If hearsay really bothers you that much, keep it until 2.5years/30k miles if you're that worried. Let it go with a little warranty period left, and a buyer/dealership is more at ease to pick it up from you for a reasonable price. Right now you are in recovery mode from dropping that large of a downpayment. Don't double down by letting it go at such a loss when it's operating just fine.
