so
They say the transmission seal/seals are bad and they were going to donate the car.

I said "ha, what are they gonna give you for it?"
They said "Three hundred dollar tax writeoff."
i said "ill give you 400.00 cash for it."
they said "SOLD"



so im buying a sable for 400.00 woo hoo
anything i should know about the transmissions before i start on this thing
im just gonna fix it and sell it for $5000 cause im about to loose my job, and need the money .
the KBB says its worth 8700 so i think someone will snatch it up for 5000 real quick (i hope).

thanks any advice would help

Spend 1500 on a trans rebuild and sell it for 5 grand. It's a profitable venture, I'd say. And that's IF the trans is really bad. Could be some fluke sensor issue, and they dumped the car for nothing. Check it out, and let us know what happens with it. :thumb:

Holy crap yes. $400 for an '05 with a bad tranny?! I mean, wow. No resale value at all. :(

Not completely outlandish. A member in houston had his trans on his 05 vulcan sable fail at 32k, I believe. I imagine it was the ax4n saying "HOW DARE YOU UPGRADE ME?!", in reaction to the 4r50n (or whatever they're called) updates.
