We need to trade our 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Edition for an smaller, economicl car for no money down nor any payments. Could this probably be done?possible

Asked by Nov 03, 2015 at 07:59 AM about the 2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser Base

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Due to medical conditions we are retired/disabled and require a more economical  car as I make many trips to the VA clinics, hospital from Milwaukee to Green Bay and Appleton a few times a month, My wife has several localized appointments here in Sheboygan and Manitowauk. Our intention are making an "even" trade with our 2004 Grand Jeep Cherokee Limited edition for a small economical car as a PT Cruiser/Smart Car/ KIA/etc. We were told our Jeep Cherokee has a value of about $4500. If we could make an even swap for like a 2006 PT Cruiser for around $2500 to $3000, an " even"  trade would not burden us with a monthly bill that we really cannot afford at this juncture of our lives. With the equity we have in our Jeep, a more small $2000-$3000 car on a deal could get us some closure on these killer prices for gas, etc.

Thanks for your question, I hope my advice serves you. I would definitely avoid the PT Cruiser, Hyundai, Kia, that you mention. If you want a very economical and dependable car, you cannot go wrong with a Volkswagen Jetta or Golf, especially with the diesel engine. VW gives the benefits of German engineering, very high fuel economy, dependability and a relatively low price. I hope this helps.

OK Kenny, Great sales pitch!! But you didn't answer my question. Can we possibly do an even trade of a 2-3 thousand dollar car (if available) with our 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Edition that was appraised at $4500 dollars. You get the best of the deal. Not quite sure if my wife likes VW but it really depends on the car and deal. We want a clean even exchange with no payments

Chas, you have to find someone/seller willing to trade you, Cargurus doesn't do that for you. I think Kenny was just giving you some information to go on and to stay away from certain used vehicles. This is a question and answer area. Looks like a clean Jeep, Good Luck with the trade.
