So I'm in the middle of selling my house. It seems I will be left with a small amount if debt (my share is around $7000). My ex has put forward a suggestion that he will take on all of the debt if I swap cars with him. His car is a couple of years older and a bit smaller. I'm torn at what to do.

What would you choose??

If the car is still in good condition and would work for you without you having to pay a lot to get it there I would swap cars.
$7000 is a lot to me so it would be good to get rid of it quickly if you have no aversions to using the other car.

I'd get the other car thoroughly checked over before even thinking about it.

Sounds good to me, particularly if there's nothing wrong with his car. Perhaps it's worth getting someone to look over it for you to make sure you won't have to pay some huge expense on it after you've had it for a few months. Surely it would save a lot of hassle for you both in the long run?
Can you fit kids into the other car fine?
NB. I'm assuming you already know how much the house is making and he's not going to make a profit you know nothing about?

Yeah I know all the figures. I actually still live in the house. His car was actually my car bought brand new in 2006. My car was bought brand new in 2010 so we are the only owners of the cars.
I only have two small issues. Firstly - his car smells like smoke (a habit he only started when we broke up) and it has a lot more kms on it.
Another thought I've had is I could probably sell my car (it's a small 4WD) and almost clear my debt if I bought a brand new smaller car anyway??
Oh I'm so stuck on what to do!!!

I was thinking yep swap cars until I saw your post about it smelling of smoke. I wouldn't be able to handle that. Yuck!
Selling your car and getting a new smaller car sounds like a good option though as long as a smaller car works for you.

Gross I hate the smell of smoke in cars especially!
I would not trade cars, yes while you wouldn't have a $7000 debt you would have an older car which has done a far few more KM. The option of selling your car to buy a smaller one is a better idea IMO
