Here is the skinny on this car:

Good to Go: The two front tires were replaced in Jan 2021 and the trunk includes a new wheel hub assembly, a new rotor and new brake pads and it appears that one wheel hub assembly and rotor was already replaced. It does run and drive decent and will get you from A to B just fine. I fixed the backseat from the video--it just needed to be put back together. The windows, turn signals, cruise, horn, wipers, and radio all work. It shifts through all the gears just fine. On 8/21/21 We replaced the brake line where there was a leak and the brakes work as they should now.

Take a Look at: This is a rough looking car and it has some dings and rust. The rear tires are about 25%. The driver's side window switch for the passenger side window does not work. The AC does not blow cold. It did pull a little bit on my test drive. I checked this out when I got back. The rust on the frame has created a hole where the ball joint connects. It will need either a new subframe or someone who can weld a plate in there. As of now, this is not a vehicle that should be relied upon as a daily driver. It must be fixed first.

**We rely 100% on our customers to inspect and be certain about the vehicle they are buying**

**Our ''product'' we stand behind is our ability to SELL CHEAP. Above are our notes on this vehicle. We are not mechanics so we rely on our customers opinion. Feel free to bring one directional code readers, tools, or friends to help**

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.
