Buying a used Car

30

Asked by Aug 24, 2016 at 08:54 PM about the 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Is a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 250,000 miles
for $500 a good buy? On Craigslist says the front
seats are worn and have tears but runs well.
Please if anyone can help me with buying a car, id
be forever grateful as my car just got repoed last
week. Thank you.

If it's safe, runs good, isn't rusted out, and are just looking for "A to B" transportation I'd say grab it. If you get 6 months out of it you got your $500 worth! Might be just the thing to get you over the financial hump. I wouldn't put any money in it though. HTH. -Jim

That's too bad. Well then, keep shopping. When something like that happens to me I chalk it up to it wasn't the car for me! Good luck with your search! -Jim

In my opinion a high mileage Jeep of any model can be trouble. It may be a good thing it's gone.
