Regardless of the condition of your vehicle you can sell a car with bad transmission or other major issue. If your car reaches a point when the major repair costs more than the actual value of the car, you need to sell it. Some major problems include a blown engine, leaky gasket head or transmission failure. You cannot just sell the car without disclosing the actual problem as there are laws in place to help protect the buyer.

You should sell a junk car yourself. You will get more money this way than by going to a car dealer or Cash for Cars Inner West . Many people will be interested in this type of car for the parts or want to restore the car. Make sure you are honest with the problems. You can easily avoid issues by selling the car “as is”. With a bad transmission the car can be called a fixer upper or mechanic’s special.

When selling the car yourself have paperwork about the major work that has been done on the car and let the potential buyer know what major or minor problems there might be. Make sure any ad you place in the classifieds, papers or online have details about why the car is not currently operational.

Your engine might be fine but your engine doesn’t run. Wondering what to do with a car that doesn’t run? You could trade it into the dealership and buy a different car.

If you trade in a car that doesn’t run, the dealership will lowball the value. They need to account for the cost to repair the car, whatever that might be. It could be electrical like a crankshaft position sensor. It could be fuel-related like a faulty fuel pump. It could be as simple as a dead battery. But unless your totaled car is running, the dealership will account for the worst-case scenario, and the trade in value will reflect it

Your car starts and runs but it doesn’t drive? It could be a transmission problem. Can you trade in a car with a bad transmission? In many cases, you can. Dealerships are often equipped to fix the problem, but it’s going to cost you on your trade valuation.

Because your car doesn’t drive – or at least, doesn’t drive well – the dealer can’t be sure of the rest of your car’s condition. They’ll play it safe and pay you a penance for your car with transmission problems.

An additional option is go to a local junkyard or local junk removal company. Many of these companies will actually offer you a decent price as they can make a profit on the metal when the car is compressed. The price can be deducted from your taxes and the paperwork is quick.

You should check the telephone book to find a garage that sells second hand parts as they may be interested in purchasing your entire car just for the parts. In this case the bad transmission is not an issue as the car will be taken apart and is not meant for driving.

Don’t waste your money on significant repairs before trading in your vehicle. The dealership you will be negotiating with is in the business of fixing cars for resale, so leave the heavy lifting for them.
