Last year I got out of leasing vehicles. I currently have a used minivan with a curt hitch and a mobility scooter rack that I use like a little truck bed. I really wanted to buy a truck, and I've been looking at Tacomas, Ridgelines, F150 (3 seater). I can't justify $36k+ for something that gets such poor gas mileage. The Maverick solves this problem. I'm hoping that it will be reliable for the 15 years (12k miles per year) that I'm hoping to get out of it.
