This is turning into a saga of near epic proportions! Hope the Disney Inversion Therapy works for you!
I know you're looking at the financial aspect, but the maverick will be boring in comparison.Local dealers have 2.0T AWD 8 speed (strippo) Maverick trucks for $25K or less......food for thought if you can get 20K out of your 4-5 YO ST-1 ?????
Kelley lists my 2017 ST 1 with 34,500 miles (very good condition) with an average trade-in = $22,378.
Those goldmine style coasters may not be that fast, but they are more jerky around the corners.
