Do you own it outright or are you making payments?

new ones went for 18-20k, some as low as 16 brand new, so once you drive it off the lot it loses roughly up to 20% then, then slowly declines in speed over time.

You can buy a brand new SE Sport pkg for $17,000 at a smoking good deal. Why would someone buy a used SE for more money than a new one?

Why did you buy a car if you need to buy a house?

$2,000 rebate on a SE hatch 203A with sport pkg at invoice 5 speed is $17,113. Add $1,000 for auto at invoice.

Also that's invoice, any employee or retired Ford employee pays even less. They are probably being truthful with you and it sucks that you paid what you did 2,500 miles ago.
