I've been driving a '96 Ford Ranger Pickup. It's got a lot of miles on it (155K) but I've taken excellent care of it over the years and it's still going strong.
I inherited a 2000 Nissan Frontier Pickup. It only has 50K miles on it but has never been maintained and needs quite a bit of work including brakes.
When I took the Nissan to my mechanics for the repair work, I cautioned him that my budget's tight and too let me know the total before he did the brakes. He said that he was interested in my Ranger! I might be able to give him my Ranger for the work needed on the Nissan! Yea me!! That will save me the hassle of selling the Ranger, too!

Bartering CAN be a good thing! Hopefully you know your mechanic well and have known him for a LONG time and can trust him. The problem arises after he has your Ranger and you have a non-functioning Nissan and he doesn't have the time or inclination to fix it per your agreement.
