Here is the skinny on this car:

Good to Go: This Mariner is pretty decent looking inside and out with just normal wear and tear. The front tires are about 30% and the rear tires are about 50%. The motor sounds pretty decent. The radio works but the LED light for the radio doesn't come on. The sunroof, windows, turn signals, wipers, horn and cruise all work. I didn't hear any suspension noise as I drove it up the hill. The brakes are solid. It shifts through all the gears the way it should.

Take a Look at: It looks like the previous owners did paint a couple small rust spots black which I think both inhibits the rust and makes it look better. It has a service emission system light on the dash and sometimes starts out a little sluggish, but then comes out of it. Sometimes it is worse than other times. We replaced the fuel filter and it didn't really change anything. It has a check engine light (P0353 Ignition Coil C Primary/Secondary Ciruit). The oil change will be due shortly. The AC is blowing hot as of 8/13/21. There feels like there is a little bit of a vibration in the front end. At this time, we are still unsure of the cause of the sluggishness and we drastically reduced the price for a mechanic sale. It may be a simple fix that is just beyond us or it may be something bigger. Please bring a trailer to take this one home. It is NOT a ready to go vehicle. After my video test drive, it only got worse.

My wife and I run a small used car dealership in Fort Madison, IA. We have found the greatest need is in cheap, affordable transportation. We try to sell our vehicles as cheap as we can. Our business model is simple...Sell more cars for less, and we know prices sell. So, due to our wholesale pricing we can not hold vehicles nor accept any payment other than cash. Our biggest goal is ''To put people in a better place''. We will be honest, and upfront with you. We will not hound you on the lot if you're just here to look, nor will we play games with our prices. We are a no-haggle dealer and put a lot of pride in being BLUNT and UPFRONT. We don't offer any financing as we truly believe in the long run that won't help a short term problem. Be honest with us and we will do our best to help you find your next vehicle--even if that's not buying one from us.

Prices are firm. The price listed on the website is the price you pay. We do not add any extra hidden fees in your purchase like other dealers. The only time we charge fees is if by request of the customer, we sometimes assist with DOT services. We truly do no haggle pricing. We know price sells, and we don't want to waste any of your time so we will put our best price out there for you. When (usually 4-6 weeks after owning) we go lower on price. this is not a guarantee but an example.
