Sounds like no matter which way you go, you win! What could be wrong with that!
We had transmission trouble with our 2000 Ford F350 PSD, but yours is a standard so no issues there. It's always nice to hang on to the old along with the new if it's been a good friend. I kept our 1998 Expedition after buying a new one, for no particular reason other than I just always liked it. Today, my daughter still drives it with almost 200K miles on it. It's not always trouble free, but it's always got here home and costs her very little to keep.
