"Almost 400,000 miles but still drives. Been sitting for six months. Still runs to the best of my knowledge. It ran a little rough at times but never stalled or anything like that. "
"The ignition won't turn over for the car to come on. Signed title over to boyfriend. I have the car but the title has not come back yet."
"Motor had a knock so we parked it. Car is missing a rim and tire on driver front, spare on other side. Intake has been removed but all parts are inside the vehicle. Car has 129,384 miles on it."
"I can no longer afford to have it fixed. Salvaged title. Mileage: 165,312. Replaced the following: axle shaft assembly, distributor, radiator, oil pressure switch, alternator, brakes shoe/pads, engine/trans axle mounts, starter assembly, front/rear calipers, catalyst converter, muffler, & fan motor.
