I got on one of those "WE WILL BUY YOUR CAR" sites and had this conversation, crazy! Cheapskates!!
[Claire] Hi, I'm available to answer any questions at 888-919-7536. What kind of car do you have?
[Visitor] Hi, I have a 1998 Jeep Cherokee Limited. Nice Jeep, but has a bad cylinder n ow.I DO not have the money to get another engine. And it of course,won't pass a smog check with the check engine light on. The body is straight, great paint, ok interior with all options. I have had it almost a year now. I paid $3000 for this thing and wanted to try and get that out of it, but I don't see that happening! Thanks!
[Claire] What city are you in?
[Claire] OK one sec
[Claire] Does it still drive or turn on at all?
[Visitor] Yes, it drives great on the highway, has a rough idle due to a bad #5 cylinder. Has a new head, new brakes, new radiator and rear tires. I have been using it for a lot of long trips, but really, I found something else and would use the money partially for that other vehicle.
[Claire] OK How many miles does it have?
[Visitor] Has 155,000 miles, and 6500 mileson the new head. also has a new track bar/shocks.
[Andre] what is your zip code?
[Visitor] If one drops a good lower end in it, it will be a great vehicle as it has no other problems. Transmission shifts good and has a good rear differential. I also just need to get a bigger vehicle, this one is a bit too small for the times I need to haul something
[Andre] We can buy this vehicle for $200, plus a free pick up and we take care of the paperwork.
[Visitor] Are you serious? No, the parts alone (ask any Jeep person) are worth $1500. With what I paid for it and what I have into it, can't let it go for THAT low, thanks!
