Well we need to sell this car asap, and we need money asap for a new car.

I was thinking a fair price for the car with the rod knock is 1500 obo

Because it is only 5 years old, with 89k, everything else is perfect.

what you guys think?

That seems fair, replacement engine shouldn't be more than a grand so anyone who just got their income tax back could jump on that lol.

That sucks man, them banks are azz holes. All they care about is their money. I really hope everything goes well for your parents. My dad also went thru something similiar, losing a business I mean. It wasn't easy, and he's still paying for it. So best of luck is where I'm getting at.

2500 and that dealer puts a motor in for cost and bam on the lot for 8k....
Crazy but true. They probably spend $500 or less on that engine and sell the car for the price of a new 1.6 sedan. Probably don't even tell the customer it's a new engine. They know that if they do, that car will never sell. Specially if it doesn't have any warranty.

wow that's cheap

the dealer can fix it and sell it for 7,999.85 plus tax and tittle, and if the person has bad credit, raise the APR to like...18%

lets say 8,000.00 out the door with tax and tittle, 18% APR 203.00 per month for 5 years = 12,189

or if the person has good credit, they can pay Kelly blue book Cash $$$$

it sucks they have to let it go so cheap =(

Yeah i mentioned it to my dad as a option, get a new engine, swap, re sell for a profit, but they need a car stat.
What type of car are they buying. If you have a rod knock on a solid lifter engine, then someone beat the crap outta that car. You will need a 7 yr./100,00mi. warranty next time. Probably the elantra is the ticket. I wish Hyundai would have made the grille of the elantra similar to the sonata. That would have been the ticket. I rented an elantra in Cali last month. We had it for 3 days. Drove it everywhere and only used 9 gallons of gas. Plus it was great in the mountains lotta getup. My opine.
