Hi all! We are trying to come to a decision on whether we trade our car for a used car from a friend and need some advice. Here’s the situation
First my husband is in grad school and we need the least amt of problems with our car as possible.
We have one year to go so hoping for something that can last us 1-2 years.
Currently we have a 2002 Hyundai Elantra GT . It has 143K miles on it. We have replaced radiator, tires, whole rear brake system in the last year. Also been told there is a leak ( oil) around main gasket ) and that if it continues could cost us more than car is worth.
Our friend is selling his 19998 NIssan Maxima with 223k miles on it and loves the car , only selling bc they were given a car that fits there family better. He says he has had no issues with it since he bought in 2006. When he did buy then it had a small radiator leak but hasn’t changed since then ( 5 years) and mechanic says it’s fine.
Also we would like something a little bigger…maxima gives us this.
Advice? Would you trade?
