What do you mean by a "clean swap?" If you're going to try and trade your Rogue in for a Cube and not have to pay any money out of pocket, I don't see that happening. There are a lot of factors to consider including trade-in value that a dealer will offer you along with how much you owe on the car if you're financing it.

That's not how dealers look at it. You'd be better off selling the Rogue privately and then purchasing the Cube.

Is there any particular reason why you're looking to downsize?

According to Kelly Blue Book, the private party value (if you sell it yourself) is $17525. That's the standard equipment (I didn't add or take away any equipment). Trade in is $15 or so and the dealership will list it (in excellent condition) for about $20000.

Check for yourself on cars.com...........click on bluebook value and plug in your vehicle and equipment. Easy to do. :yes:

Check edmunds too, as the person above suggested.

Even though it's a Nissan (one of their own), they'll probably try to steal it from you. You'd have to get really lucky to do an even-up or even close...............THAT said, no harm in trying........you can always walk, and then wait for the phone to ring. You could get lucky, but I wouldn't count on it. You could come close. You could detail it all up, advertise it for $18 and then let it go for $17. Keep in mind the economy at this point, but there are STILL people who need and want cars.
