Should i buy this?
 
I am currently emailing a guy about this grand cherokee:

i plan on selling mine for 4k and buying if after i test drive it and all that stuff.
This is the email i recieved a couple days ago after asking for more info.

Hello,
My 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee is in great shape. It was always garaged and never been damaged. It has no scratches, dents or something like that. No mechanical problems, clean title in hand. It does not need anything additional to function. Has only 94,099 miles.

My asking price for this car is $2800 US.
Have a nice day!
Robert




Pros: -Newer vehicle
-Will only need about $600 worth of mods (stereo and headlights)
-Higher resale value
-My current jeep needs around $1500 worth of work to be where i want it to be.
- has 40k less miles on it
-i would actually make some money ($500)
If i could sell mine for 4k i would be able to put it on the road and do all the mods i want to do.

What do you guys think?

I would never in my life buy a vehicle that is the same as the one I just got out of, lol. Seems really silly to me.

Also, selling yours for $4,000 is by no means a certain. If this Jeep is located in your area, then obviously, someone will purchase this Jeep before they purchase yours. Market value = how much someone is willing to pay for a good or service, not what a computer tells you.

Also depends on where you are with your current loan.

Looks like a great deal Ry but make sure you check it out first before you sell your current jeep but if everything adds up and looks good I would do it in a heartbeat bro.Good Luck on it.

Not to be a dick, but I think you are going to have a hard time getting 4K for your '99. I sold my '00 a couple years ago for less than 2k. The price on that '02 seems fair to me.

yeah. i will def look at it and test drive it and what not before i think about buying it. If he would hold it for me i will try to sell mine for 4k OBO for about 2 weeks then if i dont get any good offers in that time period then i would just tell the guy to sell it. i mean i know it sounds too good to be true but you never know this guys situation. But i figured i could atleast give it a look.

Right, but if you're still upside down on your loan, then it most certainly matters; At least from a financial standpoint.
