Hi All, I am looking to know if anyone has ever heard of swapping cars ? I have a 1.6 Black Toyota Corolla - 3 door sporty model with alloys and am looking to swap for a diesal car or a lower model due to increasing driving demands for work and increasing petrol!! If anyone has any ideas on this topic or suggestions you might let me know cheers xx

I haven't done it myself but a friend's BIL has done it a few times. I think if you go on to DoneDeal etc you might come across it....if you have no luck I'll ask her about it!

I haven't come across any offical car swap website but I have seen a few ads on DoneDeal that will swab or trade for another car.. I would imagine it would be unlikely that someone would want to swap a newer car for an older one though, and there is a lot of people changing from petrol to diesel now as its cheaper to run.... But good luck anyway!

On the changing from petrol to diesel thing, I wouldn't go that way myself. Diesel may be cheaper, but diesel engines are more expensive to look after and fix if they break. Also there is a lot of dirty diesel around these days messing up peoples engines, you do have to be very careful where you buy it and I would be very reluctant to buy or take on a second hand diesel due to not knowing how careful the owner may have been about where they get their diesel.
