    I had my '15 four years and never dropped a dime on repairs, just a few mods, gasoline, oil and insurance.

    so not quite 9%/yr which is pretty much standard across all car makes. That's why I buy my cars for 15% off MSRP out the door or 22% off MSRP before taxes and fees.

    I got a 30% invoice cut on 2 year leftover. 23k otd tax for 34k sticker car.

    It can depreciate but I think I come out even really.

    That's not bad at all! I got 32k otd on a 38k sticker car that was a 1 year leftover, 0% financing, plus free tint, floor mats and free extended warranty.

    34k range for 18 gt a10 pp1. Added $450 for E85 tune. Ripping 11 second quarters in 2700 plus da does not suck. Lol.

    *Almost* loaded. You’re missing PP1/magneride which would have put it over $58k new.

    I have had some panel misalignment's but Ford and my great dealer (shout out to Pompano Ford and Warren the service manager) it was all fixed and the only thing I replaced was the battery. Great car.
