owe $4,000.00 on my chevrolet trailblazer SE would like to trade in for a 4 wheel drive truck. But would like to find one for around the price of $7,000.00 good condition. Payment of $300 or $350
I would prefer a Chevrolet but I like Dodges as well. I left another statement
above about keeping the price $7,000.00 or under and in good condition. I
have a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer SE in good condition and would like to use it
as a trade in. I still owe $4,000.00 on the blazer but would really like to trade.
Have a boat and want a truck to pull it. Thank you, Charles Cox
Honestly, Charles, for that kind of money you should be able to get something newer. I always advise against financing older models because of what's down the road. Repairs!! Having a car payment and repairs is no fun!! I've been there!! For now your best options, in my opinion are to keep what you have and pay it off or trade into a lease. Trading into a lease is the only way I know that you can make the balance you owe go away. Unless you can sell the vehicle yourself privately for more than you owe on it. To put things into perspective I bought my '08 Grand Marquis in 2012. I put $3500 cash down and financed the rest for $258 per month for 4 years. I sold my '93 Caprice (which I owned) for $500 privately. That was $200 more than the dealer offered me for the car. The Mercury was only 4 years old with 31,000 miles on it. Now I own it and it's still a great running car. As I said in the beginning, for $300 to $350 per month, you can do much better! HTH. -Jim
Car gurus doesn't sell or finance vehicles, you have to search for what you like and message the seller on the ad page. Click on the tab "used cars" at the top of the screen. Also there is no such things as a Trailblazer SE, just an LS, LT, LTZ, LT EXT. But either way, it's probably worth $1500-$1800 trade in, so figure your going finance $9K if you find a truck for $7K. Good luck!
