I'm sorry please correct my previous posts to indicate $2,000 not $1,500. I did all the math assuming $1,500 in incentives which was wrong. (Too many incentive threads going on at once haha)

It's on it's way down but for how long? Paid $2.75 here in S. Florida the other day. I'm headed to Texas for the holidays and expect it to be much lower.

Check the belt for cracks around 60-75k miles. Replace the knobs/pulleys while you're in there changing the belt. Preventative maintenance!
