Old for Old? - Don W Brown
I have a Vectra 1.8LS Apr 96 N and done 59k miles in good condition. A local dealer is selling a Primera 1.6 N reg (with ABS) which has done only 21.5k miles by a one owner 'retired gentleman'. Its also good though the bonnet needs respray. They have it advertised at £4695 which is high even accounting for the mileage I think.
I had it in mind to swop and end up with a low miler that I could run for another 4 years thus delaying the new car purchase and over-pricing issue.
The dealer offered £3800 for my Vectra in exchange. Have you a view on the relative valuations and the merits of swop idea?
Regards Don

Never swap old for old.

An old car is an old car however many miles it has travelled.

A car which has done 140,000 miles in a year will be in better mechanical condition than one which has done 14,000 miles in 10 years.
