  1. Unibody repair

    It all depends on the damage. But in general, it's not much different than body on frame vehicles, with the exception that you can't just lift the cab or the bed off of it. But, yes, body panels can be replaced or repaired.
  2. Maverick depreciation / resale value?

    I would generally agree, but it all depends on the numbers. If you have a 5.9% interest rate on an 84 month loan, you pay it down quickly. If you have a 0.9% interest rate on a 48 month loan, use the money on something more profitable. And that's only taking the Maverick into account. A loan...
  3. Planned purchases / mods for your Maverick?

    Seriously, though, the first thing will be a set of good quality, fitted seat covers. I've got children and there's no way they're getting in my Maverick without some sacrificial fabric under them.
  4. Planned purchases / mods for your Maverick?

    Just to irritate the wife, I might have to get some truck nuts.
  5. What do you like LEAST about the Maverick?

    I disagree. This thread is 19 pages long because it's an open-ended question that everyone can relate to. Personally, I love the Maverick. I haven't even seen it in person yet or driven it yet, and I love it. That said, there is bound to be SOMETHING that I like the LEAST about it. Nothing big...
  6. Pricing & Part #: 2022 Maverick SNUG TOP SPORT (Bed Cap / Camper Shell / Topper)

    Yeah, that's pretty pricey, especially for a budget truck.
  7. Putting weight in the bed helps FWD traction?

    It shouldn't make much difference one way or the other. The weight of the engine being over the drive axle helps with traction. If you put a lot of weight in the bed, it could hurt you traction. But overall, it should handle like a FWD crossover or FWD sedan.
  8. 2022MY Maverick Retail Scheduling Will Now Take Place on Thursday, July 29

    For "Reservations," no they don't have a legal obligation to honor prices. But for orders, I would think that they do.
  9. 1" Suspension lift... Would you do it?

    Just out of curiosity, why would you buy the smallest truck on the market and then try to make it bigger? If you want bigger, couldn't you just buy a Ranger or F-150?
  10. 🗓 2022 Maverick Dates For Ordering Scheduling and Start of Production

    That's not entirely true, either. Ford is scheduling assemblies based more on component availability than on when the orders were placed. The specific build that you want has much more of an impact on your truck's assembly than when you ordered it. They are also going to lump certain builds into...
  11. Sorry - I have to ask... (1L water bottles storage)

    Where did you get this? Is it available in Area 51?
  12. General tips on ordering negotiations for 2022 Maverick? Is it even possible?

    The Escape wasn't a brand new model just a year ago. It's been around for 2 decades. Sure, there are redesigns every few years, but it doesn't make sense to compare that to the release of a brand new model. The simple fact is that there is nothing on them market (yet) that is even comparable to...
  13. Documentation Fees at your dealer?

    I have no idea. Make them explain it to you. What is the lemon law fee? I've never heard of that one either. And tire fees and battery fees? For what? That dealership makes more money on fees than on markup from invoice.
  14. Documentation Fees at your dealer?

    $199 doc fees at Pundmann Ford in St. Charles, MO.
  15. General tips on ordering negotiations for 2022 Maverick? Is it even possible?

    A big part of the appeal of the Maverick is its entry price. 20k for a crew cab truck is appealing. 30k would likely put it out of my reach. And I don't expect to see too many on dealerships lots, let alone on them XL trim level. I ordered an XL with the 2.0 ecoboost and the 4k towing. I threw...
  16. 2-door Maverick?

    It's not going to happen. Certainly not anytime soon. Ford's interest in making the Maverick was to reclaim market share of sedan drivers. They want people (families) to switch to small trucks. While I'm sure a lot of people would like a two door light truck, it wouldn't gain Ford anything...
  17. What do you like LEAST about the Maverick?

    Seems like the perfect opportunity for any aftermarket cover made of clear silicone.
  18. What do you like LEAST about the Maverick?

    Good call. My kids are both in highback booster seats, so it's not too bad to take them out and put them in, but I wouldn't have thought of it.
  19. Maverick Owner's Manual / Oreos Thins Promotion

    Is this real. I'm really not sure if I'm hoping it's real or if I'm hoping it's fake.
  20. Age of targeted Maverick Buyer

    I'm 37. An XL with the tow package is perfect for me. I think Ford is targeting the 25-40 buyers, but IMO the Maverick is very well suited to just about every age driver.
