Let's Make a Deal!! - No reasonable/qualified offer refused

We're interested in trading someone their 2006 or newer Honda Odyssey EX, EX-L or Touring Edition for our 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan - Sport Edition. Yes, a trade of this nature may seem a little lopsided at first glance, but give it some time and I think you'll see the merit.

Our van runs not so bad. Probably wouldn't say great, but pretty good. Yeah, there is a horrific noise when you turn the steering wheel and I'm pretty sure the radio and emergency brake warning light are possessed because they flip on and off on their own volition, but oh man, you should hear this baby purr.

Now, back to the trade. We feel like there are a lot of very pertinent situations that make a trade of this nature justifiable.

Situation #1 - You got the wife a 2009 Honda Odyssey EX-L for Christmas -- white to match the beautiful snow that covered the ground. SURPRISE!!! She wants blue. Now she's slowly adding arsenic to your chili and you're in the doghouse forever. Well DUH, this is a situation where it totally makes sense to trade. We're totally OK with white. Our van is blue. This is called Synergy. You should feel lucky/blessed that we're here for you.

Situation #2 - You and your wife went car shopping because she said you spend too much time at work. You bought her a beautiful new 2007 Honda Odyssey Touring Edition with all the money you were making because you were staying at work so long. Lucky her... or so you thought. Well, women are rarely satisfied and in typical fashion she just wants more and more and now you just want to show her who's boss. Hello? What better way than this. Give her van away. Makes perfect sense to me.

Situation #3 - Let's say you got caught up in the 'keeping up with the Jones' game. You have a sweet house, a dog named "Easy Money", and an Audi in the three car garage that is parked next to your 2008 Honda Odyssey EX. The economy tanks and you can't make payments on jack squat. Its bankruptcy time... Well, why go into bankrupty with a bunch of sweet stuff? That's lame. It would be way better to go into bankruptcy with a wicked lame Dodge Grand Caravan. I'm your man.

Now obviously I haven't provided all the possible scenarios, but if you still need some incentive, I'll tell you what I'm going to do. If you act now, I'm going to throw in a free ice scraper (particularly useful since the defroster is so-so).

NOTE: If you have an Odyssey that is a 2005 or less, I'd be willing to make a similar deal for my bike.


Please note that the Dodge Grand Caravan in the picture looks much better than ours.
