$1250 for a 1986 Plymouth Reliant K car good deal or shit?
it's got 125,000 kms or close to it, pretty good condition as my grandpa used to own it and rarely drove it, now it's in my moms possession. i asked for a deal as i'm poor, have no house, no spousal support. was hoping to buy for around 5-600, she would go as low as $1250, gee thanks mom. Good deal or waste of money?

I think the Blue book value on that is about $4.
$1250 is way high for an 86 k-car.

Sounds like you couldn't afford to rebuild the transmission every 3 months as needed.

Look for an accord or corolla of the same model year.

Tell mom to snap out of it. It's a K car for pete's sake. And it's old to boot. Time passing makes trouble for cars, not just high miles.

Not only is your mother cruel, but psychotic as well. The "K" car series from Chrysler is only good for storing junk out behind your house because while it might run good now, the onboard computer will fail at some point. The amount of sensors (which if one fails the car will not run anyway) incorporated into this "car" make it an unreliable means of transport, good only for the truly depraved or sadomasochistic who enjoy pushing a vehicle more than they drive it. Save your money for a good car and leave this turd sit.

I had a 84' Plymouth Reliant. Never had to rebuild the trany. I put 132,000 miles on it.

That car is worth $800 tops. If your grandfather owned it, he probably didn't drive the car everytime to the point that the moisture had evaporated out of the engine.

Do a blue book value on it.

Goto this website, an 1987 is the closest you will get to your age of car but that will give you a pretty close value. Print it off & take it to your mother. I wouldn't give more than $800 for it.

what about the barenaked ladies song with the lyric

'k car a reliable automobile'

also if it only has 125 k on it, and owned by a grandpa who rarely drove it, it might be in prestine condition and maybe worth up to $1500

We had a Yugo. Drove it for about a week, then a linkage in the trany broke. It was made of a hard plastic & couldn't be fixed.

You actually bought a Yugo?

The Yugo came with the optional winter upgrade package which consisted of a rear window de-icer. This was to keep your hands warm while your were pushing it to the garage.

I sold one of these 8 years ago for $700 and it was in pretty decent shape at the time. Your mom's price is at least double what it should be.
